Stephanie McMahon believes Jon Moxley parted ways with WWE in what was a joint decision by the two parties.
Moxley bid adieu to WWE and his Dean Ambrose identity back in Stamford of April 2019 and although the Chief Branding Officer wasn’t specifically a part of the dialogue, she told Bill Simmons on his podcast that Mox’s exit was of shared mind. She also states that big decisions like that tend to be written down via contract, which didn’t always used to be the name of the game in the wrestling business.
“In his particular case, he was leaving anyway, and I do believe that was a mutual decision. Though, I wasn’t a part of those conversations. His case is a little bit different, but I remember back when it was WCW and the Monday Night Wars and our talent were getting stripped away and showing up on their show. I think it taught us a lot about business. Handshake deals don’t necessarily matter at the end of the day. You need to have contracts. You need to do business differently.”
