Jon Moxley has a well-established history with New Japan Pro-Wrestling and has made significant appearances in the promotion over the years. Earlier this year, he competed at Wrestle Kingdom 18, one of NJPW’s premier events. At this event, Moxley participated in a match for the IWGP World Heavyweight Title and won the prestigious championship.

As previously reported, Jon Moxley defeated Tetsuya Naito to claim the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at NJPW Windy City Riot, thus making history.

Following his victory, Jon Moxley expressed gratitude to everyone who has been part of his journey, including Eddie Kingston. He also claimed that he has no loyalty to initials.

“Thank you to my teammates, to my friends, to my family, even Eddie Kingston, everybody who has been with me on this 20-year fumble f*** of an up-and-down journey. I stand at the top of a mountain tonight that nobody’s ever stood atop before,” You know what though? I don’t really give a f**k about belts, what three letters or four letters or five letters are on the name of the marquee, or the title, or the T-shirt, or the pay-per-view, or the letters on the belt. I don’t care.”“I go where I want. I do whatever the f**k I want, whenever the f*** I want. Nobody can stop me.”


It was also reported that Jon Moxley was granted time off from AEW in order for him to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. It remains to be seen how he will be booked as the champion in the coming weeks.
