Jon Moxley is returning to GCW later this month.
The company announced tonight that Moxley will defend the GCW World Heavyweight title against Homicide at The Wrld on GCW, which takes place on January 23.
The world title defense is Moxley’s first announced appearance since Tony Khan announced on November 2 that Moxley was entering an in-patient alcohol treatment program. Moxley is signed to AEW but has also appeared on the independent scene, winning the GCW World title from Matt Cardona back on September 4.
Homicide won a battle royale to determine the next challenger for the GCW World title on New Year’s Day. It was not mentioned when the world title defense would take place.
Matches set for The Wrld on GCW, which will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom, includes Jonathan Gresham vs. Blake Christian for the ROH World title, Joey Janela vs. Matt Cardona, Allie Katch vs. Ruby Soho, and a trios match with Gringo Loco, Demonic Flamita, and Arez facing Bandido, Laredo Kid, and ASF.
