Below are a couple of top AEW & WWE news stories of the day, involving Jon Moxley, CM Punk and Drew McIntyre.

• Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli of Blackpool Combat Club defeated FTR at the Revolution PPV earlier this month.

Despite this outcome, Moxley & Castagnoli aren’t in the tournament for the vacant AEW World Tag Team Championship, but FTR is.

Also, Moxley is absent from AEW TV.

According to Fightful Select, Moxley has asked for some time off from All Elite Wrestling:

“We did learn that this time off was planned ahead of time, and the duo were not going to be available during the tournament.

Jon Moxley has upcoming bookings in Mexico next week, as well as Japan the following week, when the heart of the (AEW Tag Team Title) tournament would be taking place.

His match in Mexico was planned well over a month ago as well, and by then would not have been available to participate in the tournament.”

Moxley will team up with Shota Umino to take on HOUSE OF TORTURE (“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry & Ren Narita) at NJPW Sakura Genesis on April 6th.

• During an interview on Evan Mack’s World, Drew McIntyre was told that some fans believe he wouldn’t be wrestling Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40 had CM Punk not got injured.

McIntyre had the following to say about this:

“Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. It doesn’t mean that opinion’s right or wrong, but you know, I struggle to believe that Punk would be racking up the momentum I’ve racked up based on my work rather than based on my name value.

Like, you see, ‘I’m Punk. I got an incredible run with the company in the past.’ And people were so excited to see him back for the few weeks before he broke like glass.

But, you know, I’ve been putting in the work. I’ve been evolving the character. I feel like everything is hitting and I’m where I need to be, not just on television, but socially and the likes, and you can see it reflected in the numbers.

And I think he would not be surprised that if something is working, whatever the plans are, those plans can quickly change.”
