Moxley found refuge in professional wrestling, instantly becoming hooked on it upon discovery. He would come to collect many wrestling videotapes, some of which he rented, and others he admits to outright stealing. But Moxley wouldn't be deterred by piddling matters like the law - he had a hobby, one that gave him hope. Mox's love of wrestling wasn't centred on one particular wrestler or promotion, though he admits that one wrestler stood out to him, becoming his idol.

In a 2010 interview with SLAM! Sports, Jon admits to looking up to Bret "The Hitman" Hart, admiring the way in which Hart persevered in spite of any and all odds that he faced. Though he didn't make the connection at the time, Moxley would realize the connection he felt with Hart was because of his own struggles to overcome difficulties, though his hindrances were not musclebound opponents between the ropes - they were the struggles of his surroundings. Hart, among others, would only magnetize Moxley deeper into the realm of wrestling.
