Jon Moxley is all set for a new beginning in All Elite Wrestling. It hasn't been long since he was just one of several disgruntled Superstars in WWE, who were unhappy with their positions on the roster. With his heel turn bombing gloriously, the future was looking bleak for Jon Moxley.

Suddenly, he made waves when it was announced that he had requested his release from WWE. The speculation mill began spinning rapidly, with fans wondering whether All Elite Wrestling's arrival on the professional wrestling scene had anything to do with Moxley's decision to quit.

Last weekend, Moxley appeared at Double Or Nothing and proceeded to attack Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega. The thunderous debut sent the fans in a frenzy. Days after his debut, Moxley appeared on Chris Jericho's "Talk is Jericho" podcast.

The interview soon became the most listened edition in TIJ history. Moxley spilled the beans on what led to his exit from WWE. Let's take a look at 5 incidents that made Moxley move on to look for greener pastures and how WWE could've avoided them.

One backstage incident saw Ambrose send a promo back to Vince, after changing it completely. McMahon proceeded to write the promo again and add everything Ambrose had just removed. He then told Ambrose that the promo was good and it suited his character.

Dictating promos to Superstars has been a major issue in WWE since a while now. The situation could have been avoided by simply letting Ambrose do his thing without giving him back the same promo that he originally didn't want to do. He has proved time and again that he can work a mic, and giving him a chance to do his shtick instead of giving him the same thing he had just rejected, was a bad decision.
