Jon Moxley recently released his autobiography titled MOX
On November 2nd, John Moxley’s autobiography titled “MOX” was released. In the book Moxley has made some interesting revelations about his time with WWE. He mentioned that he was often asked by WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon to “tone it down”. Moxley went on to mention that this instruction from McMahon often made him self-conscious.
“The response from the crowd to all of it was great. I had been hitting on all cylinders that evening. The note I got from Vince: ‘Tone it down.’ The next night I went out and had basically the same match in Richmond, except this time I felt strangely self-conscious. It was not as good. I didn’t really do anything different, but I felt like I was wrestling in f***ing bowling shoes with ‘tone it down’ ever present in my mind,” mentioned Moxley in his book.
As the professional wrestler enters the inpatient alcohol treatment program, we wish the very best for Moxley, his family and friends.
