Earlier today, Tony Khan tweeted that fans may be in store for a surprise tonight on AEW Dynamite.
While many will expect a former WWE and/or ROH talent to appear on tonight’s show, another very real possibility is Jon Moxley’s return.
Moxley hasn’t been seen on AEW television since October because he’s been in an inpatient alcohol program since November 2nd. However, during GCW’s Die 4 This pay-per-view on January 1, Homicide won the Do or Die Rumble match and it was announced that he would challenge Moxley for the GCW Title at the Hammerstein Ballroom on January 23.
If the expectation is that Moxley will be on that show, then you’d have to assume that AEW gave their approval and they would want Moxley to make their return on their own show.
Presumably, Moxley would return tonight or on next week’s show before the GCW show in New York City. We haven’t heard from Moxley since early November but Tony Khan has said in interviews that he seems to be doing better. Tonight could be the night when he returns to AEW TV.
