Jon Moxley Addresses Swerve Strickland Match At AEW Dynamite: Winter Is Coming 2023

Jon Moxley is ready for a hard night at the office next Wednesday night.

Ahead of his AEW Continental Classic Tournament showdown against fellow 9 point-holder Shane “Swerve” Strickland on next week’s “Winter Is Coming” episode of AEW Dynamite, the Blackpool Combat Club leader spoke about the big match.

“Will next week against Swerve be a hard match? Yeah, hell yeah,” Mox said during an AEW digital exclusive backstage interview after his victory over RUSH this week. “But as they say, it’s a shame for the helmsman to be surprised when the wind is unfavorable. This is the Continental Classic baby, it’s supposed to be hard. Swerve Strickland’s got a lot of buzz… he’s cheap.”

Moxley continued, “Being at the top of this sport and staying there is another thing entirely and it’s very, very costly. For a guy like you in your position, it’s right about now when you realize that it’s a price you’re not willing to pay. Are you going to be the guy who takes me out? Whatever will be, will be. Next week, Swerve Strickland, Jon Moxley, and the ghosts and demons that always chase me to the ring. This is gonna be something you’ve never attempted to do before, and it’s gonna be a long night, so I suggest you pack a lunch.”
