Jon Moxley defending New Japan title on AEW Dynamite next week

Last updated

AEW star Jon Moxley will be defending his IWGP United States Championship on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

Next week’s show is night one of the Fyter Fest shows, and Moxley will be putting the gold on the line against IMPACT star and former New Japan performer Karl Anderson.

Anderson and Gallows cut a promo on this week’s Road Rager episode of AEW Dynamite saying that they were ‘sick’ with Jon Moxley being the IWGP United States Champion, as they are OG Bullet Club and New Japan roster members.

The Good Brothers are set to return to NJPW soon for the NJPW Strong tag team tournament. NJPW Strong is available on New Japan’s OTT streaming service NJPWWorld which is only around $5-7 per month.

The rest of the card has also been confirmed, with WWE legends Matt Hardy and Christian Cage set to go one-on-one for the very first time in an All Elite ring.

Cage was asked by Hardy to join the Hardy Family when he first joined AEW but the former NWA World Heavyweight Champion rejected the offer.

The FTW Championship will also be on the line when Brian Cage defends against fellow Team Taz member Ricky Starks, who took shots at Cage’s wife on the show this week.

Here’s the full card currently confirmed card for Fyter Fest Night 1:

  • IWGP U.S. Champion Jon Moxley vs. Karl Anderson title match
  • Darby Allin vs. Ethan Page in a coffin match
  • FTW Champion Brian Cage vs. Ricky Starks title match
  • Matt Hardy vs. Christian Cage
  • Penelope Ford vs. Yuka Sakazaki
  • Hangman Page promo
