Jon Moxley defeats Hiroshi Tanahashi to become Interim AEW World Champion at Forbidden Door

Jon Moxley is the new Interim AEW World Champion and waiting in the wings is the current champion CM Punk

Waiting in the wings for Jon Moxley is CM Punk.

Headlining AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door was the singles match between Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi to crown an interim AEW World Champion. After a back and forth bout, Moxley hit the ‘Death Rider’ to put away Tanahashi and become AEW World Champion for a second* time in his career.

As Tanahashi and Moxley were about to show a sign of respect to each other, Chris Jericho and Daniel Garcia ambushed them both which led to Eddie Kingston making the save. All members of the upcoming Blood & Guts match were in the ring brawling but the last person to join the fray was Claudio Castagnoli, who defeated Zack Sabre Jr. earlier in the night.

As Claudio was standing alongside his Blood & Guts teammates, Eddie Kingston stayed on the outside of the ring and told Castagnoli, “F*ck you”.
