Jon Moxley’s GCW & Indies Status Update
As noted before, Jon Moxley recently signed a five-year contract extension with AEW. As part of the terms of the deal, Moxley will be exclusive to AEW and their partnership promotions.
Fightful Select reported that sources spoken to within Game Changer Wrestling stated that AEW originally did not want Moxley to compete at their Fight Club 2022 Night 1 event this past Saturday. These same sources reportedly stated that AEW officials had informed their talents to not take bookings for GCW for the past several months. Moxley reportedly told AEW officials that he wanted to finish up his commitments with GCW, which led to AEW approving of his match against Nick Gage and him dropping the GCW World Championship to Gage.
In regards to the match finish involving W. Morrissey and Stokely Hathaway, those spoken to within GCW reportedly stated that they had no say over the booking of the finish nor the angle that played out during the match.
Sources spoken to reportedly stated that Moxley likely will still be allowed to work in the indies but more on a “surprise basis” going forward for events.
