Jon Moxley discusses AEW’s current situation

During his WWE career, Jon Moxley held the WWE Championship, three times the Intercontinental Championship, once the United States Championship and twice the Raw Tag Team Championship (with Seth Rollins), making it the 16th wrestler to complete the Grand Slam in the new format.

He was also the winner of the 2016 edition of Money in the Bank, which he successfully cashed against Rollins the same evening. Characterized by his crazed and unstable wrestling persona, Good has also been recognized for his popularity with audiences, winning the Pro Wrestling Illustrated award for Most Popular Wrestler of the Year in 2014 and 2015, as well as being named Wrestler of the Year by Sports Illustrated in 2019.

Outside of wrestling, he made his acting debut as the star of the action film 12 Rounds 3: Lockdown (2015) and will appear in the action film Cagefighter: Worlds Collide (2020). During the first night of Wrestle Kingdom on January 4, 2020, Moxley defeated Archer to win the championship for the second time.

The following night, Moxley successfully retained the championship against Robinson, ending their long-running feud. After the match, he was confronted and beaten down by Suzuki. Moxley successfully defended the championship against Suzuki at The New Beginning in Osaka in February.

From June 2019 onwards, Moxley has made sporadic appearances on several independent promotions such as Northeast Wrestling (NEW) and Future Stars of Wrestling (FSW). He was also scheduled to wrestle matches for Over the Top Wrestling (OTT) and Game Changer Wrestling (GCW), but the events he was due to perform at were cancelled as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During a long interview with Wrestling Inc, he discussed AEW’s current situation: “It’s not ideal, obviously, for anybody. That PPV was only seven weeks ago when I was celebrating bloody in a sea of fans.

But now it’s not like that anymore. My mother was at that show and I don’t know when I’m ever gonna see her again because she’s barricaded up in Ohio. It’s challenging times and definitely not ideal”.
