It’s official, folks: Jon Moxley is an AEW star.
Moxley’s debut at AEW’s Double or Nothing PPV Saturday night blew the roof off of the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and the wrestling world is in an absolute frenzy over his actions against Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega.
After the show was over Cody spoke to media about what Moxley’s signing meant to him, and how he was the top draft pick for AEW. The company was quick to confirm after the PPV had ended that Moxley is signed to a multi-year deal, squashing any rumors that the former WWE Superstar could appear back in Dean Ambrose’s former home. The official press release is available below.

Las Vegas, NV (May 25, 2019) – In a night jam-packed with intense showdowns and incredible clashes, AEW rocked the wrestling world even further with a surprise appearance by international wrestling star Jon Moxley to close out DOUBLE OR NOTHING.
AEW confirmed tonight that it has officially signed Moxley to a full-time, multi-year agreement effective immediately. Moxley, who was twice voted as Most Popular Wrestler of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, will make his in-ring debut at FYTER FEST in Daytona Beach, FL, on Saturday, June 29.
“The arrival of Jon Moxley at Double or Nothing was the perfect ending to one of the most important nights in wrestling history,” said Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW. “There was no better way to conclude an evening of new beginnings than with the introduction of the best free agent wrestler in the world. The chaotic scene that unfolded in the closing moments of Double or Nothing was emblematic of the unpredictability and explosiveness that Jon Moxley will bring to AEW. We’re very proud that Jon has signed a multi-year contract, and he is officially on the All Elite Wrestling roster!”
