Jon Moxley Claims Bryan Danielson Regrets Releasing Autobiography With WWE – eWrestlingNews.com

Jon Moxley went on Talk Is Jericho to discuss his new MOX book with Chris Jericho. 

During it, he recalled how WWE wanted him to write a book, but it was Bryan Danielson, who convinced him to not do it at the time because of his own experience. 

“I didn’t even come up with the idea. That’s how a lot of stuff is with me,” Moxley pointed out. “Anytime I’ve done a movie, it’s not like, ‘Oh, I want to go be an actor.’ No, somebody just said, ‘Hey, you want to do a movie?’ And I said, ‘Sure. Okay.’ All I ever wanted to be was a wrestler. That’s all I really want to be. That’s all I really care about, but other stuff comes to you and you go, ‘Hey, I’ll I’ll try it out.’ So it was this chick, Amanda — damn you, Amanda, for doing this to me. She’s from the publishing company.

“It’s a small publishing company, and I wanted to go with a small publishing company if I was going to do it because I wanted to have full control. I don’t want a big corporate thing. I don’t want to fight with anybody. The whole thing feels like a very DIY project. I found my own photographer, I wrote every single word of this myself. This is the least edited book of all time. Actually, they wanted me to write a book in WWE. They asked me to, like one of their WWE books, and I was like, ‘Ah, I don’t know, man. I’m not a former president or anything, man. Nobody needs to hear my story. I’m not that interesting,’ and they put a bunch of money on the table. 

“And I was like, ‘Ah, maybe,’ so they talked to me with this ghostwriter guy. I didn’t know how the process worked. I was like, ‘I don’t have time to write a book. I’m on the road 300 days a year.’ So the guy talks to me, he’s like, ‘Yeah, basically, I’ll just ride around with you and follow you, and you just tell me stories and I’ll put them into words.’ And it made me so uncomfortable, and I was like, ‘I don’t know, man. If I was going to tell my story, I would tell it my way,’ but I kind of felt some pressure.

“And then I remember I actually asked Bryan Danielson, who’d written a WWE book, which was good, I thought. And I was like, ‘Yo, if you could go back in time, would you do that book?’ And he said no instantly. He’s like, ‘It wasn’t exactly how I wanted it to be,’ and I was like, that’s all I needed to hear. That’s what my instinct was telling me, so I told them no, and they’re like, ‘Really?’ And it was a lot of money on the table, but I was just like, ‘No, it makes me feel really uncomfortable. I don’t want to do it, so I’m not doing it.’ And that was it.”
