Chris Jericho's next challenger for AEW Championship looks like it will be Jon Moxley

All Elite Wrestling may have lost in the Wednesday Night Wars last week for the first time since debuting on TNT, but they're looking to bounce back with a strong championship program going forward.

With NXT being involved in WWE's brand warfare pay-per-view Survivor Series for the first time ever this year, their go-home show before the event managed to eclipse Dynamite.

The promise of main roster stars showing up was apparently too good to resist for viewers, with extra tuning in to see the likes of Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins take it to the NXT stars.

It was a small blip for AEW but they're just coming off the back of their first pay-per-view since Dynamite began at the beginning of October and they're attempting to build new stories ahead of their next event - whenever that may be.

At Full Gear on November 9, Chris Jericho successfully retained his AEW World Championship against Cody Rhodes, with MJF throwing in the towel on behalf of Cody after he was locked in Y2J's Liontamer.

With the stipulation being that a Cody loss meant he would never challenge for the title again, 'Le Champion' needs a new long-term rival for his title.

It was unlikely to be SCU's Scorpio Sky, despite challenging Jericho for the belt last night on Dynamite, but the high-flyer gave it a good go, only to succumb to the crafty champion.

Jericho continued the beat-down post-match though, but a familiar face appeared amongst the AEW fans.

A former rival of Jericho's in WWE but under a different name, Jon Moxley showed up to stare down Y2J from afar, and he made it clear that he was after the AEW Title.

As of last week, PAC was at the top of the AEW rankings, but Moxley was only one place behind, and with the Brit losing to Kenny Omega last night, that could shift everything around when the next set are released.

Jericho and Moxley are all-too familiar with each other following their rivalry in WWE in 2016, and we've no doubt that whenever they inevitably face-off for the AEW Title, it's going to rule!
