Jon Moxley gives his assessment of both Tony Khan and Vince McMahon.
As one of several wrestlers who currently compete for AEW and spent years wrestling for WWE, Moxley has an understanding of how each man operates and how they differ. In an interview with Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Moxley said Khan is a good man who is a friend to pretty much everyone in the roster. Comparing the two, Moxley said Khan shows plenty of excitement when discussing potential ideas to implement on AEW programming while he says talking to McMahon is like talking to a door.
"He's really good dude, man. I think he's a friend to a most everybody in the roster. Real easy and approachable, and not in a bad way. A lot of people probably at first wanted to be like, oh, he wants to hang out with the wrestlers. He's just going to be one of those too friendly with the boys type guys. But he's not that at all. I mean, right now he's worked in analytics for the NFL draft and doing all this other business stuff. I mean, he's a really smart guy. He grew up in that family where they have this empire. So he's got a lot of business sense. He's business savvy, but also just an incredibly passionate wrestling fan. He's so easy to get excited, if I go up like, "Dude, I got this idea. What if we did this?" And he'd be like, "Dude, that's awesome. What if we did this then? And then we can do that." And he'll get all excited like a little kid. And I'll be like, "Hold on, tone it down. Tone it down." Which is cool. You want that. Whereas sometimes, I come in and talk to Vince and I'm all excited. I'm like, "Dude, okay, here we go. We're going to do this, this, this. Then this. Then we do this on Raw. And then on pay-per-view this. What do you think?" And it's like talking to a door. Dude, hello, I'm giving you awesome. They're like, nope. We're just going to do the same old crap we always do. I'm like, whatever. But yeah, it's a real good experience where I am. He's an honest dude. He's not a carny, and even though he's business savvy, he's not like a shark. He's just an honest, straightforward, good dude," Moxley said.
Moxley is the current AEW World Champion, having won the title at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view in February when he defeated Chris Jericho in the main event. Moxley recently defended his title on AEW Dynamite against Jake Hager.
