All Elite Wrestling announced that Jon Moxley, its current World champion, has signed a five-year extension and will remain with the promotion through 2027.
The press release states that moving forward, Moxley will work exclusively for AEW and its international partners including New Japan Pro Wrestling, suggesting that he won’t be doing any more independent dates.
As part of his new deal, Moxley will also expand his roles within AEW which will include coaching and mentoring.
“Jon Moxley is on the best run of his already legendary career, and this five-year extension ensures that he was not only here for AEW’s meteoric rise, but also remains a key part of the sustained success we’re witnessing, just days after the three-year anniversary show for AEW: Dynamite,” said Tony Khan. “Jon is a great world champion for us in his third reign. His wrestling mind is invaluable, and our roster is lucky to have the opportunity to utilize him as a mentor and a coach as we continue to build the stars of today and tomorrow.”
Moxley added, “I love AEW and the spirit of both the company and its fans. I cherish our shared passion for the sport of professional wrestling, and I’m going to dedicate everything I have in mind, body and spirit to helping AEW be the best it can be going forward.”
