BREAKING: Jon Moxley Has Arrived In All Elite Wrestling

Jon Moxley has arrived in All Elite Wrestling.

The former WWE world champion shocked the world Saturday night in the closing moments of AEW’s debut pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing, immediately following the bloody main event war between Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega.

Moxley’s contract with WWE famously expired at the end of April, in a surprisingly public affair that saw him team with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns for multiple Shield send-offs across the country.

The artist formerly known as the “Lunatic Fringe” wasted very little time sending a message to everyone in the AEW locker room by dropping Jericho, Omega and even a referee with his signature double underhook DDT, previously known as Dirty Deeds.

Moxley didn’t stop there, however, as he battled with Omega around the arena before carrying him up a stack of giant casino chips bearing the All Elite Wrestling logo, once again hitting him with Dirty Deeds, before tossing him more than 10 feet down to the floor, breaking the stage upon impact.
