Jon Moxley Promo Airs During Wrestle Kingdom 15

Last updated

Although he could not be in attendance, Jon Moxley would appear in a pre-taped promo at Wrestle Kingdom 15. The IWGP United States Champion would issue a challenge before the KENTA vs Satoshi Kojima match, with the winner of that bout going on to face Moxley for the belt.

Jon Moxley ‘Appears’ at Wrestle Kingdom

Jon Moxley was stood in New Japan’s United States based ring during the promo, which is interesting as he is currently not ‘permitted’ to appear on United States dates for New Japan. This was reportedly one of the stipulations of Moxley’s AEW contract, which has stopped both Moxley and Chris Jericho from appearing on US based NJPW cards in the past.

It is likely that Moxley will face the winner of KENTA vs Kojima once he is able to return to Japan; this of course is all dependent the COVID-19 restrictions in the country.
