Jon Moxley made a huge announcement earlier this week on Dynamite when he revealed that his wife and former WWE presenter Renee Young is pregnant.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter gave details on when Moxley decided to bring in this information in his promo. The previous night at 2 A.M, the AEW World Champion decided to do a promo about his father, which was totally legitimate.
Later, during the morning of the show’s broadcast, he decided to add this bit of information to his promo and texted Renee about the same.
“At 2 a.m. before the show, he came up with the inspiration to do a promo about his dad, which, by the way, was 100 percent real. On the morning of the show, when he woke up in Jacksonville, he decided he could tie it in, texted her at home and told her about it and that her phone would be exploding that night”
WON also added that Moxley wasn’t willing to do pretentious announcements on social media similar to other celebrities and wanted to keep it low-key.
Moxley’s good friend Seth Rollins is also set to take a paternity leave from WWE, with his wife Becky Lynch due soon.
