You may be frustrated with WWE, but listen to a guy who was just there to get an idea of how frustrating it must be inside the company. This is less an interview and more Moxley unburdening himself about reaching his breaking point over the last year. Absolutely worth 90 minutes of your day if you're interested in the decline of WWE.
Top Notch. I've never been a fan of Ambrose, or Moxley now. But listening to the reasons why WWE went out of their way to make this guy turn out as someone flat and bitter, makes more sense
Foley did the same thing in one of his books, on his way out to TNA. His issue was Vince in his good ear on commentary with the badmouth; Moxley is nuts about the whole environment in a way Foley never could, as Mick had a lot of leeway back then
I love the part where he goes into detail, "ok if that's what they want me to do, I'll put all my effort into", etc...not to far removed from Pillman claiming his goal was to be the highest paid jobber, ever ! I'll need to watch Moxley wrestle before I can pass judgment, as I think that's been his weakest point
A good place to start is NJPW vs. Juice Robinson, who is fantastic. Then FyterFest, he faces Janela (who also is awesome and I'll get to see that one up close) and then Pentagon Jr, who is off the charts. Good way to get acclimated, if Moxley would have faced Omega, first match, that might have not gone so well
I'm a sucker for a story about a guy not getting his (or Hers) just due, having their Testicular Fortitude questioned and then making a monkeys out of former employers. Kinda how the NWO started and the whole basis of AEW
Give this one a listen, it's priced perfectly, FREE. And if it's Free it's for ME
Also, I said this in passing yesterday
Production and Presentation. Again, AEW had it's issues, but Vince and Kevin Dunn have spent a lifetime perfecting this and we still get mistimed shows, long, long, long shows, production gaffs, and worst of all CUTS AND CUTS AND CUTS with the camera, specifically when Shane is throwing those lousy punches. Enough to drive one epileptic
Never stopped to think there night be some cat out there that is actually Epileptic; that has to suck. I don't blame you one bit if you quit WWE, for the reasons you mentioned
But don't quit watching wrestling - there's way to much good out there. A a matter of fact now I'm jealous you get the AEW's for almost lost a 70% discount from here. Someone needs to get me an IP UK address...I bet GURU knows how to do that

This was a super interesting podcast but I haaaaaate the way Jericho throws to ads. It's worse in episodes like the ones where he's talking to Meltzer about Owen or Benoit or whatever, where they're on some serious topic, and then it cuts to the obviously-edited-in bit about how "we're gonna talk about Chris Benoit murdering his wife and child in just a second here, but first let's talk supplements" or whatever the hell.
But again, that aside, this was such good shit, pal
The one thing I took away from the podcast interview was that you can hear how much different he was with Jericho than he was when he was on Austin's network show. You can tell he was really measured and had to edit himself. It also puts the Ambrose documentary on the network in a different light in hindsight. If you haven't seen either of these, I'd recommend watching both of those.

An all-time moment on a recent Jericho podcast was when Jericho set up the joke of the week call-in he does once a week, only the producer must've forgot to do it, so it cut right to Jericho talking about how hilarious the joke sounded on the headphones that sponsored the segment.
As dopey as Jericho's transitions are, the rock bottom are the ESPN podcasts where they refuse to do any transition at all (maybe to trick people from skipping) and the pre-taped ad suddenly just plays, often at a louder volume than the rest of the show.
Moxley has done more of these interviews with a website and PWTorch (part 1 and part 2. He ended one of these by saying he wants to focus on AEW going forward and not talk more about WWE, and I hope he gets to stick to that.

It seems like so many people listened to this and had never heard a podcast with ads in it before. Have ya'll never listened to WTF before?
I've listened to the vast majority of Jericho's episodes, though he has plenty of guests I've skipped, and I swear I can *never* understand what Duff's saying on the phone with his joke of the week.
