Jon Moxley's run before his ongoing hiatus

Before entering the rehabilitation program for alcohol addiction, Jon Moxley was competing in the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament. The former AEW World Champion was starting to showcase shades of a heel turn, but an official heel turn from MOX never occurred.

Following a victory over Preston "10" Vance in the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament, Moxley had advanced to the semi-finals. However, Moxley was removed from the tournament and was replaced by the returning Miro.

Moxley has also been competing under NJPW. Before his match against Vance in AEW, the former AEW World Champion teamed up with Eddie Kingston for an appearance on NJPW STRONG.

Moxley and Kingston were beaten by the Suzuki-gun duo of Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer in what was a rematch from AEW.

Meanwhile, over at GCW, Moxley became the GCW World Champion by beating Matt Cardona as his surprise opponent. Moxley won the world title at The Art Of War Games pay-per-view back in September.

Since winning the GCW World Title, Jon Moxley has also defended it against Nick Gage. Moxley defeated Gage at GCW Fight Club on 9th October.
