Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose aka Jon Moxley who is also a former AEW world champion recently said that wrestling scripts should not affect a professional wrestler’s personal life and it should not be a thing in wrestling.
Even though it is not very much cleared but from the way the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion made his remarks it seemed like he is once again attacking WWE for their kayfabe rules. It is true that in the history of professional wrestling WWE is the promotion and that It is true that in the history of professional wrestling WWE is the promotion that have always been very much conservative with kayfabe.
Jon Moxley Thinks Scripts Should Not Be A Huge Thing In Wrestling
There were even examples of stars getting released from WWE because not maintaining kayfabe properly. For example Serena Deeb first arrived in the main roster of WWE in 2010 she was a member of the Straight Edge society run by CM Punk. She was getting massive praises from the fans and critics for her amazing performance but got released because of not maintaining kayfabe outside of wrestling.
We have mostly seen the biggest legends of WWE always maintaining kayfabe and staying in character for most of the time. They even keep staying in character while on interviews and while interacting to fans. WWE is the strictest professional wrestling promotion for maintaining kayfabe.
Jon Moxley who is also a former AEW world champion recently spoke with Cincy 360 where he said that wrestling scripts should not affect a professional wrestler’s personal life and it should not be a thing in wrestling. He said;
“I’ve talked a lot of crap about what I think sucks in wrestling. I think characters should be authentic and I don’t like hokey crap or scripts and writers. I’ll never read a script for the rest of my life, bet your ass on that.
“A guy like Eddie Kingston is Eddie Kingston 24/7. He finishes his cigarette, walks into the building, and it’s the same guy. There is no ‘put-on’ character going on here. That’s what wrestling should be.
“Letting guys be themselves and having their own creativity whether they are Orange Cassidy or a crazy high-flying team like the Young Bucks who think up the most ridiculous and action-packed sequences. No one is trying to tone each other down or say, ‘that’s too much.”
