Since leaving WWE in April 2019, Jon Moxley has enjoyed an enormous amount of success. He is a two-time IWGP United States Champion in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, having competed in widely praised matches against Lance Archer and Minoru Suzuki, among others. He also captured the AEW World Championship from Chris Jericho at Revolution and has embedded himself as one of the top stars in professional wrestling.
While Moxley has rejuvenated himself outside of WWE, he seemingly has no intentions of ever returning to the wrestling behemoth. During a recent interview on Wrestling Observer Live, The Maestro Of Mayhem was asked what he would do if he couldn't wrestle anymore. Moxley said he would like to work backstage as a producer or a coach and be involved in the "creative process," but he would not return to his former employers to do so, as he admitted he would rather work in McDonalds or "tar driveways in the summer heat" than work in WWE Creative. The AEW World Champion went on to describe being a producer in WWE as a "thankless" and frustrating job because Vince McMahon will write a script, throw it away, and then yell at you and treat you like an idiot.
Moxley said: "If I couldn't wrestle right now, I think I'd maybe have a shot to be like a producer, a coach, or a trainer, something like that. Be involved in some way which I would never say, I would never be a producer in WWE. I would rather work in McDonalds than be a producer in WWE. You talk about a thankless job…Or be on the creative team at WWE, I would rather like, tar driveways in the summer heat than be a creative member of the creative team in WWE. What a terrible job. Sitting around waiting for Vince to write a show and then he crumbles up the show and throws it out. You get yelled at and treated like an idiot. I can't imagine how frustrating that job would be. But, outside of WWE in the world, I would love to be part of the creative process after I couldn't wrestle anymore."
