Jon Moxley Is the new AEW World Heavyweight Champion.

The two-time titleholder made it three thanks to victory over Bryan Danielson in the final of the Grand Slam Tournament Of Champions. The match was the main event of the second annual Grand Slam edition of Dynamite from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York.

The all-Blackpool Combat Club headline attraction passed without involvement of looming contender MJF, who was shown constantly throughout the contest holding onto the giant poker chip that entitles him to a match for the belt any time he wishes. Moxley submitted Bryan in 19:15, getting on top of him with a chokehold having drilled him with a Paradigm Shift on the ramp seconds earlier.

The two embraced after the show went off the air, with Bryan ceremonially wrapping the belt around Moxley's waist in post-match scenes.

Moxley became the first ever three-time Champion in AEW history, having previously defeated Chris Jericho in 2020 and CM Punk last month for the strap. He was also entrusted with holding the gold on an interim basis this summer following Punk's first injury-related absence. His first contender of this reign will be decided by a battle royal set to take place on this Friday's Grand Slam edition of Rampage.
