A few months ago Tony Khan announced that Jon Moxley would be stepping away from AEW so he could enter an alcohol treatment program, and the former AEW World Champion made his return during this week’s episode of Dynamite. Moxley cut a passionate promo, and fans on social media couldn’t stop commenting on how healthy he looked, but at least one WWE Hall of Famer thinks something was missing from the promo.
Bully Ray recently addressed the promo on Busted Open Radio, and he said that while he enjoyed the fact that the show opened up with Moxley’s return he would have liked for Mox to take more accountability.
They came out with a bang, people were ready for it and Moxley said what he needed to say. However, I would have liked to have heard just a little bit of accountability from Jon. I understand the whole demons thing and we always use the word demons as a creative word to get around the real issues.
“What about the fans that bought tickets to see AEW and Jon Moxley while Jon was away taking care of his problems? I’m very happy that he left and took care of his problem. And he looked incredibly healthy last night. And I love everything that he said. I just would have loved to have heard a little bit of accountability. I don’t know if I’m sorry is necessarily the right word but maybe endear yourself a little bit to the crowd if you felt you let them down. This is coming from me, the hard a*s of all hard a*ses. Personally, if it was me in the same situation, the first thing I would have said is ‘guys, I’m sorry if I let you down’…I think that would have been the proper thing to do.”
Bully Ray has been trending on Twitter due to his opinion, and Jon Moxley’s wife Renee Paquette made it clear that she thinks it’s a bad take.
Real bad take @bullyray5150 👎🏻

Former WWE Divas Champion Paige also entered the conversation when she told Bully Ray that everyone prefers to Devon to him, and that his comments were awful.
There’s a reason everyone prefers Devon. What an awful awful thing to say.
