Yesterday, Jon Moxley, aka Dean Ambrose, confirmed that he would make his debut at the NJPW at the show on June 5, during the Best of Super Jr. 26 final. His opponent was not announced, however, but this is now done!
The Japanese company has announced that Juice Robinson will defend the US Heavyweight title of the IWGP against Jon Moxley! He will be in his fourth game in which the title is in play. So will Moxley become champion?
In the same show, the winner of Block A (Shingo Takagi or Taiji Ishimori) and Block B (Will Ospreay, El Phantasmo, Ryusuke Taguchi or Robbie Eagles) will compete for the final of the tournament. In addition, Hiroshi Tanahashi will return to the ring after almost two months of absence due to injury. He will face Jay White.
