Jon Moxley debuted at AEW Double Or Nothing 2019 and took no time in becoming one of the company’s mainstays. He is the Purveyor of Violence and is always looking for a fight.
As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, The Purveyor Of Violence squared off against CM Punk in an AEW World Title unification match. Moxley decimated Punk in under three minutes to become the undisputed AEW World Champion.
While speaking to Mo Egger & Rick Ucchino on Cincy 360, Moxley commented on squashing CM Punk to become the Undisputed AEW World Champion. Moxley made it clear he is unapologetic about it.
“I don’t get paid by the hour. Belts come and go, I’ll lose this one at some point, somebody will beat me, I’ll get back on the horse and get another one. I’m not gonna quit for seven years or feel sorry for myself. That’s not how these things go. The win last night felt good, all this stuff is what you make it. If they say ‘you’re interim champion, no matter how hard you work, you’re not the real champion.’ It felt obvious it would be leading to a confrontation with me and CM Punk. It was an inevitable collision that happened last night. I knew the minute I walked into Forbidden Door, I was going to work with him at some point.
If you get mad about that [being Interim Champion] and bring negativity, your performance gets affected. If you use that as fuel and ‘you want to call me an interim champion, take it and shove it up your ass. Having that chip on my shoulder and using it as fuel, that’s what I’ve been doing the last several months coming to the ring and defending the belt. I showed what that mentality and energy can do when I showed up last night and beat the brakes off that bastard
We will have to wait and see how Jon Moxley is booked as the AEW World Champion. With AEW All Out right around the corner, it seems they already have an opponent in mind.
