Jon Moxley

- Moxley loves the idea of AEW working with more companies and 2020 was going to be a really demanding schedule for him. He loves that AEW brought in Thunder Rosa to work with NWA. Wants to see it happen with ROH, IMPACT, NJPW, too.

- Moxley points at Brodie Lee and Darby Allin as people he likes facing. He likes the roughneck approach and a more physical approach. The quick Brodie build wasn't ideal, and he preferred this one.

- Moxley says Renee doesn't wanna get anywhere near his corner right now and she has an extensive non-compete. It wouldn't surprise him to see her pop up and present. She was there tonight, but couldn't appear on camera.

- Moxley on the fan: "Especially during a pandemic, I don't want your gnarly fuckin ass near me." Said he wanted people to see what happens when you try to rush the wrestlers.

Hikaru Shida
