Jon Moxley Talks The Amount Of Pain He Has Been Through

AEW World Champion Jon Moxley was recently a guest on the Dan Le Batard Show, where he had a conversation with the host on a number of topics, which includes pro wrestling being the most physical sport in the world.

Moxley said that it’s one of the hardest things to master on the intellectual side and the physical side. Moxley also said that it takes a toll on your body, but is in a pretty good place physically right now.

This is what Jon Moxley said:

“Pro wrestling is the most physical sport in the world.” “A lot athletes, football players and people from other sports, think ‘I can just walk right in there and do that. It’s not a real competition. Anybody can do that right?’ That’s not the case at all. It’s one of the hardest things to master on the intellectual side and the physical side.”

“I’ve been through everything. It’s not just getting slammed on thumbtacks and barb wire, getting thrown off cages, getting set on fire and all that – that’s the easy part. Just the years and years of being on the road and being on tour for 250 days a year, night in and night out getting slammed and working through injuries. It takes a toll on your body, but I’m in a pretty good place physically right now.”

Moxley then talked about surgeries and hospitals not being fun and the staph infection he suffered at one point in his career that caused him a lot of pain at the time.

This is what Jon Moxley said:

“That’s not fun. Surgeries and hospitals are not fun.” “I’ve been pretty lucky. I’ve only had one issue that required surgery and it required three of them because it was a tricep repair, then they go back in for a staph infection, and then back in again over a year later to get rid of the rest of the Staph infection. So it was really only one issue, but I’ve been pretty lucky overall.”

“People are like, ‘How do you feel today?’ My baseline is that I feel like crap. I’m just so used to being in pain. It’s a pretty chill morning here, I can barely move at this point. I like to train early in the morning. If I train at 9 a.m., I have to get up at 7 a.m. because it’s gonna take me that long to loosen my body up and warm up.”

Moxley then talked about the new generation of wrestlers learning from the mistakes of the past generation when it comes to addiction to pain medication and the new generation being a young and healthy generation.

This is what Jon Moxley said:

“Luckily our generation now has kind of left that for the generation past us.” “We learned from the mistakes of the past generation. You won’t really see a lot of that anymore. We got a really young, healthy generation.”
