Jon Moxley has had a wild career full of times where he has become a peer to his childhood heroes. However, he won’t take responsibility for Ric Flair being arrested at 2 A.M.. in an airport, even if “The Nature Boy” tried to pin it on him.
Speaking with Metro in the UK, Moxley recalled this fun story.
“Getting drunk with Ric Flair, he gets arrested at the airport and he’s walking around telling people I got him arrested at the airport. I’m like, ‘OK Ric! I wasn’t twisting your arm to order double Bloody Marys at 2.30 in the morning”. I’m like, “I’m hanging out with Ric Flair, this is crazy, what kind of life am I living?!’
“I’ve been very blessed to transport myself into the universe that I watched and wondered over as a kid. Sometimes I have to be like, “what the hell is going on? How did this become my life?” But it’s pretty cool!’
Even working now with names such as Jim Ross and Sting, Moxley chalks all of it up to the blessings of wrestling and working his ass off.
“I’ve had a lot of blessings that have come from this business and what it’s provided me,” he admitted. But really, the thing that keeps driving me – that feeling of the end of the night when you’re bleeding and sweating, coughing up bile, your teeth are loose, but you feel like a million dollars because you really gave everything you had and left it all in the ring.”
