Jon Moxley made his debut at AEW Double Or Nothing 2019 and instantly became a huge star there. He has truly been one of the most consistent and dependable stars in the company as well.
During AEW Dynamite last week, Jon Moxley squared off against Bryan Danielson in the finals of the AEW World Title tournament. In the end, Moxley won the match after a gruelling war with The American Dragon.
While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru podcast, Jim Cornette gave surprising props to Jon Moxley in particular. He stated that it was a 5-star extravaganza considering Moxley’s usual matches.
“Jon Moxley stayed in the ring for the entire match except one spot on the ramp and right back in and nobody bled. Is this the first time ever? […] This was a stiff match, a modern style match I could have done with a hold every once in a while you know some wrestling? One tackle, drop down, hip toss, kick off, arm drag, body slam, drop kick – anybody do that s**t anymore but no, they beat the s**t out of each other – chops and kicks.
Danielson looks better doing it than Moxley does to be honest. But this is the modern match, it was good it was a f***ing five-star extravaganza from what Moxley usually does… I did get a kick out of doing the old leg grape vine and the headstand thing where they slap each other in the face while they were standing on their heads. I have not seen that in 25 years… I am not taking any p*** out of this match, it was definitely great for Moxley and good for Bryan.”
We will have to wait and see how Jon Moxley will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks. If anything, he is more than ready to take on all challengers.
