WWE talent can’t wait to leave the company following Jon Moxley’s interview

Moxley, formerly known as Dean Ambrose, launched a scathing attack on Vince McMahon and WWE on Chris Jericho’s Talk is Jericho podcast.

The former WWE world champion left the company in April and appeared at All Elite Wrestling’s first pay-per-view Double or Nothing last weekend.

Moxley’s interview was well received by the wrestling community, with Jericho claiming other superstars are desperate to leave WWE.

He told ESPN: “I have heard from a lot of people who are working there saying, ‘I can’t wait to do my version in X amount of months.'”

Sasha Banks to return to WWE this summer

Banks has not been seen on WWE TV since losing the Women’s Tag Team Championships to the IIconics at WrestleMania 35 on April 7.

Amid creative and booking frustrations, The Boss reportedly tried to quit the company shortly after The Show of Shows.

The Wrestling Observer say a positive meeting recently took place between Banks and McMahon – and she could return to the company during the summer months.

A feud with either champion Becky Lynch or Bayley would certainly get fans invested.

The Authors of Pain (AOP) were a dominant force on Raw after being called up to the main roster last April.

They won the Raw Tag Team Championships in November, but an injury to Akam took the team off TV in January.

But PW Insider report that AOP are scheduled for a return next month and will be competing on SmackDown Live.
