See this is why goofy Mox/Ambrose should never die for good. As much as we love new Badass Mox, the goofy side, while it was overplayed in WWE, is part of the reason he got so over. That goofy, lovable charm. So I'm glad that's sticking around.
And it's mostly ad-libbed. If you have it scripted like a movie scene you wouldn't have got any of this.

Shota staggers and falls again, Jon Moxley comments "Are you down again? Get Up" end scene

Mox also dropped some great one-liners that you could put on a t-shirt "International Purveyor of Violence" was one.

Not at all. WWE would have had Umino all following around Moxley and making it embarrassing like Ellsworth following him around for no reason. This was more a bullying type thing. Basically he's like I beat your ass now you're gonna do what I say. So the guy becomes his bitch because he doesn't want to get another ass beating.

Re: Mox has made a new friend in Shota

I love the possibilities of this angle! Itll be fun to watch the young lions growth. Wondering if he will be a foil for Moxley's insanity, or will he himself decend further into madness with the more time he spends under the learning tree? Either outcome should be fun

Yeah if this was WWE people would be saying "Typical WWE comedy crap". Which is what Ambrose was, that and one of the worst WWE Champions ever. Guess it helped him being a member of the Shield, otherwise he would have been lucky to get more than one IC Title run.

Your obsession with hating Mox is getting really old, really fast. No one cares if you think he's the same.

Worst WWE Champion ever? You can dislike a guy but that is just ridiculous. So ridiculous it kills any credibility you might have and makes every thing you say meaningless. Moxley is one of the hottest stars in wrestling now for a reason. Moxley is extremely talented.


He's got ton of charisma, good look, good talker and worker. Just because you don't see it doesn't make it true. He would have excelled in WWE even without the Shield. Remember he was one of the top call ups from FCW before the Shield. Who first feud was going to be with Foley originally for a reason. If anything the success he's having now shows WWE brought him down. Touch of comedy is fine and that's all this was. Not over the top crap WWE consistently does. I just saw this was the most viewed new Japan post show interview ever actually.

This is a thread about something Mox did. You clearly don't like him, so why are you even in here commenting on it? You knew you weren't going to like it before you even came in here.


I also don't think there's any harm in occasional comedy stuff for Mox. It's always been part of his character, WWE just fucked it up and made it his ENTIRE character instead of just part of it. Even in his FCW, pre WWE days and Shield heel days he would be funny.

I love that Mox basically wants to adopt Shota

Met Dean/Mox on March 28 2015/April 2 2016/August 20 2016/April 1 2017/April 7 2019!!
Met Roman on April 2 2016/April 7 2018!! Met Seth on March 31 2017/April 6 2019!!

Upcoming shows: WWE Melbourne, October 23 2019

Re: Mox has made a new friend in Shota

Moxley has knocked it out of the park since leaving WWE. Just loved that promo with a half dead Shota, had me laughing. Gets Moxley over and Shota too, which is how you do it. I have to say Shota sold that beating like a pro.

This.

Even when he was stalking, and basically trying to murder Regal, he had comedic elements.
I love that Moxley has a charm about him that makes you want to love him, and then he immediately makes you regret loving him by doing horrible things. Something WWE didn't understand.

Re: Mox has made a new friend in Shota

This is nothing like what they would have done in WWE

If this was the WWE he would have squirted mustard all over Shota or told him to shave his back or something.

He injected a slight bit of humor into the promo and it was fantastic. Get over yourselves
