Stephanie McMahon Addresses Wrestlers Jumping-Ship From WWE To AEW, Talks Jon Moxley’s Departure

As noted, Stephanie McMahon recently appeared as a guest on The Bill Simmons podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

In addition to the highlights we previously posted from the appearance, the longtime WWE executive and on-air performer spoke about Jon Moxley’s departure from the company, as well as how they have learned a lot about talent jumping-ship since the WCW days.

Featured below are some more highlights from the interview.

On how it was a mutual decision to let Jon Moxley go: “In his particular case, he was leaving anyway. I do believe that was a mutual decision, though I wasn’t part of those conversations. His case is a little different.”

On WWE learning a lot since the WCW days when talent would jump-ship: “I remember back when it was WCW and our talent were getting stripped away and showing up on their show. It taught us a lot about business. Handshake deals don’t necessarily matter at the end of the day. You need to have contracts and do business differently. That was key learning at that time. From this time, we’ll see where it all shakes out. We’re constantly talking about how we can be better and what we can do better. We always want to be the best company we can be for our fans, shareholders, employees, and talent. We want to be the best.”
