Jon Moxley is all for supporting whatever his daughter wants to do in the future.
Recently, Renee Paquette gave birth to her and Jon Moxley’s first child. There is yet to be an official name reveal for the child, but Jon Moxley hosted a special Oral Sessions podcast as Renee Paquette takes some time off to get acclimated to motherhood.
During the episode, Jon Moxley was asked about whether or not he would support his daughter wanting to get involved in the wrestling business and furthermore, whether he would support her wanting to do Deathmatch wrestling.
Jon Moxley, who candidly admitted he doesn't fully know how he will feel once he gets to truly know his daughter, instinctively said he would support whatever she wants to do as long as she does it safely.
“If she was really passionate about it, then, yeah, go for it. If not, if she was just like playing around, then go play around with it. Sometimes you get into some stuff and you play around. sometimes you're gung ho about something, I was gung ho about this, this was all I've ever wanted to do. I was not playing around having fun. This was not, let's try this out, see if it works out, you know, some people come into wrestling with that attitude and then go on to make millions of dollars, then they get really good at it, you know? So it can work. But [with] me, this was my life. This was it. There's no other anything."
He continued, "I would assess where her mindset was and if it was like, ‘Hey, get in there and take a bump, see how that feels.’ Then, maybe everything changes. So yeah, I mean, but if she wanted to go be a circus performer, or a math teacher, or join the Peace Corps, or be a pro wrestler or a hockey player, or ringette, we don't have that here. But Renee might be able to teach you to play ringette whatever she wanted to do. I say, Do whatever you want to do and I would support you. "
Specifically, when being asked about the possibility of his daughter wanting to be involved in Deathmatch wrestling, Jon Moxley said it's hard to truly assess somebody you don't know yet but ultimately, he remains supportive.
“I mean, it's hard to say because this person isn't in existence yet. So I don't know this person. So I mean, my initial instinct is like, okay, maybe not -- I wouldn't tell her no, I would guide her. I would say if you're gonna do something, here's how we do it safely… So, if she ever wanted to get into wrestling, in theory, I would rather guide it and make sure it was done correctly and safely and right and for the right reasons and so forth like that. But I don't know this person yet.”
