Jon Moxley opens on his future in the ring

Mox was the first guest on his wife, Renee Paquette’s all-new Oral Sessions Podcast, where he spoke about his professional wrestling future.

“It’s the life we live, and it’s part of the job or whatever. If I just kept on doing that at the same pace, I wouldn’t have lasted long. I can feel my physical window. Not that it’s closing, but I can feel the distance now,” said the AEW World Champion. “I’m not gonna say I can feel it closing but I’m aware of it now and I wanna keep it open and extend and I wanna be able to wrestle as long as I possibly can,” he continued.

Moxley also opened up on wanting his kids to see him wrestle.

He said, “I would like to be 50 and wrestle. If we had kids, I would like them to be able and come see me wrestle and I like to do physical stuff. So, over the next year or two, I’ll make a — I’ll just kind of see where I’m at physically and make a decision. This whole pandemic situation really changed the year and made it a lot less busy for me.”

He continued, ”But also, I’ve been having super physical matches and [I’ve] been going back and forth to Jacksonville, which is a bitch. Jacksonville’s a great town, Daily’s Place is a great venue, it’s perfect for what we’re doing and I’m glad that we have it.’

“It’s a blessing that we have such a great venue to run safely in, but getting to Jacksonville to Vegas and back and back and forth is a bitch. Like the west coast guys are like, ‘Aw man, this is a bitch’ because it’s a full day of travel.” concluded Moxley. H/t Post Wrestling

Jon Moxley mentioned he wants to be 50 and wrestling. It’s safe to safe he isn’t going anywhere for the next decade. There is still a lot more violence to inflict for Jon Moxley.

The ‘Deathrider’ will face the ‘Best Bout Machine’ Kenny Omega next week for the AEW World Championship. The match will surely be a banger. The last time these two men met, Mox walked out as the victor.
