Jon Moxley vs. Bryan Danielson next week will determine the next AEW World Champion.
Both Moxley and Danielson won semifinal matches in the AEW Grand Slam Tournament of Champions on Wednesday’s Dynamite. With their wins, they will now move on to the finals, which will take place on next Wednesday's Dynamite at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City.
Moxley beat Sammy Guevara at the open of Wednesday’s show, the first to advance. Then in the main event, Danielson defeated Chris Jericho after submitting Jericho with a crossface. After the match, Moxley came down to the ring and the two had a staredown. Danielson then extended his hand, with Moxley shaking Danielson’s hand to close out the show.
The AEW World Championship was declared vacant on last week’s Dynamite after CM Punk was suspended from the company for a backstage altercation that took place following AEW All Out between himself and The Young Bucks. In addition, Punk recently underwent surgery for a torn triceps, putting him out of action.
