Jon Moxley debuted at AEW Double Or Nothing 2019 and became one of the mainstays of the company since then. He continues to be an integral part of the company.
As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, CM Punk kicked off the show with a promo. After he was done with his controversial bit on Adam Page, Punk turned his attention towards Jon Moxley and verbally eviscerated him.
In the end, AEW officially announced that Punk and Moxley will face off in an AEW World Title unification match next week on Dynamite instead of All Out. While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Jim Cornette slammed Moxley for ruining the segment.
“It was honestly like you see an independent show where you have a star who has got his sh** together and is recognized, and people know who he is, and he’s coming to work with the local indie guy. And they’re trying to work with each other, but one guy looks like a star that’s together and composed and articulate, and the other guy [Jon Moxley] looks like he’s f**king trying to do a promo for smart fans and talk himself into it, and Moxley did the spooky voice indie style stuff.
Then they have the fight and Jesus Christ for a guy who literally likes to pummel people into jelly with his bare hands, according to him. Moxley can’t throw a punch to save his life. Can he? And conversely when he gets hit with a punch, he doesn’t move his head at all. So everybody else’s punches looked like sh**.”
We will have to wait and see whether CM Punk will be able to defeat Jon Moxley next week on AEW Dynamite. Fans are certainly divided when it comes to the star they want to see win.
