AEW didn’t explicitly say why Jon Moxley wasn’t on Dynamite tonight (Nov. 3), but the crowd in Independence, Missouri was well aware of the news Tony Khan shared about the former World champ yesterday.
So when CM Punk came out, took his signature cross-legged pose, and told the chant he wanted to hear them chant for Mox, everyone knew the score.

After sincere words about the importance of not burying your pain & problems and asking for help like Moxley did this week, Punk got back to business. And that involved following up on the backstage run-in he had with Eddie Kingston at last Friday’s Rampage. The Best in the World wants an apology, and if he doesn’t get that, he wants a fight. Kingston wasn’t at Cable Dahmer Arena, but Punk will be waiting for him this Friday in St. Louis.

Eddie didn’t make Punk wait for an answer, either.

Still think leads to a Full Gear match, but I’m nearly as excited for three shows worth of promos we should get before the Nov. 13 PPV.
And Mox? You are the man.
