New AEW World Champion Jon Moxley addressed the crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City after last night’s Dynamite Grand Slam main event, where Moxley captured the vacant title by beating Blackpool Combat Club stablemate Bryan Danielson in the final of the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions.

After the match, Moxley posed on the ropes and looked up to MJF, who watched from his deluxe box with his Casino Battle Royale poker chip, guaranteeing him a future title shot. MJF gave Moxley a dead look as BCC head William Regal joined Danielson and Moxley in the ring, from his spot at the announcement table. Danielson asked Regal if he passed out in Moxley’s rear naked choke before the finish. Regal tried to put the belt around Moxley’s waist, but Danielson took it off when Dynamite went off air on TBS.

In an update, Danielson ended the title around Moxley’s waist after Dynamite went off the air. Moxley and Danielson shook hands and hugged in the center of the ring before Danielson walked out, limping up the ramp.

Moxley continued his party and made his exit, but stopped on the ramp to grab a microphone and address the crowd. He made it clear that the AEW world title doesn’t define him, and that he thinks AEW is the best pro wrestling promotion.

“…You have no idea how good you guys were tonight,” Moxley told the NYC crowd. “Let me tell you this, I am now the AEW World Champion again and it is one of the best things I will ever do, but it is not even close to the top of the list. This championship does not define me! Being a good man, being a good father, being the kind of man people can look up to… that’s what defines me. But when it comes to the best wrestling promotion in the world… blood, swearing, tears, passion…. This belt doesn’t define me, but I define this belt!”

As we noted, Moxley was originally scheduled to take a 6-week vacation after the AEW All Out pay-per-view earlier this month, but AEW president Tony Khan needed him and Chris Jericho to perform while top stars were banned for the All Out backstage fight, pitting CM Punk and Producer Ace Steel against AEW Executive Vice Presidents Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. A friend of Moxley’s recently stated that he was “pissed” and “not too happy” that he had to go back to work so soon.

Moxley became the first-ever three-time AEW World Champion with his Grand Slam win last night. You can click here for spoilers on his first major title defense on a special Tuesday Night Dynamite, and you can click here for full spoilers from last night’s Grand Slam edition of AEW Rampage.
