#3 Jon Moxley will dominate AEW

Double or Nothing had some unforeseen surprises but the appearance of Jon Moxley took wrestling world by storm. Moxley, who was known as Dean Ambrose in WWE, entered the arena after Chris Jericho defeated Kenny Omega. Moxley delivered a DDT to Jericho, while he had a brawl with Omega but Moxley stood tall to close the show.

Judging by the debut of Moxley, he is set to become the ultimate face of the new company. Moxley is undeniably the biggest signing of AEW and they will utilize him well. Considering the popularity of Moxley in the wrestling world, he could help AEW to attain a colossal success.

Moxley did not reach his potential in WWE but he is expected to rejuvenate himself in Tony Khan's company. The former WWE Champion will get the creative freedom to design his character. There is no denying that Moxley will dominate AEW for a long time.
