Moxley is back.

For the first time since late October, Jon Moxley will be appearing for All Elite Wrestling at their 1/19 Dynamite show. Moxley was scheduled to compete in the semifinals of the AEW World Title Eliminator tournament at Full Gear, but he opted to pull himself from the match and from AEW to enter an inpatient alcohol treatment program.

Appearing for the first time in nearly 3 months, former #AEW World Champion @JonMoxley makes his long-awaited return to #AEWDynamite TOMORROW at 8pm ET/7pm CT LIVE on @TBSNetwork!

On January 23rd, Moxley is going to be defending the GCW World Championship against Homicide at the promotion’s Hammerstein Ballroom show.

Moxley is the second longest-reigning AEW World Champion behind Kenny Omega. The current champion is Hangman Adam Page. When Hangman made his return to AEW, Moxley was the lone competitor in the ring waiting for him.

Wonderful to hear. I thought it would happen this week given his announcement for the GCW card.

Weird. This should have been a longer build to his return, though it felt like a knee-jerk reaction with him showing up to GCW’s big show first and not AEW?
