Jon Moxley, fresh from his monumental win at NJPW's Windy City Riot, stormed back into the AEW spotlight on the April 17th edition of Dynamite, proudly brandishing the IWGP World Heavyweight Title. His victory over Tetsuya Naito not only adds another feather to his cap but also marks him as the first wrestler to clinch world championships in WWE, AEW, and NJPW.

Opening Dynamite with fervor, Moxley reflected on his climb to the pinnacle of professional wrestling and the storied legacy of the championship now draped over his shoulder. His address swiftly turned confrontational as he set his sights on the Don Callis Family, signaling a brewing storm in AEW's dynamic wrestling landscape.

The action intensified when Jon Moxley issued a bold challenge to Powerhouse Hobbs for a showdown on the upcoming April 24th edition of Dynamite. The stakes for this encounter were escalated on the April 20th episode of Collision, where Don Callis, representing Hobbs, announced that due to some strategic maneuvers with NJPW management, the match would be for the IWGP World Heavyweight Title.
