If Jon Moxley had it his way, he?ll be wrestling for a long time.
The current AEW World Champion recently spoke with Bleacher Report and mentioned how much he loves wrestling and how much longer he would like to do it for. The 34-year-old Moxley hopes to wrestle into his 50s, though he admits that he recognizes it can at any moment.
"I'd like to wrestle until I am in my 50s, but it can end at any time. I don't want to spend nine months filming a movie when I could have been having matches. I want to do as much wrestling as I can while I have that window of time. Acting could be a thing for later," Moxley said.
On the subject of age and the different levels of experience across the AEW roster, Moxley said he loves working with the younger wrestlers on the roster and is excited that the roster includes several notable veterans such as Chris Jericho and the members of SCU.
"I love getting to work with the young dudes who are in their 20s who are getting their first chance to be on national television. They're unencumbered and not being repackaged or told who they are, so they are just going to keep getting better. Some of these guys are nuts and they have these crazy ideas and they push me to think of things in new ways. I don't go in there and go 'Let me tell you what we are going to do because I am more experienced.' I go 'What do you want to do? I'm old and slow so tell me your cool idea.' I am all about learning from the young guys because they have a different perspective than me. Then we have this incredible group of veterans like SCU. We have a legend in Chris Jericho, who I always learn from. And then, we have this group of guys who are in the prime of their career. We have people at every level, and it's a smorgasbord of guys to work with. It's endless opportunities of stories to tell. There is an endless sea of narrative possibilities, which is good because we have a lot of time to fill,? Moxley said.
Moxley recently retained his AEW World Championship against The Butcher on the September 30 episode of Dynamite. You can read the full interview at this link.
