Renee Paquette has discussed her new AEW role, commenting on the possibility of a future segment with Jon Moxley.
Ahead of the October 12 edition of Dynamite in Toronto, Canada, AEW announced that Paquette was All Elite. She made her first AEW appearance on that night’s show.
Paquette’s signing came after the announcement that her husband Jon Moxley had came to terms with AEW on a five year contract extension.
Speaking on The Sessions, Paquette discussed the possibility of her and Moxley sharing the screen on AEW TV, noting:
“We’ve never spoken about it, to be completely honest, it’s not something we’ve spoken about, but the way that I look at it and feel about it, at the risk of sounding super cheesy, he has built something so special and so authentic and great with what he does. He is in such a great groove. He’s the best.
“What he’s been able to do within his time in AEW, the stuff he does on the indies, the stuff he decides to do, he’s in this pocket and I never want to do anything to distract from that or get my own s**t in there with what he’s doing. I don’t want to be that person who is like, ‘Me too. Don’t forget about me. That’s my husband.’ I think that’s obnoxious as all hell.
“If there was a thing, of course I’m not going to pretend that I’m not married to the guy or act like I don’t know him. That’s dumb. In terms of positioning myself or making an awareness, ‘That’s my husband, there’s Jon Moxley’s wife.’ I don’t think anyone needs that. Jon has such a loner, lone wolf vibe about him, to be like, ‘the cheery happy girl is his wife,’ it’s a weird juxtaposition that I don’t know that works on camera.”
“We’ve been able to coexist in the wrestling world because…how annoying would it be, say we were doing a segment together and I mess something up or I missed my cue, anything like that. Then you have to talk about it. Us having our own separate roles, we never step on each other’s toes, we both have an immense amount of respect for what the other does.
“Those things don’t need to intertwine. It’s wrestling, if there is ever a moment that it does make sense and something like that does happen, cool. I’m not saying I’m against it, I just don’t think it’s something that ever needs to be forced or harped on.”
