Moxley declares war in his first AEW promo

‘We have a mission - to knock the pillars of this industry on their ass.’

We’ve seen his first appearance for All Elite Wrestling, and marveled at an instantly iconic backstage pic with AEW Executive Vice-President and fellow WWE-ex Cody Rhodes. Here’s his first promo for All Elite, and let’s just say Mox doesn’t shy away from referring to his old bosses...

“One day, they will all come to my funeral just to make sure that I stay dead. But today is not that day! I am alive! My heart is still beating, and I am breathing fresh air for the first time in a long time.

My name is Jon Moxley, and I am on a mission to reclaim my soul. And I know I’m not the only one who thinks, ‘You know, it’s about time this industry got a facelift!’ So make no mistake about it - this is an official declaration of war tonight to anyone who wants to get in my way, and anybody who stands in AEW’s way.

We have a mission - to knock the pillars of this industry on their ass. We ain’t reading history books anymore, baby, we writin’ em! And this is what you’d call a paradigm shift.”
