Renee Paquette Reveals Book Written By Jon Moxley Currently in Development
A recent episode of the Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette podcast had AEW CEO Tony Khan as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Paquette revealing that her husband Jon Moxley is currently writing a book.
“He’s working off of my laptop and my email is set up on there, so anytime he sends it to himself, it’s sent through my email. So he’s like, ‘check it, read it.’ I’ve read it all and I had no doubt. I’ve been up his ass forever like, ‘Dude, you need to write a book.’ He can be a very eloquent speaker and his memory is so amazing. The stuff he’s able to draw from. The fact that he’s doing it now and writing it himself, I think it’s gonna be such a badass product.”
Khan also revealed that he has read some of the book that has been written by Moxley.
“I’ve read some of the book he’s writing. It’s awesome … I’m so excited about it and it’s going to be so cool. The best part about reading it is you can tell he’s writing it himself. It’s literally like reading him talking, which is the best.”
