Jon Moxley successfully retained his AEW World Championship at the end of Saturday night's Full Gear, and his celebration was cut short by the new No. 1 contender for his title, Kenny Omega. AEW doesn't have another pay-per-view on the schedule until Revolution in February 2021, but luckily they won't have to wait that long to see the two clash. The company announced on this week's Dynamite that their title match will take place on the Dec. 2 episode of Dynamite.
The two were rivals for a good portion of 2019, with Moxley attacking Omega during Dynamite's premiere as payback for the comments Kenny made about Moxley missing the All Out pay-per-view. They eventually met at Full Gear 2019 in a wildly violent Lights Out Unsanctioned Match, which Moxley won. He cut a backstage promo mentioning their first match, and that he would still win the rematch even though it's a standard singles bout.
Moxley captured the championship from Chris Jericho back at the 2020 Revolution pay-per-view and has since been on the longest championship reign in AEW's young history. So far, he has successfully defended the title against Jake Hager, Brodie Lee, Bria Cage, Darby Allin, MJF, Eddie Kingston (twice), The Butcher and Lance Archer.
Omega was interviewed later in the night, saying that he's ready to re-assume his role as "The Cleaner" and "The Best Bout Machine." He pointed out that their Lights Out match never actually counted in the record books, and that this would be their first real wrestling match.
