Jon Moxley officially made his AEW in-ring debut at Saturday’s Fyter Fest event at Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida.
At this show, he took on the talented Joey Janela in a non-sanctioned match that saw Moxley go over. Originally, this contest was supposed to be a normal singles match but that was changed earlier this week when All Elite Wrestling announced the match change. This was what you would expect as there were several spots with weapons that included thumbtacks, a chair with barbwire and Janella hitting an elbow drop off a ladder to the floor through tables.
Last month, AEW confirmed that Moxley is signed to a multi-year deal so it is clear that he will be featured as one of the top stars in the company.
Moxley is now set for a huge match at All Out in Chicago against Kenny Omega at the Sears Centre Arena. That show is set for August 31st and it will be the final event before AEW’s weekly TV show kicks off on TNT in October.
