On May 1, Good posted a cryptic video on Twitter, promoting the return of his Jon Moxley gimmick. On May 25, Moxley made his unannounced debut for All Elite Wrestling (AEW) during their Double or Nothing event, attacking Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, and the referee after Jericho and Omega's main event match.
Shortly after, it was announced that Moxley had signed a multi-year contract. Moxley had his AEW debut match at the Fyter Fest pay-per-view in June, where he defeated Joey Janela in a non-sanctioned match. During his appearance on the Store Horsemen, Moxley commented on the “war” between AEW and WWE: “The more wrestling is good, the more wrestling fans there are, and the better it is for everybody.
You know? I’m not into this like, ‘war’ mentality the more I’m thinking about it. Because I’m like, the better we’re all doing, the better for everybody. Like I’m super — I’m a wrestling hippy about it at this point … If there’s more places, it’s better for the wrestlers.
If there’s like four different cool things going on, then maybe the best fit for you isn’t where you are. Maybe you go somewhere else”. Moxley made his debut for Northeast Wrestling (NEW) on June 14, defeating fellow AEW wrestler Darby Allin. The following night, he answered CazXL's open challenge, and would later defeat him in a match.
