AEW World Champion Jon Moxley was recently interviewed by Fightful on a number of topics, including his Double Or Nothing ring attire being inspired by WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart and putting an extra effort into the company’s PPV Events.
Below are the highlights from the interview:
On his Double Or Nothing ring attire being inspired by WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart:
“Everybody’s looking to steal the show every night. AEW pay-per-views are can’t miss and we have to keep it this way. Every AEW pay-per-view is like a WrestleMania feel in the back like this is it, this is game time. You bring out that little bit extra, some new gear. I’m trying to get new gear, but this pandemic is messing with the shipping and so the new pants didn’t come. My sick Bret Hart jacket, I tried to find those epaulet things, but I couldn’t get those. The dude here, Charlie, he made barbed wire epaulets, so I had kind of a Bret Hart-themed, barbed wire-y themed sick jacket that was way too heavy and way too hot so I had it on for about 30 seconds. I hope people enjoyed that.”
On putting an extra effort into the company’s PPV Events:
“You definitely put in a little extra effort when you know you’re on pay-per-view and we’re trying to gain and maintain the good will of the fans. If we’re going to ask to pay money, then they know they’re getting an incredible show.”
