The match between Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega scheduled for All Out was canceled due to an injury by Moxley, who was replaced by PAC. On November 9th at Full Gear, Moxley defeated Kenny Omega in the main event of the evening, in an Unsanctioned match.
On January 5, 2020, at Wrestle Kingdom 14, Moxley defeated Lance Archer by conquering the IWGP United States Championship for the second time. In a recent interview with Sporting News, Moxley discussed facing Chris Jericho: “Chris was the first-ever undisputed champion.
This is a guy I used to watch on TV on Nitro and Raw. (It) would’ve been really easy for him to just be a rock star and count his money and just be Chris Jericho and Y2J. He loves to do this. He wants new challenges and loves pushing himself.
He really has a drive. I think his drive is to be the greatest of all time. I remember him telling me that when we were talking about ideas we had for an angle that we didn’t even end up doing because plans changed. He was gone for a while, and he’s like yeah, ‘I’m gonna call myself the greatest of all time’ because The Rock and Stone Cold (Steve Austin) and they hadn’t been here how ever long.
I’ve been here for longer been doing it at a higher level for longer (then) all these guys.’ I started thinking back then, and this is like 2015, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, you’re right.’ Like this is one of the greatest of all time.
He’s done so much else since then that it’s insane. I think his drive is to be in that top echelon of the greatest of all time. He’s definitely put himself in the conversation."
