Many in Anticipation for a Dream Match at AEW All Out
With All Elite Wrestling All Out being two weeks away, AEW fans have been eagerly waiting for the clash between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley. A dream match many are calling it. However, a lot of the steam for this match may be gone for a company that stresses “Wins and Losses Matter”.
In Case You Don’t Know What Happened at the G1…
Jon Moxley was off to a fantastic start. He started 5-0 and lead the B-Block with 4 matches to go. He pulled amazing wins against Tomohiro Ishii and Tetsuya Naito to put himself in a 4 point lead and basically banking on him making the finals. Except he didn’t. Not only did Moxley fail to reach the finals, but the former Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose failed to record another win for the remainder of the tournament. He was “Yano’ed” when Toru Yano tied Mox up to his Young Lion Shota Umino. Then he lost to the eventual B-Block winner Switchblade Jay White after some shenanigans and outside interference from Gedo. After that, he lost cleanly to Hirooki Goto, who he needed a win to stay alive in the tournament. Finally, he lost Juice Robinson; the man Moxley defeated to win the IWGP United States Championship at the Best of the Super Juniors final in June.
So how does this affect the AEW match with Kenny Omega?
AEW doesn’t start their weekly television for another month and a half. So, the builds to these matches are already hard enough to create. Basically, it relies on the “Road to All Out” Series on the All Elite Wrestling YouTube. However, the series is heavily focused on the match between Cody Rhodes and Shawn Spears. We’ve had one segment from Moxley and one from Omega.
Because of Moxley’s time in Japan, he did not appear at Fight for the Fallen. So, the last time we saw Moxley and Omega on an AEW show was Fyter Fest. So for a match on August 31st, their “go-home angle” as done over two months before.
Since then, Moxley went on a 4-match losing streak. He now back in the States doing shows this weekend for Northeast Wrestling. In his first match, he faces Kenny Omega’s All In opponent from last year, Pentagon, Jr. The following night, he faces CazXL in a rematch of a Northeast Wrestling match they had earlier this summer. All can be forgotten if news breaks and circulates that Moxley won both matches and somehow gets included in the “Road to All Out” Series.
You decide. Has the match been ruined?
