Jon Moxley-Kenny Omega Set, Roman Reigns Responds To Rowan
After a delay, AEW has rebooked Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega. Also, Roman Reigns and Rowan will battle at WWE's Clash Of Champions.
AEW’s Full Gear PPV Receives Jon Moxley Vs. Kenny Omega
Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega will get the chance to square off against one another inside the AEW ring, as the promotion announced the bout for the upcoming AEW Full Gear pay-per-view. That event takes place Saturday, November 9 from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
The two were scheduled for the recent All Out event, but Moxley was removed after confirming he had a serious case of MRSA return to his elbow. The former WWE superstar had planned on attempting to battle through the injury. Omega, a former IWGP heavyweight champion, instead met former WWE cruiserweight champion PAC, losing after passing out while in his submission finisher, the Brutalizer.
Moxley and Omega’s feud started when Moxley first debuted following his departure from the WWE at Double or Nothing. He attacked Omega to end the debut pay-per-view event, wth Omega exacting revenge at Fyter Fest this past June.
It is very likely that Moxley and Omega are heavily featured when AEW debuts on TNT this October, giving them a month to build towards the showdown inside the ring.
Roman Reigns Issues Stern Warning To Erick Rowan
Roman Reigns was left on his back following an attack by Erick Rowan on SmackDown recently, but the former WWE champion definitely is not down. Reigns took to social media to continue the feud.
“Worst mistake you made was only knocking me down,” Reigns posted on Twitter. “Not out. Less than two weeks.”
The two heavyweights will collide at WWE Clash of Champions on Sunday, September 15 from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Outside of the finals in the King of the Ring tournament, Reigns and Rowan are the only bout announced to date that is not a championship match on the card.

During SmackDown, Rowan admitted that he was the assailant in the vicious attacks over the past several weeks on Reigns, taking out both his future opponent and ending his alliance with Daniel Bryan at the same time by putting him through the announcer’s table with his Iron Claw Slam finisher.
For Rowan, this presents his biggest feud to date. The former two-time tag team champion has been part of a stable for much of his WWE career, first with The Wyatt Family along with Luke Harper and Bryan. Rowan and Bryan won the SmackDown tag belts in May of this year, just a few short months after he appeared at Royal Rumble to help Bryan retain his WWE Championship vs. AJ Styles.
