Earlier this year, at the main event of New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Capital Collision pay-per-view in Washington DC, Juice Robinson won the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship for the third time in a four-way match over defending champion Hiroshi Tanahashi. Will Osprey, and Jon Moxley. Robinson and Moxley, the recently crowned AEW World Champion, will now face each other at All Elite Wrestling.
AEW President and CEO Tony Khan takes to social media To announce that Robinson will make his AEW debut this coming Wednesday’s “Dynamite” and will wrestle Moxley in a non-title contest. Should Robinson defeat Moxley, he would earn a shot at the championship. Robinson is one of only two men to defeat Moxley this year, while the other is the recently suspended CM Punk.
Robinson isn’t the only person looking for an AEW World Championship match. In the Grand Slam edition of AEW “Rampage”, “Hangman” Adam Page won a Golden Ticket Battle Royal for earning a shot at the championship on the October 18 episode of “Dynamite”. MFJ can redeem his poker chip for an AEW World Title match whenever he wants, based on winning the Casino Ladder match at All Out Pay-Per-View.
