Former WWE and AEW World Champion Jon Moxley has revealed a Hell in a Cell pitch that was rejected by Vince McMahon.
Moxley has made no secret of the fact that he felt like a watered-down version of himself during his time in WWE as Dean Ambrose, and this is just another example.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Jon Moxley said:
“We know exactly what’s going to happen, it’s the same stupid Hell in a Cell match. I felt like I was always overpromising what I was allowed to actually deliver. I’ve pitched so many things over the years, everything imaginable, I have pitched. Something simple like tearing the canvas and exposing the boards. I pitched that for a Hell in a Cell match, and like Hunter and Vince and Seth. I take a box cutter and expose the wood, and they look at me like I’m f**king stupid. They don’t get it all, Vince is like ‘I don’t think people are going to understand it’. They looked at me like I was an idiot. Hunter was rolling his eyes, Vince is confused.”
Moxley is not having the same problem in AEW as he has already had several hardcore style matches and at Revolution on March 7 he challenges Kenny Omega for the AEW World Title in an Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch.
