On last night’s AEW Dynamite on TNT, it was announced that AEW World Champion Jon Moxley would defend his title against Jake Hager in two weeks. The Empty Arena No Holds Barred Match will take place on Dynamite.
Back in February, after Jon Moxley beat Chris Jericho for the AEW World Champion at Revolution, the Inner Circle continued to go after Moxley. Since the champion figured Hager would be next in line. He decided to attack Hager on last week’s Dynamite. Then on this week’s AEW Dark, Hager returned the favor by attacking out Moxley.
See the lead-up to the match in the clip.
Most likely the match has already been filmed already due to the problems All Elite Wrestling has in securing a venue due to COVID-19. Lots of extra AEW content was filmed this week.
