AEW superstar Jon Moxley recently hosted a special edition of Renee Paquettes Oral Sessions podcast where the violence producer talked about writing his new book and how it compares to written promotions in WWE or certain matchups. Highlights from the interview are below.
Says WWE promotions suck because writers manage too many words and don’t get to the point:
“That’s why WWE campaigns shit sucks because they’m stuck in 5,000 fucking words in there that’s not necessary. Say what you want to say, mean what you want to say, get your point across. ‘I want to hit your ass Saturday night because I do not like you,’ boom, done. Sometimes in a fight it’s like, okay, we planned all these fucking spots, but what’s this story? What are we trying to do? You’re the good guy, you’re the bad guy. You are big, you are small, you are tall, you are short. Regardless of the contrast between styles or the story we tell, why do we have all this? Sometimes you just look at it and go, you know what? We do not need all that extra shit.
By leaving certain things out of his book because it does not serve the purpose of the book:
“I probably spilled like a month on a lot of shit that I just went with,” I do not need this. This is just – I do not even know why I put this in here. It snorts the current, ‘and just, I do not know. I just shitcanned it all and wasted a month working. Because I was like, it does not serve the purpose of the book, and I almost looked at it like an album, like you have an opening track, and you go up, and you go down, and you have like a ballad, and then you come up again or whatever, you know, and you’re close. So when I started to get some kind of feel for what I wanted, it was really easy to just shitcan stuff. Not because there was nothing to hide or leave. If I omit it, it’s because it just does not fit. ”
