Earlier this week Jon Moxley defeated Juice Robinson to claim the IWPG United States Championship. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that AEW is still deciding if they will acknowledge Moxley’s Championship at their next show.
“In a few weeks Jon Moxley will wrestle his debut match for AEW when he faces Joey Janela at Fyter Fest, and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that it hasn’t been decided whether or not All Elite Wrestling will acknowledge his IWGP US Title reign.
The key points are that NJPW has no relation with AEW, but they do have close ties to ROH, which is a competitor for AEW.
However, a huge percentage of AEW fans are likely aware of Moxley’s title reign, and to not acknowledge it would be to ignore the elephant in the room.”

For the first time WWE and AEW programing will air on the same day. On August 31st, NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff, will air just hours before AEW’s ALL OUT pay-per view. Triple H claims that the WWE booked the NXT date without advanced knowledge of AEW’s show on the same day.
“It had nothing to do with that particular day, or anything else” Triple H stated. “They are going to look across the pond so to speak, and tell the rest of the world follow that”
