Jon Moxley will face MJF at AEW All Out 2020 in a world title match.
Jon Moxley should retain the AEW Championship as he Squares off against MJF in the main event of AEW All Out 2020. Yes, Moxley has had a six-month reign at the top and some wrestling fans are growing bored of his AEW world title run. It’s likely a byproduct of the instant gratification, microwave society that we live in today.
Fans have been preconditioned over time to see 4-6 different world champions in a year. They often want to see a mid-card guy who is seen as an underrated performer, receive a “participation award”, world championship win. It often ends in a few forgettable title bouts and there was a reason why that performer shouldn’t have been a world champion in the first place.
There was a time where world championship title runs meant something in the wrestling business. Getting to the top of the proverbial mountain was often a difficult chore.
Having a long reign with a world title meant that wrestling fans knew the wrestler was a big deal. Most importantly, the wrestling company itself had a strong belief in you as the person who can carry the flag in the promotion for a long duration of time.
A dominant run with a world championship in the United States is slowly returning to pro wrestling. Becky Lynch and Bayley have had year-long runs with their respective world titles. Adam Cole was the NXT champion for over a year. On the AEW side, Hangman Page and Kenny Omega have held the AEW tag team titles for nearly 9 months.
All Elite Wrestling is attempting to build continuity to the title belts on the men’s side. The women’s division is another case in and of itself, but I digress. Let’s dive into the logistics as to why Jon Moxley should retain the AEW championship at All Out on September 5th.
