Jon Moxley, the professional wrestling dynamo, widely celebrated for his audacious flair, is a prime fixture in promotions such as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), All Elite Wrestling (AEW), and New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). His larger-than-life persona, coupled with an electrifying in-ring style, has earned him a prominent place in the annals of professional wrestling.
Moxley initially gained traction wrestling under the moniker Dean Ambrose in WWE, where he was one of the primary members of the faction known as ‘The Shield,’ alongside Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Their tumultuous rivalry and subsequent reunion have given WWE some of its most compelling storylines. After leaving WWE, Moxley made waves when he debuted at AEW’s inaugural pay-per-view event, ‘Double or Nothing.’ Meanwhile, his journey in NJPW was marked by an intense feud with Japanese legend Minoru Suzuki.
Moxley’s wrestling career has been marked by numerous collaborations with high-profile figures in the industry. Notable examples include bouts against Triple H and Brock Lesnar in WWE, Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega in AEW, and Juice Robinson in NJPW. His non-wrestling collaborations also involve individuals like Renee Paquette, his wife and former WWE on-screen personality, and Tony Khan, AEW’s CEO.
His exploits inside the ring have not gone unrecognized. Moxley is a one-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, a two-time Intercontinental Champion, and a one-time United States Champion. His time in AEW has been equally triumphant, boasting a reign as AEW World Champion. Furthermore, he was named the Wrestler of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated in 2020.
