Jon Moxley defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi to become the new AEW Interim World Champion at AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door.

As noted, on the 6/3 episode of AEW "Rampage," newly crowned AEW World Champion CM Punk announced that he had a foot injury. Due to his injury, AEW President Tony Khan decided to an Interim AEW World Championship Eliminator Series to crown a new Interim Champion.


To get to tonight's match, Tanahashi had to defeat Hirooki Goto at NJPW's Dominion event, while Moxley had to defeat Kyle O'Reilly on the 6/8 episode of  "Dynamite." 

After AEW World Champion CM Punk is medically cleared to compete, Moxley will face CM Punk in an AEW World Championship Unification Match.
