Vince McMahon once admitted that Jon Moxley was taken for granted during his time in WWE, the AEW International Champion has recently revealed.

Speaking to Bleav Pro Wrestling’s Rich Ucchino, Moxley opened up about stepping up when called upon and being a constantly reliable star to carry the torch throughout his time in both WWE and AEW.

The former WWE Champion recalled his final conversation with McMahon in his response and revealed that the now-Executive Chairman of TKO Group Holdings admitted to him that “we took you for granted” during his time in WWE.

“I take a lot of pride in our work and our work ethic and the standard we set ourselves to, and the way we do the job. To be one of those guys that’s reliable, that’s always there, the downside is that it’s very easy to take you for granted.

The last conversation I had with Vince McMahon, he straight up told me, we took you for granted. It is a tough job because I got a lot of experience, a lot of stuff is very familiar to me and I’m comfortable doing stuff that a lot of other people may be intimated by.”

Moxley went on to praise Orange Cassidy for stepping up in a similar vein to headline AEW All Out earlier this month, which saw Moxley end Cassidy’s record-setting International Championship reign.

He also alluded to the fact the match was not planned out very far in advance which lines up with previous reports that CM Punk and Ricky Starks were originally planned for the main event spot instead.

“Orange Cassidy pulled off an amazing performance. He lost, but he pulled off an amazing performance in his first ever pay-per-view main event. That was not planned weeks out, in fact, everything would have looked completely different. That’s kind of how it’s going to go.

If you’re going to have any success in wrestling, it’s very rarely going to go according to plan, you’ve got to be ready to take the opportunity when it’s there and when things go array, [and] when the wave changes direction, you got to be able to surf on it and stay on your board and you’ve got to be able to go with the flow so to speak.

Every big opportunity I’ve had, probably in my career, has come completely out of the blue. You got to be ready to get your shit together and strike when the iron is hot.”

Jon Moxley Recently Named The “Greatest Pro Wrestler That Ever Lived”

In the same interview, Moxley named who he believes to be the greatest professional wrestler that’s ever lived: Bryan Danielson.

The 37-year-old praised his fellow Blackpool Combat Club member for having an excellent mind for the industry and claimed he could have a great match with anyone at any place and any time.
