Jon Moxley could have ignited the wrestling war to a whole new level in 2022 as he reveals he would have been able to show up to WWE’s SummerSlam event with the AEW World Championship if he’d wanted to.

SummerSlam took place in 2022 for the first time ever in the month of July in Nashville, Tennessee. Then AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley was in town on the same day as WWE’s event as he was competing against El Desperado on an NJPW show.

Speaking to Renee Paquette on The Sessions, Moxley revealed that he had been working over the summer of 2022 without a contract:

“I will give you a tid bit of information from my point of view. The entire summer, I was not under contract [with AEW.] No contract. Free agent. I was at Summerslam weekend wrestling Desperado and sh*t the day of Summerslam. F***ing suplexed him on a bunch of aluminium cans and sh*t cut in half. It was f***ing dope.

“I could have walked into Summerslam that night with the AEW f***ing belt, if had I been so inclined. Nobody knew that because I don’t put my sh*t out there in the world and let everybody know every f***ing thing about my business.”

Jon Moxley was speaking about his circumstances in relation to recent comments made by CM Punk that Moxley had refused to lose to him three weeks later on Dynamite for the AEW World Title. Moxley explained that he was “bending over backwards” for both Punk and Tony Khan during this time.
