After securing the win against RUSH, Jon Moxley discussed the audience's reaction in a backstage interview. While many thought Moxley should fear his opponent, he didn't share that sentiment. Instead, he emphasized the match's difficulty “I had people acting all week like I was supposed to be scared of RUSH, supposed to be scared of this guy.

He’s a lot of bark, dudes have been barking at me my entire life and it never turns out that they have much bite. Was it a hard match? Yeah, hell yeah”. - Moxley said, as quoted by!

Jon Moxley on the match vs Swerve Strickland

Moxley also discussed his upcoming match against Swerve Strickland, recognizing it as a tough challenge.

But he's someone who enjoys these tough battles. He's expecting it to be one of his best matches yet, highlighting the importance of giving his all and putting on a show. Considering both wrestlers' reputations, it's set to be an amazing event.

“Will next week against Swerve be a hard match? Yeah, hell yeah. But as they say, it’s a shame for the helmsman to be surprised when the wind is unfavorable. This is the Continental Classic baby, it’s supposed to be hard.

Swerve Strickland’s got a lot of buzz… he’s cheap. Being at the top of this sport and staying there is another thing entirely and it’s very, very costly. For a guy like you in your position, it’s right about now when you realize that it’s a price you’re not willing to pay.

Are you going to be the guy who takes me out? Whatever will be, will be. Next week, Swerve Strickland, Jon Moxley, and the ghosts and demons that always chase me to the ring. This is gonna be something you’ve never attempted to do before, and it’s gonna be a long night, so I suggest you pack a lunch”.
