Earlier this year, Dean Ambrose sent shockwaves in the WWE news, when he announced his decision to end his eight-year stint with the WWE. According to WWE News, leaving the company seems to have done Jon Moxley f.k.a Dean Ambrose, a world of good. Ever since his departure from Vince McMahon’s company, Jon Moxley has joined the All Elite Wrestling, made a surprise but impactful debut at All or Nothing attacking Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho, defeated Juice Robinson to win the IWGP United States Championship in his first match for NJPW, and then getting the better of Shota Umino in the opening match of Dominion 6.9. He was seen most recently taking out Enzo Amore and Big Cass with a Dirty Deeds at New Jersey, wrestling for Northeast Wrestling. He also took on fellow AEW wrestler Darby Allin and was full of praise for his colleague, who despite losing to Jon Moxley proved himself quite a match despite having his hands tied to his back –
“I didn’t even know who this guy was before this week, but I’m telling you right now, you better be damn grateful that you got to be here tonight and witness Darby Allin. Sometimes, crazy equals money, and Darby Allin is going to be a big star real soon.”
Jon Moxley will be making his official in-ring debut for All Elite Wrestling at the AEW Fyter Fest on June 29, in Daytona Beach, Florida, where he will be taking on Joey Janela. However, his big match will be against Kenny Omega in the sold-out All Out pay-per-view on August 31 at Chicago, Illinois. Jon Moxley vs. Omega will feature as the co-main event of All Out, which will also feature Chris Jericho facing Adam “Hangman” Page. The buildup to the match had already begun at Double or Nothing where Jon Moxley attacked Omega following his defeat to Chris Jericho. Adding petrol to the fire is the fact that Jon Moxley recently became the IWGP United States Championship, and Kenny Omega, who is an NJPW legend, by the way, was the first-ever wrestler to win the title. Talking about New Japan Pro Wrestling, Jon Moxley made his intentions clear that he wanted to take part in G1 Climax tournament, and the NJPW duly obliged. He is going to take on the former IWGP Intercontinental Champion, Kota Ibushi. The 2019 G1 Climax will be the first in the series to be held outside of Japan, as the first night of the tournament will be held at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on July 6.
Jon Moxley’s deal with All Elite Wrestling allows him to pursue ventures outside of the company, and his exploits in NJPW, who also happen to be in partnership with the Khan family owned wrestling promotion, say that he is making the most of it.
