Jon Moxley’s First AEW Match Has Been Announced
Since he showed up at Double or Nothing on Saturday, big announcements about Jon Moxley‘s wrestling career have just kept coming. We learned his arrival in New Japan Pro Wrestling had been teased for about a month and that his first match there will be for Juice Robinson’s United States Championship. Last night, All Elite Wrestling, where Moxley will work full-time come the fall, revealed who the former Dean Ambrose‘s first opponent will be in their promotion: Joey Janela.
In addition to working for AEW and NJPW this summer, Moxley will also face other AEW wrestlers at independent promotion Northeast Wrestling. He’ll take on Darby Allin on June 14 and Pentagon Jr. on August 16th. If he and Janela don’t get bloody, if not go full-on death-match, at the video game show, either of these matches could easily end up delivering the explicit Mox violence.
