Over the past two years, there have been multiple WWE stars who have decided to come to AEW and work for Tony Khan. The first to start this trend was Jon Moxley who, on Double or Nothing in 2019, sent web wrestling into raptures by showing up at the end of the main event and attacking Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega.
From there onwards, there was a steady stream of talent and Hall of Famers: the late Brodie Lee, Rusev, Zack Ryder, Matt Hardy, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Sting and many more. Interviewed recently on Inside The Ropes, Moxley explained how he would like to see Christian in AEW: "I'll tell you all, I really wish Christian would come to us.
I don't know if his appearance on the Royal Rumble was a one night only, but he was in amazing shape. He never seemed to miss a beat. Christian is truly amazing. His head, his fighting style, his mind for the wrestling world are incredible.
All the kids love it."

Jon Moxley added: "All the people who have worked with him respect him and no one will tell you a bad thing about him. He could do amazing things here at AEW and have full creative freedom.
I mean, we're about to have an Exploding Death Match, there are no restrictions here. I would love to see Christian in AEW”. Shortly after his return to Rumble, rumors spread that Christian wanted to take on the role of a part-timer in WWE, but the plans haven't materialized yet.
Christian's appearance at the PPV was also a great surprise for his close friend Edge, who admitted to having discovered it only two days before the event. If the Canadian were to really go back to fighting, he would already have the challenge of a star on the main roster on the table: Big E, in fact, posted an image on Twitter that recalled the failure of the two to clash.
Jon Moxley has been an h*t topic in wrestling ever since he departed WWE, becoming one of the most talked-about figures in the business. The former WWE Champion is arguably the most important figure in professional wrestling right now.
Jon Moxley is also set to defend his IWGP US Heavyweight Championship against KENTA of New Japan Pro Wrestling next week on February 26 at the NJPW New Beginning USA 2021. With Moxley competing at GCW Bloodsport last night, he will be main eventing major events for three big wrestling promotions within the span of only three weeks.
Jon Moxley has become unquestionably one of the most central figures in all of wrestling right now with his extremely busy schedule.
