Jon Moxley Hasn’t Watched Back His Match With Hiroshi Tanahashi At Forbidden Door

Jon Moxley hasn’t watched back his world title match vs Hiroshi Tanahashi back at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.

Moxley is currently involved in a storyline where The Blackpool Combat Club are running roughshod throughout the AEW roster, mainly targeting The Elite. However, a year ago, the faction were babyface and only beginning to find their feet as a team.

In an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Moxley looked back on the pay-per-view and noted that he never watched his match with Tanahashi.

“I’ve never watched it, and I never will. It’s one of those things that was so perfect in the moment. I was supposed to wrestle Tanahashi many times, and it kept getting fucked up for one reason or another. The relationship [between NJPW and AEW] wasn’t necessarily the best before, and I was in the middle of that. Then a couple years later, we’re doing a pay-per-view together, I’m in the main event, and it’s against Tanahashi, which was the last big dream I wanted. There were a lot of people who did a lot to bring that together, but I feel like I was the goddamn linchpin of the whole fucking thing,”

“It was magical. The match was so fucking perfect. It was exactly how I envisioned it. I was in such a fucking zone. Every single second of it was exactly how I played it out in my head. If I ever watch it back, I’ll pick apart little things because I’m my own worst critic. So that’s why I won’t. It was fucking perfect,”
