Jon Moxley doesn't believe there will be an AEW and WWE partnership in the near future, but he still has a big name on his list he'd like to see in AEW.
Of all the names Moxley could choose from to join him in AEW, he would like to see Christian in the company because he believes his creativity would be allowed to truly shine.
"I’ll tell you, a guy I’d like to see here is Christian," Moxley told Gary Cassidy of Inside The Ropes. "I don’t know if that a one-off or him in the Royal Rumble but h looked he looked frigging good to me, looked like he was in great shape, he looked sharp, man. I tell you, he’s one of the guys that’s – the wrestlers know it more so than anybody – Christian is so good. Like, his brain and his execution, and his mind for wrestling is just like next-level."
Moxley continued by saying, "First time we worked with him, you know, we’d come in and we’re doing these six mans with The Shield, really pushing the pace and trying to make the most exciting matches and we’re pushing these guys to like, all these dream team guys, we’re pushing them to be like, 'No, let’s do another thing and another thing, let’s add more to do another save and another thing, and let’s do a triple this,' or whatever. And we’re really pushing the pace, you know, and like thinking, like, 'All right. Yeah, nobody can keep up with us. This is awesome. And then we work with Christian one night. I remember me and Seth looking at each other going, 'Damn, Christian is good,' Christian made us feel like, 'Damn, he’s like… We thought we were really f***ing good. He’s like next level.' The people who work with him know, in the industry, you know, his respect level is huge, the things that he could do with the wrestlers in AEW. and all the creative kind of freedom, but, you know, taking things but there’s no hindrance on anything creatively here, obviously, we’re having a frigging Exploding Death Match, so the things Christian could do at AEW, I would be extremely excited to see that. That would be that would be my number one dream guy."
Christian returned to the ring at Royal Rumble 2021 for his first official match since 2014. It is unknown if he will continue to wrestle as he has not been on television since the Royal Rumble.
