WWE‘s creative process is often described as a nightmare by the former WWE Stars. The latest example of it was Jon Moxley saying that he felt like Mr McMahon was in the ring with him while performing matches.
He discussed his Double Or Nothing match with Cody and comparing the creative process of it to WWE; he claimed that there weren’t 30 writers who were scared to death to a man:
“There weren’t 30 writers for this match, people who are just a bunch of ‘yes men’ scared to death of a man. There was a small group, and that’s all you need to create a magical environment. That environment was such a difference from where I came from, and it was a pleasure to be around them.”
Continuing on the topic, Rhodes also discussed how working on TV is different than Live Events and hoped that the new talents on AEW roster will learn this quickly.
