Jon Moxley says he can become the greatest GCW World Champion ever if he wants to, but he mostly sees the belt as bait for the impending match with Nick Gage.
Jon Moxley, in a surprise attack against Matt Cardona, won the GCW world championship during AEW All Out weekend in Chicago, Illinois. Almost immediately after, it was made official that he will defend the belt on October 9 in Atlantic City, New Jersey against Nick Gage.
The situation between Moxley and Gage has been a slow-burning fire that is set to torch Atlantic City in Jon Moxley wouldn't have it any other way.

“Madison Square Garden, Grand Slam Champion, all those fucking toys and posters, they don't mean shit. Getting mugged by fans in airports and hotels and arenas, don't mean shit, I don't like people anyway,” said Jon Moxley in a visceral post-match promo. “It's not the drug that I love, the drug I've been addicted to you for over a decade. Nicky, when you were in jail right, pacing and pacing around in a jail cell, I was pacing around in hotel rooms. I wanted that drug.
“We have unfinished business, we have a score to settle that is 10 years old and I paced those hotel rooms and I prayed to God that you would get out one day so that we could settle that score. I tried to let it go, Spring Break I really tried to let it go. I tried to let you have your moment, but I just can't let it go. I want that drug, Nicky, the drug that only comes when me and you lock horns in the center of the ring and there's no other ring it can take place in but GCW. The place where I am the king now. Do you think [the championship] really means anything to me? I'm going to make it mean something. If I want to go and become the greatest GCW World Champion of all time, I can do that because I'm just that good. I can make it look that easy.”
Moxley concluded, "Do you know what this is to me, Nicky? This is bait. This is blood in the water and I wanted you to come hunting for me, sniff me out. You sniffed me out and you know exactly where I'll be in Atlantic City on October 9.”
