Powerhouse Hobbs is set to vie for the prestigious IWGP World Heavyweight Championship as he takes on Jon Moxley in an epic showdown on the April 24 episode of AEW Dynamite.

The stage was initially set for a standard singles clash between Moxley and Hobbs, following Moxley’s return to AEW on the April 17 episode of Dynamite. However, the stakes were raised dramatically on the April 20 episode of AEW Saturday Collision, thanks to the intervention of Don Callis.

After Hobbs secured an impressive victory in singles competition, Callis seized the opportunity to cash in favors owed to him by NJPW. He announced that the upcoming match between Moxley and Hobbs would now be for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, a title Moxley recently claimed by defeating Tetsuya Naito at NJPW Windy City Riot on April 12.

Callis emphasized that this move was in response to his pivotal role in brokering the historic Kenny Omega versus Chris Jericho match at Wrestle Kingdom 12, which significantly elevated NJPW’s exposure in the West and is considered a precursor to the formation of AEW.


With the stakes at an all-time high, fans can anticipate a thrilling encounter between Moxley and Hobbs for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship on AEW Dynamite.

Additionally, the episode will feature the fallout from AEW Dynasty, promising further excitement and intrigue for wrestling fans.
