Jon Moxley has announced that he will be working with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and confirmed his debut with them as early as next week.
Jon Moxley shocked the Wrestling community when he appeared at AEW Double Or Nothing and created a moment few will ever forget. He has signed a multi-year deal with AEWwhich will see him working exclusively for AEW domestically but he can work for other International promotions if his schedule permits.
Just two days after his Double or Nothing appearance, Moxley has now announced that he will work with New Japan also. He posted a video over twitter and tagged NJPW’s account. The video showed a vignette that has been making the rounds for weeks of a man with a knife. The video has ended with “Time’s Up” and a picture of IWGP United States Champion Juice Robinson. Moxley is then revealed to be the mysterious figure in the bar.
NJPW has also now confirmed that Jon Moxley will debut at the Best Of The Super Juniors event on June 5 in Ryogoku Sumo Hall. Moxley is the second major AEW wrestler to be competing for NJPW in the next few months. Chris Jericho, who defeated Kenny Omega this past weekend to become a contender for the AEW World Championship, is set to face Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship on June 9.
Moxley left WWE last month after he decided not to resign with the company. He was with the company for almost 7 years and became a grand slam champion. He got an extended farewell and a last reunion with the Shield. His last match with WWE came at a live event in Moline which was also aired on WWE Network titles as the Shield’s Final Chapter.
