AEW star Jon Moxley has proven himself capable of going head-to-head with some of the best WWE Superstars in history. A few of them even failed to pin him.

Before he became one of the top stars of All Elite Wrestling, Moxley (FKA Dean Ambrose) was a successful WWE Superstar. He spent nearly eight years in Vince McMahon's company, in which he won many titles. Before he left in 2019, he became a Grand Slam and Triple Crown Champion.

Although some superstars held official victories over Moxley in tag team matches, the 35-year-old was never the one with his shoulders on the mat when the referee counted to three.

Here are five WWE Superstars who have never pinned AEW Star, Jon Moxley.

#5. WWE Superstar Jeff Hardy

Although he is still an active competitor on Monday Night RAW, Jeff Hardy is considered a WWE legend. Like Jon Moxley, The Charismatic Enigma is a Grand Slam and Triple Crown Champion.

Hardy and Moxley fought side by side twice in 2017. The same year, they also faced each other as Moxley teamed up with his fellow member of The Shield, Seth Rollins, to take on The Hardy Boyz.

Alongside his brother Matt, Jeff Hardy lost against Moxley and Rollins. Following a Dirty Deeds from Moxley, Rollins pinned The Charismatic Enigma for the win.

Aside from the 2019 Royal Rumble match, Jeff Hardy never competed against Moxley again. Being on different promotions now, the younger Hardy does not have a chance to face and pin Moxley. However, his brother, Matt, does have this chance.

Like his brother, Matt Hardy never pinned Moxley. Nonetheless, The Broken One joined AEW last year. Although they are yet to cross paths in AEW, a square-off between the older Hardy and Moxley could happen at any time.

#4. WWE Superstar Jinder Mahal

Jinder Mahal could not score a pinfall over Jon Moxley despite battling him several times in WWE.

Most of Mahal and Moxley's matches were tag team ones, in which the latter was always on the victorious side. However, the two went head-to-head once nearly three years ago.

Moxley and Jinder Mahal went one-on-one on the August 27 episode of Monday Night RAW in 2018. Although The Modern Day Maharaja gave in a big fight, The Lunatic Fringe successfully hit the Dirty Deeds to end the match in his favor.


Following that match, the two former WWE Champions never shared the ring again. While Moxley left WWE to join AEW in 2019, Mahal suffered a few injuries that took him out of action for several months.

The Modern Day Maharaja recently returned to WWE to feud with his former friend and 3MB teammate Drew McIntyre. The rivalry between Mahal and The Scottish Warrior came to a head at the 2021 SummerSlam. Mahal suffered a painful defeat against McIntyre.

Last Monday, Jinder Mahal suffered another defeat against Mansoor. The former WWE champion was disqualified after refusing to stop stomping his opponent down in the corner.

#3. WWE Superstar Sami Zayn

WWE Superstar Sami Zayn has a lot of history with Jon Moxley. While Moxley wrestled in WWE, the two teamed up and faced each other many times.

In October 2013, they, alongside Bo Dallas, fought against each other for the WWE United States Championship in a Triple-Threat match. Moxley walked out with the title that night.

The two WWE Superstars were also involved in another Triple-Threat match in March 2016. They fought Kevin Owens for the Intercontinental Title, but both came up short.


Later that year, they fought for the Intercontinental Championship again. This time, it was a Fatal Four-Way match that involved The Miz and Dolph Ziggler. Both Moxley and Zayn failed to capture the title as Miz walked out victorious.

In June 2016, Moxley, Zayn, and Owens squared off in three consecutive Triple-Threats at live WWE shows. Moxley won them all.

Later that month, the same three wrestlers battled again for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the SummerSlam Heatwave Tour. Moxley also scored a victory to retain the title.

After that match, Moxley and Zayn shared the ring a few times as partners. They never faced each other again. The Underdog from the Underground never pinned Moxley.

#2. WWE Superstar R-Truth

WWE Superstar R-Truth also has a long history with Jon Moxley. They battled many times over a four-year duration.

The two wrestlers first squared off four consecutive times at WWE live shows in May 2013. All four matches ended with R-Truth's defeat. However, they went head-to-head again later that month on Monday Night RAW for the United States Championship, which Moxley held. Again, R-Truth suffered a loss.

Throughout the rest of 2013, Moxley and Truth went one-on-one several times on live shows, with the former WWE Champion always coming on top.

In 2015, Moxley and R-Truth faced Bad News Barrett in two consecutive Triple-Threat matches at live shows on the road to WrestleMania. Barrett won both matches. Moxley also scored another pinfall victory over R-Truth during a Gauntlet match on SmackDown in March 2015.


Following that match, The 52-time 24/7 Champion and the former WWE Champion faced each other in a ladder match, Royal Rumble match, and two Battle Royals. None of these matches could have been won by pinfalls. That left R-Truth with no pinfall victories ever over Jon Moxley.

#1. WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio

WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio is a legend in the wrestling industry. However, he never pinned Jon Moxley in a WWE ring.

The two superstars first squared off in a six-man tag team match. Mysterio teamed up with The Usos to fight The Shield on SmackDown in November 2013. Although Mysterio secured the victory for his team, he pinned Seth Rollins, not Moxley.

Later that year, Moxley and Mysterio were opponents in three other tag team matches. Moxley was on the winning side of two of them. Nonetheless, he lost the third in which he teamed up with his Shield teammates and The Wyatt Family to face Cody Rhodes, Goldust, CM Punk, The Usos, and Mysterio. Punk picked up the victory for his team after pinning Erick Rowan.

In January 2014, Mysterio teamed up with Daniel Bryan and Sheamus to face The Shield on SmackDown. Moxley and his teammates emerged victorious. A month later, The Master of the 619 teamed up with Big E and Kofi Kingston against The Shield once more. Again, Mysterio was on the losing side.


Despite facing each other in several tag team matches, Rey Mysterio never pinned the current AEW Star.
