Jon Moxley is set to make his NJPW return at Resurgence

Jon Moxley is set to make his return to New Japan Pro-Wrestling later this month and compete in his first NJPW match of 2023.

New Japan have announced that Moxley will be in action at the promotion's Resurgence event in Long Beach, California on May 21. Moxley's opponent at the event has yet to be revealed. 

Resurgence will be the three-time AEW World Champion's first match in New Japan since he made a surprise appearance at the Night Before Rumble on 44th Street on October 30, 2022. He teamed with Kazuchika Okada, Eddie Kingston, YOH, Homicide, and Amazing Red to defeat Jay White, Juice Robinson, El Phantasmo, Tom Lawlor, Royce Isaacs, and Jorel Nelson in an Elimination Match. 

Moxley has performed for NJPW since the summer of 2019 and he is a two-time IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion. 

Already announced for Resurgence is Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Will Ospreay in the semi-finals of the IWGP United States Heavyweight Title number one contender's tournament. The winner will face Lance Archer in the final at Dominion. 

The inaugural NJPW STRONG Women's Champion will be crowned at Resurgence too. Mercedes Moné will face Stephanie Vaquer, and Willow Nightingale will take on Momo Kohgo in the semi-finals. The winners will clash in the final later that night.
