#5 Moxley was miserable in his final days in WWE
Jon Moxley needs to be praised by the wrestling community for being a total pro when it came to going through his final days in WWE. When he requested his release from the company, WWE publicized it heavily and we saw a string of "final Shield reunions", with the actual final one taking place at The Shield's Final Chapter.
Nevertheless, Moxley wasn't happy at all with how his star came to a standstill in WWE. He was already upset with how his heel turn had been handled. Further, he was put into a segment with Nia Jax, with Nia putting him down in the end. Nothing came out of it as we moved ahead. Moxley wasn't featured on the WrestleMania card either. When Moxley said that he is breathing fresh air for the first time in a long while, he was actually referring to the fact that he was in a sorry state during the final months of his WWE run.
