AEW Star Says He Is ‘Disrespected’ & ‘Taken For Granted’

AEW Star Says He Is ‘Disrespected’ & ‘Taken For Granted’ AEW

An AEW star has made it clear, regardless of the outcome of a title shot, he is still going to be ‘disrespected’ and ‘taken for granted’.

Speaking to Road To, ahead of his potentially history making moment at NJPW Windy City Riot, Jon Moxley made it clear that whatever happens, he knows it won’t matter.

Moxley said:

“Shots at the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship don’t come around every day. Even if I win, it’s not going to matter.

“I’ll be the most overlooked, disrespected, forgotten about, taken for granted wrestler in the history of this business. It’s not going to matter, but it means something to me,”

“I’ve been doing this since I was 19. Since the first championship I ever won. I see the mountain, I climb the mountain. Everybody standing next to me looks up and says it’s too high. ‘You’re not going to do that, you can’t do that.’ I say, ‘Watch me.’

“Then, I find a higher one, and I climb that. Then, I find a higher one, and I climb that, and a higher one. Now, I’m about to do something that nobody in the history of pro wrestling has ever done.”

Jon Moxley is set to challenge Tetsuya Naito for the IWGP World Heavyweight at NJPW Windy City Riot on Friday April 12, 2023.

If he is to win, he will be the first to hold World Heavyweight titles in WWE, AEW and NJPW.
