Jon Moxley is best known for his time with WWE, where he performed as Dean Ambrose from 2011 to 2019. He is also known for his work on the independent circuit as Jon Moxley between 2004 and 2011, and worked for various promotions including Full Impact Pro (FIP), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), and Dragon Gate USA (DGUSA), winning the FIP World Heavyweight Championship once and the CZW World Heavyweight Championship twice.
After weeks of New Japan Pro-Wrestling airing videos of a mystery man targeting Juice Robinson, Moxley was revealed as the culprit. AEW CEO Tony Khan stated that he will be able to take independent and international bookings during the summer before AEW's television deal starts in the fall.
Moxley made his New Japan Pro-Wrestling debut at the Best of the Super Juniors 26 Finals on June 5 where he defeated Robinson for the IWGP United States Championship. In a long interview with TMZ, Moxley spoke about how he’s feeling: “The last month or so, the last few weeks especially, have been really great just being a professional wrestler.
Just got back from Japan for two successful shows over there. I feel like I’m 18 again, right now. I’m just chomping at the bit to get in the ring. I’m like a little kid again. It could be all downhill. It could be a sharp decline, but I’m excited about the future.
I could wrestle until I’m 100. Stem cell research, you never know. I have a lot of fans around the world that have stuck with me through thick and thin. And now they are AEW fans. They might be WWE fans too. That’s cool. There’s enough room for everybody”.
