Jon Moxley Shocks The World At AEW Double or Nothing PPV
Jon Moxley made his “Electrifying” debut at AEW’s Double or Nothing pay per view as he viciously assaulted Kenny Omega; following his hard-hitting affair with Chris Jericho.
His return lit the world of professional wrestling on fire, and since he’s been one of the hottest topics on social media. Moxley made the sensible decision now to renew his WWE contract after an eight-year run with the company; he recently blasted WWE creative, and aired his grievances as a guest on Talk is Jericho.
Despite appearing at the conclusion of Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega at the event; Moxley hasn’t wrestled a match since April 21, 2019, at The Shield Final Chapter. He teamed up with former Shield-mates Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns to defeat Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Baron Corbin.
Moxley created even more buzz after the “Blockbuster” announcement that he would be working a similar schedule to (Jericho Former IWGP Intercontinental Champion and WWE veteran) and wrestle for New Japan Professional Wrestling.
For weeks an ominous “Time’s Up” video had been teasing a new opponent for Juice Robinson IWGP US Heavyweight Champion at Best of the Super Juniors finals on Wednesday, June 5.
On May 29, 2019, Moxley shared a new “Time’s Up” video on his Twitter account, confirmed he was the mystery opponent for Robinson on June 5th.
Moxley entered through the crowd (Resembling his Shield days in WWE), with some new methodical music that’s reminiscent to his brutal attacks. The Ambrose of old is dead and gone, as he ditched the jeans and now is sporting black biker shorts.
Moxley vs Robinson mimicked Kenny Omega vs. Jericho with him a much more ruthless aggressive style with devastating maneuvers; that could have saved his WWE career with Moxley’s heel turn at the end of 2018. Contrary to Jericho, Moxley ended Robinson’s 182 day-reign as US champion.
Robinson entered the room visibly pissed off as he said “everyone was right” referring to speculation that Moxley would be the one to topple him and take his championship.
Moxley on the other hand, was extremely grateful and humble for the opportunity to perform in NJPW, and the creative freedom to be who he was created to be. He was appreciative of sharing the ring with someone in the highest caliber of pro wrestling in Robinson.
The two opponents have known each other since they were kids and even worked under the same developmental territory together in Florida Championship Wrestling in 2011. Moxley said he made Robinson a target due to him being a terrific wrestler and a crowd favorite.
He’s aware that Robinson will be looking for retribution and coming back to claim the gold, and would be preparing tougher than ever for their rematch.”So bring it, motherf*cker, I’m gonna be training harder than ever. I’m gonna be ready for you.”
At AEW All-out on Saturday, August 31 Moxley the Brand-new IWGP US champion is bruited to clash with “The Cleaner” Omega, at the highly-anticipated event.
He now has the advantage over his foe, in being the only competitor with championship gold draped over his shoulder.
