Jon Moxley Turned Down WWE's Offer To Write A Book

In January, Renee Paquette and Tony Khan revealed Renee's husband Jon Moxley was writing a book.

No further details were given and it is unknown when the book will be released or who is behind the publishing of the book, but both were excited because it was written in Moxley's voice.

Something that would not have happened if Moxley took WWE's offer to write a book during his time in the company.

Speaking to Fight Game Media, Moxley discussed writing a book now and turning down WWE's offer to have him write a book.

"Maybe in the middle? I don't know," said Moxley when asked how far along he is in the book. "I've never written a book. I don't even know how I got sucked into this because I never had the desire to write a book. I'm not a former President. I don't need a memoir. I don't have a pressing desire or need like 'I have to tell my side of the story.' I don't actually know how to write. WWE wanted me to write a book. I was like, 'I don't have a desire to do that.' They gave me an offer and everything and they had me talking to this writer and he was like, 'We'll talk and hang out on the road and I'll put it into words.' I got real uncomfortable with the thought of somebody else writing...if you write a book, it's your words and it wasn't going to be my words. So, I was uncomfortable with it. It was money. I asked another guy who wrote a WWE book what the process was like because they crank those out. I was like, 'If you could do it again, would you do it?' He was like, 'No, because it wasn't the book I wanted it to be.' That was all I needed to hear. I told [WWE] I wasn't interested and turned it down. I'm not into the idea of a ghostwriter. I sent in some samples and they loved it and were into it. I sent a couple more and then I was committed. It is hard. I'm using Chris Jericho's editor, the guy who did his books. We're working on it. No news or information. It'll probably be terrible or the best book ever."

Depending on how much the book covers, Moxley could be writing about his upcoming Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch against Kenny Omega at AEW Revolution. The AEW World Title bout was made official on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite.
