Jon Moxley's Next Appearances In NJPW Revealed

New Japan will be Moxified very soon...

After defeating Juice Robinson at Wrestle Kingdom 14, Jon Moxley was attacked by Minoru Suzuki. Moxley and Suzuki then brawled on New Year Dash!! after the AEW star made the save for Kazuchika Okada. After delivering a Death Rider to the King Of Pro Wrestling, Moxley declared they had some unfinished business, setting up a match between the pair down the line.

Earlier today, NJPW announced Moxley would be returning to Japan sooner than many expected as he will be involved on both nights of The New Beginning In Sapporo on February 1st & 2nd. On night one, he will team with the man he saved on Monday, Kazuchika Okada, as they face Minoru Suzuki & Taichi. On night two he will take part in an Eight-Man Tag Team match as he joins forces with Roppongi 3K & Ryusuke Taguchi against Minoru Suzuki, El Desperado, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & DOUKI.

Moxley's confrontations with Suzuki will then culminate at The New Beginning In Osaka on February 9th as he puts the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship on the line.
