Jon Moxley surprised a lot of people when he made his big AEW debut, but he also had other deals in place too. The only catch was they weren’t allowed to say anything publicly until Mox debuted in AEW.
Moxley is set for an IWGP United States Title match on June 5th against Juice Robinson. That match could be amazing and it will be very interesting to see how the former Dean Ambrose works in a NJPW in his first match since leaving Vince McMahon’s company.
NJPW got right to work by making Moxley’s inclusion official they now have an entire profile up for him which includes the following description:
Jon Moxley has made a huge impact upon the wrestling industry, adept in many styles, but earned his reputation as a wild brawler, reminiscent of many hardcore legends. And although not acknowledged as such, he is a true dark horse in the industry both on camera and behind the scenes. Whose microphone skills are reminiscent and rival that of a young Roddy Piper and in-ring ability has captured a worldwide fanbase.
He is a WWE Grand slam Champion, holding multiple major titles including , WWE Raw Tag Team Championship (twice), HWA Heavyweight Championship (three times), HWA Tag Team Championship (five times), FIP World Heavyweight Championship (once), CZW World Heavyweight Championship (twice), IWA World Tag Team Championship (once), wXw World Tag Team Championship (once)
It’s hard to forget that Jon Moxley is a great wrestler, but when you see his accolades listed out like that it really puts into perspective just how much WWE is going to miss him. However, their loss seems to be everyone’s gain, especially the fans.
