What most fans were talking about after AEW’s Double or Nothing show was not the emotional clash between Dustin and Cody Rhodes, nor the main event battle between Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega, but rather the shocking appearance of Jon Moxley, formerly Dean Ambrose of WWE.

Moxley’s debut at the end of the show seemingly set up a feud with former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega, but it was unclear if this was a one-off deal, or if the former WWE Champion would be hanging around on more of a full-time basis. However, details later emerged confirming that Moxley had signed a full-time, multi-year deal with Tony Khan’s promotion.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has also confirmed this, and adds that AEW plan on using Moxley every week once their TV show starts in late 2019. He also states that the company want to have him be one of their top guys:
“He’s basically going to be a weekly television character so it’s not like he’s going to be doing a few shows a year [for AEW]. He’s weekly part of their thing and right in the mix. They prettymuch established to me when the show was over in the singles division it’s Cody, Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, and Jon Moxley and Adam Page are gonna be the big five and if Pac comes back he may end up close to that.”
It has also been confirmed that Moxley will be having his debut match for AEW at Fyter Fest next month. His opponent at this time is not known, but one can assume it will likely be Kenny Omega.
