First AEW Continental Classic Winner Crowned

Eddie Kingston Jon Moxley AEW

The Continental Classic is complete with the final taking place at AEW Worlds End and the first Continental Crown winner being named.

The Continental Classic has been the talk of AEW in recent weeks as twelve of the top stars in the company took part in a round-robin tournament much like NJPW’s hallowed G1 Climax event.

Jon Moxley was the standout performer of the Gold League, leading his block from the off in the competition and ultimately winning a three-way league final against Swerve Strickland and Jay White.

In the Blue League, it was a different story as Eddie Kingston was behind the 8-ball losing his first two matches. A four-match win streak soon followed and Kingston got the sweetest victory of all when he defeated Bryan Danielson in the Blue League final to set up a huge Worlds End match with Jon Moxley.

Eddie Kingston Claims AEW Continental Crown

Eddie Kingston had offered up his NJPW Strong Openweight Title and his ROH World Championship to be part of a new modern triple crown alongside the prize for winning the Continental Classic. When all was said and done, Kingston’s gamble paid off as he nailed his friend with a back fist to pick up the win.

Kingston was handed the NJPW and ROH title as well as the new Continental Crown title belt which featured a crown in the centre of its gold plate.

Worlds End also saw Samoa Joe capture the AEW World Championship from MJF before The Devil finally revealed himself to AEW and former champion MJF.
