Jon Moxley clearly sees the similarity between pro wrestling and comic books and in a new interview, compares AEW & NJPW to DC and Marvel.
In a new episode of The Sessions with Renee Paquette, Moxley sits down with his wife Paquette to discuss a variety of topics of a serious nature but also, in a lighter discussion, Moxley reflects on his recent love for comic books.
Noting the ease of availability on his Kindle, and relatively low price point (“when one ends, it’s $1.99 to keep the story going so I just keep going and going,”) Mox has recently gotten back into his love of comics.
Citing a past enjoyment of graphic novels in book form from his local library, reading so many new comics during his travels has gotten him thinking about the comparisons between professional wrestling and comic books.
Commenting on the similarities in compelling characters, Moxley said of the upcoming AEW x NJPW pay-per-view, Forbidden Door:
“It occurred to me that wrestling is so much like the comic book universe in that, there’s beloved characters that can go any number of ways. One character might get brought in as a villain for a one-off and “get over” and then he ends up being a babyface with his own comic book line… some of them might team up, Forbidden Door is almost going to be like a crossover series between like DC and Marvel or something.
“There are so many comparisons between that world, and the fans, have you ever been to a Comic Con? Holy s**t it’s the same type of thing.”
