What's the story?

In a recent interview with GameSpot, All Elite Wrestling superstar Kenny Omega talked about facing AEW's newest signee Jon Moxley at the upcoming AEW All Out pay-per-view, how WWE apparently misused Moxley's speciality and more.

In case you didn't know...

At AEW's debut show Double or Nothing, former WWE Superstar Jon Moxley fka Dean Ambrose shocked the Pro Wrestling world when he made his first appearance since his WWE departure.

Upon his debut for AEW, Moxley brutally assaulted Chris Jericho and also put a beating on former IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Kenny Omega.

Moxley then made his shocking debut for New Japan Pro Wrestling and in his first match for the promotion, the former WWE Champion won the IWGP US Championship.

The current and new IWGP US Champion recently also made his return to the Independent Circuit and in his first match back, Moxley defeated another fellow AEW star in the form of Darby Allin in Northeast Wrestling.

The heart of the matter

While interacting with GameSpot at the recent E3 Gaming Convention, Kenny Omega opened up on his thoughts regarding the new and current IWGP US Champion, Jon Moxley.

According to Omega, he felt that there was always something special about the former Dean Ambrose, however, WWE seemingly failed to showcase Moxley's speciality during his time with the company. (H/T: Wrestling Inc)

"Yeah, it's crazy because I remember seeing him on TV. I saw something there. I knew that there was something magnetic about him, something special about him. WWE never showed it. 

Continuing on the topic, the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion added that Moxley has certainly evolved a lot since his WWE departure and there is definitely a sense of enthusiasm and spark within him now.

"And then when I see him nowadays, when I see these backstage promos, when I see the stuff that he's done in Japan, when I see the stuff that he's doing around the world, I see this new enthusiasm. I see the spark. I even see the physical condition that he's in. It's unlike anything I've ever seen. This is not the Moxley that came from that other place. This is a Jon Moxley that's reborn."

What's next?

Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega will lock horns for the very first time later this year at All Out in the Sears Center Arena. Also Jon Moxely will be seen in AEW Fyter Fest.

AEW will be returning to Illinois on the 31st of August and on the same show, the first ever AEW World Champion will also be crowned.
