The Promotion posted on their website:
“Jon Moxley will be appearing in Ryogoku Sumo Hall June 5; with apparent designs on IWGP US Heavyweight champion, Juice Robinson. Moxley previously saw worldwide fame as a WWE ‘Grand Slam’ Champion and member of top flight faction The Shield under the name Dean Ambrose.
All month long, Robinson’s matches and commentary have been interrupted by a mysterious video stating that it was ‘time up’ for the IWGP US Champion. Sunday at Makuhari Messe, Robinson exploded during the Best of the Super Juniors broadcast; saying that he knew who the mystery challenger was, and stormed out of the building.
Earlier this afternoon, Moxley posted a video to social media that suggested he was the culprit. After checking the veracity of the post, we can confirm that Moxley is indeed the original video’s creator, and will be appearing on June 5 in Ryogoku Sumo Hall.
NJPW have reached out to Robinson for comment and will provide updates to this story when available.”
Moxley’s resurgence has been inspirational. He is truly alive now and has declared war on anyone that dares to stand before him. It will be truly exciting to see him ply his trade in Japan and hope he finds continued success everywhere he goes.
