Before leaving WWE, Dean Ambrose was one of the most impressive characters in the WWE roster. Born on December 7, 1985, Jonathan David Good was passionate about wrestling from a very young age.

Good began working for Les Thatcher in the Heartland Wrestling Association (HWA) promotion as a teenager by selling popcorn and setting up the ring. He began training at the age of 18 as a professional wrestler under Thatcher and Cody Hawk. Using the ring name Jon Moxley, he made his debut in June 2004, losing his debut match to Ala Hussein.

The eighth Grand Slam Champion did wonders for whichever brand he had been on and became a solo headliner even after gaining popularity through The Shield. Since then, Moxley has made a huge name for himself in WWE and has left the promotion to move on to other promotions such as All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).

Let’s take a look at four lesser-known facts about the man who walked out of WWE and stood up for what he thought was moral and immoral.

#4 He leads a private life

Being in the entertainment business requires professionals to put everything on the line. This includes their name, reputation, time, and also their private lives. However, Moxley has been very successful in staying mum about his private life as far as possible. He is usually private and does not reveal much about his personal life in interviews, on social media, or to the fans.

During his time in WWE, he even managed to keep his relationship with Renee Young undercover for a while and the news about their marriage did not spread until two weeks after they got hitched. While almost every Superstar from WWE, AEW, and other wrestling promotions are active on social media to either spread news or interact with fans, Moxley has managed to stay away from that sickness.

"I don't feel the need to open myself up to the opinion of everybody in the world with a phone or computer. I just don't get being connected to everybody on such a superficial level like that. It's not really for me." Moxley has revealed.

His official Twitter account had no activity whatsoever except a single retweet from 2012. His Twitter biography read, "They made me get a twitter.....Fine...Enjoy", possibly signaling towards the WWE asking him to connect with fans over social media.
