On last night's AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho retained his World Championship in a good match (with a great, great near-fall). In the aftermath, he continued to beat down Scorpio Sky. In a jarring moment, Jon Moxley's theme blared through the PA. It was hardly ideal - the various production hiccups that have plagued AEW in recent weeks created more confusion than excitement - and a bit too contrived. It was a bit too "that other company", which undermines the marketing assault.
Regardless, when Moxley did appear in the stands, he drew the intended reaction. This seemed to all but signal Jericho's next major programme, but Excalibur did point out that the when of the matter is unclear.
This was reassuring, since PAC - in spite of his defeat to Kenny Omega - does possess the superior win/loss record.
Since AEW has generated trust with its logical, attentive booking thus far, it's not unreasonable to point out that Moxley and PAC's simmering tension can easily be picked back up as a plot point: they drew for a reason, a few weeks back.
Hopefully this is the reason, and that programme is revisited as a contendership battle; otherwise, that Unsanctioned match may have counted, after all.
