AEW World Champion Jon Moxley will be defending his title against Kenny Omega on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. It could be the biggest match in the show’s history, but it is unlikely to change Moxley’s status in NJPW.
Wrestle Kingdom will be taking place on January 4th and 5th, 2021. Moxley is currently the IWGP United States Champion. However, he has been unable to defend his title in Japan due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the travel issues that resulted from it. There are some fans who think that if Moxley drops the AEW World Title, he will be able to travel to Japan for Wrestle Kingdom.
According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was said that
“IF he was going to the Tokyo Dome show, he wouldn’t have to lose the title.”
It is likely Moxley will not be competing at Wrestle Kingdom next year. We will have to see if he can retain his AEW World Title against Kenny Omega.
