Eric Bischoff has spoken about AEW star Jon Moxley and how he needs to adapt his character to become a real top level talent.
Speaking on his podcast, Bischoff said:
“To me, he’s two-dimensional. And he needs to find that third dimension, you know, to get him to a Chris Jericho-type level. It’s nothing wrong with his work, nothing at all wrong with his character other than I’m not seeing a lot of depth to it. There’s a sameness to it. There’s not enough range to it. I’d like to see that. And I think that that’s true across the board for a lot of characters, not just Jon Moxley. You know, to be able to shift gears. You know, you go back and look at Chris Jericho’s career and he’s been able to successfully reinvent himself so many different times in so many different ways, because he has that range and that third dimension that a lot of people have really never developed and a lot of top guys don’t have it. You know, guys that you consider top guys don’t have it. But I think if any talent, not just Jon Moxley, but any talent wants to reach that next level, they’ve got to be able to have that range that allows them to position elements of their character that make them feel more interesting.”
Moxley immediately became one of the biggest names in AEW when he debuted at May 25’s Double or Nothing event after leaving WWE at the end of April.
He is currently set for an AEW World Championship match against Chris Jericho at the Revolution pay-per-view on February 29.
