AEW rocked the wrestling world with a surprise appearance by international wrestling star Jon Moxley to close out DOUBLE OR NOTHING in Las Vegas on May 25. That same day, AEW signed Moxley to a full-time, multi-year agreement.
Tony Khan stated: “The arrival of Jon Moxley at DOUBLE OR NOTHING was the perfect ending to one of the most important nights in wrestling history. There was no better way to conclude an evening of new beginnings than with the introduction of the best free agent wrestler in the world. The chaotic scene that unfolded in the closing moments was emblematic of the unpredictability and explosiveness that Jon Moxley will bring to AEW.”
Moxley, who has held many titles across pro wrestling organizations and was twice voted as Most Popular Wrestler of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, made his official in-ring debut at FYTER FEST on June 29 where he defeated Joey Janela in a violent, non-sanctioned match.
