Jon Moxley debuted at AEW Double Or Nothing 2019 and took no time in becoming one of the company’s mainstays. He has competed against the best of the best the company has to offer as well.
As seen on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, The Purveyor Of Violence faced CM Punk in an AEW World Title unification match. Moxley squashed Punk in under three minutes to become the undisputed AEW World Champion.
On this week’s show, CM Punk made it clear he will challenge Moxley for his title at All Out. While speaking on today’s AEW All Out Media Call, Tony Khan stated that he thinks AEW has never done anything like Jon Moxley vs CM Punk.
I do think it’s been a big benefit. It’s different than what we’ve typically done. It’s from one extreme to another because I’ve done go home shows where all the hay is in the barn and sometimes it can be a challenge and you’re taking practice swings with the ball on a tee.
I knew it was going to be a fast and furious build up, but the anticipation has been even stronger. I wouldn’t say we should do it like this every time, but this is the 15th pay-per-view for AEW, we’ve never done anything like this, and I think it made the build very exciting. it’s raised a lot of questions going into the match, there is a lot of speculation about what the future holds for both men, what the future holds for the championship, and what’s going to happen in part two based on what happened in that match on TV.
It was also undeniably a great ratings draw for us. We had tremendous ratings last week. The biggest thing of all, which I thought was cool, is we built more interest in the pay-per-view, while doing the biggest total audience the show has done since February. I was really pleased with it. What it created was a week of people loudly wondering ‘what the heck is going on here, this is crazy.’ In this case, that was good. The promos that Jon and Punk did, I think reeled a lot of people back in.”
We will have to wait and see whether CM Punk will be able to dethrone Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship at the AEW All Out pay-per-view. Keep checking back with Ringside News for all the updates you need.
