Irate Jon Moxley Responds To CM Punk In Expletive-Filled Retort AEW

Former AEW World Champion Jon Moxley has given his response to the controversial CM Punk Instagram post from last week.

As well as referencing issues with Tony Khan, Chris Jericho and Dave Meltzer, Punk called out what he believed was an idea that “sucked” from Moxley about how their feud should have played out like Rocky 3.

On the latest episode of the podcast hosted by his own wife Renee Paquette – The Sessions – Jon Moxley said:

“It’s f**king annoying. Just because somebody said some stupid s**t on social media, like that’s not news. But it is. It ends up being a thing. I don’t wanna get dragged into this dumb s**t. I could f**king unload on a lot of f**king people right now. And when I start getting dragged into this s**t, it tempts me to do that. But I’m not gonna f**king sink to that level.

“But, I will say this, just gonna give you like a tidbit of information from my point of view. The entire summer, I was not under contract. No contract. Free agent. I was at SummerSlam weekend wrestling f**king Desperado and s**t, the day of SummerSlam. F**king suplexed him on a bunch of aluminum cans and s**t, cut in half, it was f**king dope.

“I could have walked into SummerSlam that night. With the AEW f**king belt. If I had been so inclined. Nobody knew that because I don’t put my s**t out there in the world and let everybody know every f**king thing about my business, you know. I was not under contract.

“Reason being, if you’re curious, because I got out of rehab, and my contract was coming up. They extended it for the time that I missed, cool. I’m glad they did actually because I didn’t wanna feel like I owed them anything. They extended it a little bit, it was coming up, they were talking to me about it.

“And the last thing I wanted to do when I got out of rehab – because all they were telling me was basically, ‘Logic will tell you don’t go back to wrestling, because you’re just gonna fall into the same old habits’. So I wanted to just like, ease back into it, and see what life was like on the other side. And the last thing I wanted to do was just hurry up and sign a big long-term commitment. Because what if s**t started to go off the rails?

“Pretty quickly I was like, ‘Man, actually, being sober’s awesome, this is fantastic, I’m having so much fun’. I was working with my friends, Blackpool Combat Club, me and Bryan (Danielson) and s**t, f**king (William) Regal, this is great. They’re talking to me about signing a new thing and I was like, ‘If everything just stays exactly as it is right now, I’ll be here forever’. You can pay me in cash in an envelope at the end of the night, I don’t give a f**k.

“But I can’t tell you what I’m gonna feel like in six months, especially not in three years, or five years. And once I make a commitment, then I will push through injuries, and I will push myself too hard, and I will do all these things that add up, and leads you down the road or whatever. So I was not in a hurry to make any kind of grand commitments at first.

“That being said, during this time period, the night that ‘what’s his d**k’ (CM Punk) is talking about in Minneapolis, the night he came back and was hopping out on one foot, bumping around Inner Circle or whatever after me and Jericho wrestled – a badass match by the way.

“So we’re talking later about stuff. Now keep in mind – this is my whole point.

“I basically don’t work there. For all intents and purposes, I don’t even work here. Tony (Khan) is not my boss. I don’t even have to be in this room. I don’t have to do s**t. So even me being in this room and offering – and agreeing to – a storyline, that puts you over at the pay-per-view, if anything, I’m bending over backwards. For Tony. And for this dude (Punk). And for the company and everybody.

“I didn’t have to. I didn’t have to do s**t. If anything, I was bending over backwards. So, that’s it.”

Punk’s original Instagram post was as follows:

SIGH. I wasn’t cleared to come back to wrestle yet. Then plan was to wrestle at the ppv. I sat and listened to moxleys Rocky three idea. I explained how I’d never seen a Rocky movie.I and thought the idea sucked but if the boss wanted to do it whatever. He said he wouldn’t lose to me. I’d never experienced someone refusing to lose to me. I just laughed. I asked Tony if this was what he wanted. He said yes. He’s the boss so I said okay but I’d need to be cleared first. They kept saying it could just be a squash se l didn’t need to be cleared. I scoffed at that. My health i more important. Dave Meltzer is a liar. Jericho is a liar and a stooge. There were plans but plans always change but I’ll never put a company above my health ever again.

Moxley also addressed all the drama in AEW in general, which you can read about at this link.
