A Jon Moxley Wrestlemania return was spoken about a lot during Wrestlemania 38. The former AEW Champion watched on as Cody Rhodes returned to WWE, although discussion about a Jon Moxley WWE return has continued as reports of Jon Moxley’s AEW Contract ending this month are rife.
Jon Moxley made his debut for AEW nearly three years, at AEW Double or Nothing 2019. At the show, he attacked Kenny Omega after the main event, laying him out with a Paradigm Shift and announcing himself as Jon Moxley (as opposed to Dean Ambrose in WWE) on the biggest stage.
We know, thanks to his interview on Chris Jericho’s Talk is Jericho that the former AEW Champion’s WWE deal ended on April 30th 2019. This means that, at the earliest and presuming he signed a three year deal with AEW, that his current AEW deal comes to an end on April 30th, 2022.
Jon Moxley Wrestlemania return
However, while fans do want to see a Jon Moxley Wrestlemania return, they may be disappointed. In his new book, titled simply Mox, the former Shield member spoke about a potential future Wrestlemania appearance for Jon Moxley. Moxley wrote that the appearance seemed unlikely and he wont have another Wrestlemania match in his career.
“While things seem to be turning a corner as far as COVID is concerned, we’re still a ways from back to normal. It wasn’t even hard to book a hotel in Tampa; normally the whole city is sold out during Mania week.
I’ll probably never perform at WrestleMania itself again. If I did, you would know I got paid an absolutely astronomical amount of money and been granted unprecedented creative control. There’s really no need to.” – SOURCE
With Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns two of the biggest stars in WWE, it seems a shame that we will never see another reunion of The Shield inside a WWE ring. However, if that means we get to enjoy even more of Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, William Regal and Wheeler Yuta as the Blackpool Combat Club, then so be it.
