Jon Moxley loves to fight and has competed against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer. For a long time many fans believed that Jon Moxley will be facing off against Hiroshi Tanahashi. This was a huge dream match for many.

Lance Archer lost the IWGP United States Title to Hiroshi Tanahashi at NJPW Resurgence and this made it even more evident that Moxley will face Tanahashi.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jon Moxley vs Hiroshi Tanahashi at AEW All Out is a huge question right now. It was stated that the match will take place, but it’s unlikely it will happen at All Out.

The reason Jon Moxley went hard on Hiroshi Tanahashi in his promo a few weeks ago and never mentioned his name in this week’s promo while mentioning a ton of other names is because the match was supposed to be imminent and that is no longer the case. Basically things changed from the New Japan side and the match will probably happen but not just yet. Most likely the idea would be for a Moxley win and right now New Japan didn’t want Tanahashi to lose based on whatever it is they have planned for the U.S. title.

We will have to wait and see just when Jon Moxley will face off against Hiroshi Tanahashi in a match in the future. Fans would love to see it happen as soon as possible. The bigger question is what AEW will do with Jon Moxley on September 5th, because he’s still very likely to perform on the show.
