As the AEW Continental Classic edges toward its climactic finale, wrestling enthusiasts are on the edge of their seats, anticipating the historic crowning of the inaugural AEW Triple Crown Champion. This monumental event, set to redefine professional wrestling, has reached a fever pitch following the recent high-octane matches that have left fans spellbound.
Jon Moxley, a name synonymous with relentless determination, emerged victorious in the Continental Classic's Gold League this Wednesday. In a spectacular showdown, Moxley faced off against formidable opponents Jay White and Swerve Strickland.
The climax came when Moxley executed a stunning Death Rider on White, securing his victory and a place in wrestling history. Moxley's technical prowess and raw power were on full display, captivating the audience and setting a new benchmark in the league.
Kingston Conquers Blue League
On the other side of the bracket, Eddie Kingston, Moxley's long-standing friend and adversary, triumphed in the Blue League. In what can only be described as a blistering and intense contest, Kingston bested Bryan Danielson, Moxley's comrade from the Blackpool Combat Club and a former WWE Champion.
Kingston's victory was sealed with a Toshiaki Kawada-style Powerbomb, a move that echoed through the arena and resonated with the fans. The post-match scenario further escalated the drama. Kingston and Moxley, standing face-to-face, exchanged heated words.
Kingston, with a fire in his eyes, declared Moxley a fool for inspiring him to continue wrestling, vowing to make a spectacle by defeating Moxley at the upcoming AEW Worlds End. This match is not just about personal vendettas; it's a battle for prestigious titles.
The victor will claim the ROH World Championship, the NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship, and the newly-christened AEW Continental Championship, collectively forming the coveted AEW Triple Crown. Reflecting on their storied rivalry, it's impossible to forget their last one-on-one encounter.
At AEW Full Gear in 2020, in an unforgettable "I Quit" Match, Moxley forced Kingston to utter those climactic words, subduing him with a barbed wire chokehold. Their most recent confrontation occurred at AEW All In in London, where Kingston teamed with Penta El Zero Miedo and The Best Friends, clashing against The Blackpool Combat Club, Santana, and Ortiz in a brutally intense Stadium Stampede Match.
As Saturday's showdown at AEW Worlds End approaches, the wrestling world is abuzz with anticipation. Will Kingston exact his revenge, or will Moxley continue his reign of dominance? This epic battle, ripe with history, skill, and raw emotion, is set to be a cornerstone in AEW's legacy and a defining moment in professional wrestling.
