All Elite Wrestling gained another big player as the former Dean Ambrose signs on.
Last night at Double or Nothing, Chris Jericho’s victory over Kenny Omega was short lived as Jon Moxley made his shocking return to the wrestling scene, taking out Jericho, Omega and even the referee.
Following the event, All Elite Wrestling issued a new press release confirming Moxley has signed a multi year deal with the promotion.
In a press release, AEW stated that:
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.
AEW C.E.O Tony Khan spoke on the Moxley signing, saying:
“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!”
Moxley, a former WWE Champion under the name Dean Ambrose, left World Wrestling Entertainment on April 21st.
