WWE is going through a transitional period right now, with Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman set to take the reins on both Raw and SmackDown in the coming week.
WWE knows that All Elite Wrestling is their big competition right now and they are trying everything that they can to compete but it is coming off as quite desperate to many members of the WWE Universe.
Jon Moxley has been quite outspoken about his time in WWE since his departure from Vince McMahon’s company back in April but despite this initial negativity, he was recently a guest on The Store Horseman podcast where he was asked about whether or not he would return to WWE in the future and his answer was quite interesting.
“I mean, you have to say, ‘never say never.” And that’s the answer everybody gives, you know? ‘Never say never,’ it’s like I cannot imagine the scenario right now. Like 15 years from now, 10 years from now, the whole thing could be different. Who knows? The WWE that I left, I could never go back to, I would rather work at a grocery store,” he said via SEScoops.
Moxley was critical of the way he was treated throughout his final year with WWE and is obviously enjoying much more freedom at present while being under contract with AEW.
The promotion does have a pay-per-view this weekend but Moxley isn’t part of the card since he is preparing to compete in B-Block matches as part of this year’s NJPW G1 Climax Tournament on Saturday night.
It is entirely feasible that WWE can change their current fortunes around and become a very different company in the future, which could be why Moxley is refusing to rule out a return but could be waiting until after Triple H takes control.
