At last Saturday night’s AEW Double Or Nothing PPV Event, Jon Moxley (WWE’s Dean Ambrose) made a surprise appearance after the main event matchup between Kenny Omega & Chris Jericho and took them both out. Jericho would defeat Kenny Omega and will now take on “Hangman” Adam Page at a later date for The AEW World Title. It was confirmed by AEW President Tony Khan that Moxley has a signed a multi-year deal with the company.
Khan said, “He has signed a multi-year contract, he will be on a full-time deal.” “When we go weekly, he’s going to be full-time. Same as some of the guys, especially when the schedule is light, I’m open to him working some international and indie dates. He is full-time with us, domestically, essentially he’s our guy. Yeah, he’s going to do some international and indie stuff, but he’s definitely an AEW full-time wrestler.”
Khan also said that once Moxley was cleared from his WWE contract, he immediately came to talk to him.
Khan said, “As soon as [Moxley] was out of his deal and wanted to talk to people, he came to me.” “And I was really excited to talk to him when he was able to talk to me. He’s been great and I’m really excited he’s part of the roster.”
It was also noted by Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso that it was confirmed by AEW that Jon Moxley’s in-ring debut will be taking place on June 29th at Fyter Fest in Daytona Beach, Florida, but an opponent has yet to be named. Dean Ambrose finished up with WWE last month after working for the company since 2011.
