Jon Moxley has had a lot to say about WWE ever since he left the company back in April, some of which hasn’t gone down well with many of the current stars. Despite being one of his best friends in WWE, Seth Rollins was critical of the rant that Moxley went on as part of his appearance on the Talk is Jericho podcast earlier this year.
As part of an interview with Sports Illustrated‘s media podcast back in the Summer, Rollins was critical of the way Moxley went about his WWE exit.
“I love [Moxley], I’ll always love him, but at the end of the day, we just share different perspectives about what we want out of life and about where we’re at in our own lives, I hope that he does well. I’ve kept enough tabs on him to know that he’s doing super well for himself right now and I’m happy for that, but I just don’t think there’s any reason to hop on a soapbox and complain after the fact.”
“You need to take the first step, and that’s looking in the mirror and asking yourself did you do every single thing you possibly could to make yourself and your situation what you want it to be, and if the answer is yes you did, then you can go elsewhere and complain. If that’s where he’s at mentally then go right ahead, but if he hasn’t done that, he hasn’t looked in the mirror and made that decision, then maybe he should think about that. That goes for any other disgruntled talent past or present,” he said via Bleacher Report.
Despite these comments, Rollins was recently part of a panel Q&A where he was asked about his current relationship with the former Shield member, where he revealed that he messaged Mox just last week on his birthday.
“I texted him on his birthday, which was a few days ago, and wished him well. I hope that he’s good, and he seems to be doing great at AEW and New Japan. I wish nothing but the best for him and his lovely wife, and their great dog,” he said via WrestlingInc.
He also revealed that he received a response from the former WWE star which read “Thanks Brother” to which Rollins revealed that Moxley was blunt, but the duo are still on good terms.
