Who Will Be AEW's Interim World Champion? Favourites Revealed!
All Elite Wrestling will take its first steps towards crowning an interim World
Champion this Wednesday, attempting to plug the gap left behind by CM Punk following news of his injury.
Punk, the reigning AEW World Champion, confirmed on Friday's Rampage that he was injured, necessitating surgery.
Although he'd be out of action for a while, company president Tony Khan was
letting him retain the World Title won from 'Hangman' Adam Page at Double Or Nothing 2022 (29 May), though an interim champion would be crowned in his absence.
The Interim World Championship Series was announced soon after.
Jon Moxley will wrestle a battle royal winner on this week's Dynamite, advancing to face either
Hirooki Goto or Hiroshi Tanahashi at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door (26 June),
depending on the outcome of the New Japan duo's 12 June singles match. The victor in that final bout will be crowned interim champion.
