WWE recently hired Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff to run Raw and SmackDown Live respectively. They were two fairly big changes to WWE and not coincidentally came after it became clear there were very unhappy Superstars in the locker room and fans who were growing tired of the WWE product.
One of the people who brightly shined a light on the issues in WWE, especially with creative was Jon Moxley. Moxley recently weighed in on the decision to hire Heyman and Bischoff when he spoke to Store Horseman.
Without suggesting he personally had anything to do with the changes, Moxley said, “They definitely made some kind of move.” He added, “Paul Heyman is really smart it sounds like that is a great idea. I just hope Vince lets them do their ideas. It’s not just ‘I made him head of creative, but I’m telling him what to do type of thing.”
He then moved over to talk about Eric Bischoff and gave him props for creating the NWO. He also said he was behind some of the worst shows in wrestling history. “He is probably pretty motivated to make you forget that part of the resume,” he said.
In the end, Moxley noted, “The more wrestling that is good, the more fans that there are and the better it is for everybody.”
Moxley Doesn’t Have a War Mentality
Moxley is not interested in getting into a Monday Night War situation when it comes to wrestling. He wants everyone to do well.
“This is not the Monday Night Wars,” Moxley noted. “Now, we are over here doing this, they are always going to be there, it would be a fool’s errand to try and take them down, it wouldn’t be good for the wrestling business to try and take them down. We are providing a good alternative, showing that there is a world outside of that.”
He noted how excited he was that AEW will be moving to TNT and said, “First time in a long time, TNA was prime time for a little bit but this is a first since basically WCW.”
