Jon Moxley (formerly known as Dean Ambrose) left WWE at the end of April 2019.
Since then, the former WWE Champion has gone on to wrestle for both AEW and NJPW, and is expected to feature as one of All Elite Wrestling’s main eventers.
Despite currently wrestling for WWE’s two biggest competitors, Jon Moxley reportedly still gets healthcare from Vince McMahon’s company.
Following this week’s episode of AEW: Dynamite where Jon Moxley put Kenny Omega through a glass table, AEW boss Tony Khan revealed that Moxley gets his healthcare through Renee Young, who is a full-time employee of WWE:
“A lot of people in [AEW], that are wrestlers, are insured,” said Khan. “Of the people you saw tonight, a large percentage of them are insured through AEW because they work full-time. Most people haven’t been on all five shows. Of the people that have been on all five shows, almost all of them are full-time and have full-time benefits. Jon Moxley does get healthcare, but he gets it through his wife (Renee Young), who is a full-time employee also. Kenny (Omega) does get healthcare from here. He is a full-time employee of the company.”
The idea of healthcare in WWE is one that has been rather controversial. As WWE Superstars are labelled as independent contractors rather than employees, they are not provided with healthcare.
However, those who work in WWE’s offices or on-screen as personalities, such as Renee Young, are entitled to healthcare.
