Jon Moxley retained his AEW World Championship in a violent encounter with Brodie Lee on Saturday night at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view. The final sequence of the bout saw Moxley crawl to the top of the entrance ramp and drive Lee through the elevated ramp. Both men managed to climb out of the hole they created, leading to Moxley hitting another Paradigm Shift. Lee kicked out at one, then kicked out again after Moxley hit a third.
Deciding that he couldn't keep him down through normal means, Moxley locked in a sleeper hold and refused to let go until Lee passed out. The match official ended via referee stoppage.
Moxley celebrated by reuniting himself with his championship belt (which Lee had stolen several weeks back). He then said told the camera that if other wrestlers know what's good for them, they'll stay away from the AEW World Championship.
Thanks to his victory earlier in the night in the Casino Ladder Match, former Impact World Champion Brian Cage will be Moxley's next challenger.
