Jon Moxley: Former WWE Champion joins ALL Elite Wrestling. Makes his debut at the Main Event of Double or Nothing.
Ever since Jon Moxley AKA Dean Ambrose left the WWE last month, speculation has been rife on where the lunatic fringe was headed. Moxley remained quiet about his future. His only statement was a video that he uploaded on his twitter account.

The video was meant to symbolise the rebirth of JON MOXLEY, his previous incarnation before he joined the WWE. Instead of answering questions, the video only added more. Many fans were convinced that Dean was staying with the WWE and this was all a work. There were many also that believed Moxley would be all in.
Jon Moxley finally laid all those questions to rest by interfering the Main Event of Double or Nothing.
Moxley walked out with the commentator screaming:
JON MOXLEY IS HERE!
He slid into the ring and stared Jericho Down. The Lunatic Fringe stayed true to his moniker by hitting Jericho with the Dirty Deeds before hitting the referees as well.
Moxley stared at Omega as he got up. He attempted a Dirty Deeds on the former IWGP Champion but Omega managed to chase him out of the ring. The two stars then continued their brawl in the crowd area.
They fought onto the poker chip stage set up. Moxley delivered a Dirty Deeds on the poker chips and tossed him off onto the stage. Earlier in the main event, Omega was pinned by Jericho after a Codebreaker. Jericho will now face Hangman Page for the AEW Championship. Moxley, on the other hand is all in.
With this, AEW now have a big time acquisition that can be in their main events and casually lead to piqued interest from Moxley’s WWE fans. Moxley’s presence also means they now have another big star to work opposite Kenny Omega. It will be interesting to see where AEW goes with the Omega/Moxley feud.
