That’s one way to go. Over the last few weeks, the wrestling world has been talking about Jon Moxley. The former Dean Ambrose has left the WWE and the question now is where is he going from here. There is little doubt that he is going to be somewhere in the wrestling world again, but now it seems that he is going to be something outside of the ring, at least for the time being.
According to Deadline.com, Moxley will be appearing in an upcoming mixed martial arts themed movie called Cagefighter. The movie will focus on a mixed martial artist who loses a fight to a professional wrestler who is trying his hand at mixed martial arts and has to get his career back on track. There is no word on what role Moxley will play or when the movie will be released. Moxley previously appeared in two WWE Studios films.
Maybe they can be at the premiere. Check out the Shield saying goodbye to Ambrose last month:
Opinion: I’m not sure how well this is going to work but a lot of wrestlers have gotten into the low budget action movie field and things have worked out pretty well for them. I can’t imagine Moxley walking away from wrestling for good but it’s cool to see him getting to do some other things. If this is what he wants to do and someone is interested in hiring him, good for him.
