It's now official: Jon Moxley will challenge Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship on February 29th at AEW Revolution in Chicago, Illinois.
Moxley recently won a match against PAC to become the number one contender for the championship. The location for his shot against Jericho, though assumed, wasn't made official until this afternoon when AEW made the Revolution main event official via their Twitter page.

Moxley opened Wednesday night's Dynamite in Cleveland by coming out to the ring and addressing Jericho. He called Jericho a bully and attempted to call him out for a fight during the show. Jericho emerged alongside his Inner Circle partners, leading to a brawl between the men that had to be broken up by officials.0comments
Revolution marks AEW's fourth PPV event since the company launched last year and the second of which that has emanated from the Chicagoland area. Previously, AEW All Out occurred in suburban Chicago last August. The company's first PPV (and event), Double Or Nothing, took place in Las Vegas last May, while Full Gear was broadcast from Baltimore last November.
