In the interview, Moxley spoke about feeling creative freedom now that he’s outside of the WWE bubble. Moxley departed from WWE in 2019 in order to join All Elite Wrestling.
While with WWE where he went by the name of Dean Ambrose, Moxley has made it known in interviews that he had issues with the way that the company was run regarding its creative.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled. Like I said, I didn’t know if I’d just disappear for a year or two years, I don’t know what I wanted to do. I just knew I wanted to have fun wrestling again. It all came back so quickly it was almost like waking up out of a long nap or something. I keep going back to it, I feel like I’m 18 again. I can’t wait to keep getting back into the ring and trying new stuff.
I pop up awake in the middle of the night going “Oooh!” with ideas and stuff, and I like to just go to the ring sometimes with no ideas and just see what happens on the fly. ‘Cause now I feel like all my synapses are firing. I didn’t really know how coming into AEW when I showed up on the first night, I didn’t know if they’d boo or if they’d cheer or make no noise or what. I had no idea, really.”
AEW holds the Revolution pay-per-view event on Saturday, February 29, 2020 in Chicago, IL from the Sears Center. Moxley will challenge Chris Jericho for the World Title at this show.
