Jon Moxley wins AEW World title for third time at Grand Slam

Jon Moxley became the new AEW World champion – again – last night on Dynamite: Grand Slam after he beat Bryan Danielson in the main event of a memorable show.

With this win, Moxley becomes the only three-time AEW World champion in the company’s history, with only CM Punk being the other multi-time champion.

Mox beat Darby Allin in the semi final after he got a bye in the first round in the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions to advance to the final.

Moxley won the title at the Revolution pay-per-view in February 2020 from Chris Jericho and then lost it to Kenny Omega in December of that year. He won the interim title at AEWxNJPW: Forbidden Door show in June and then beat CM Punk to keep the title and become the undisputed champion.

But Mox lost it a week and half later to CM Punk in Chicago at All Out, a victory which led to an explosive press conference and subsequent backstage brawl. That prompted Tony Khan to vacate the title and hold the tournament of champions.
