Jon Moxley has been a busy man the last 24 hours. He recently released a promo saying that the paradigm had shifted in the pro-wrestling landscape before declaring war on anyone who gets in his way. Now, in a new vignette, Moxley teases an appearance for New Japan Pro-Wrestling on June 5th, and has IWGP United States champion Juice Robinson in his sights.
Check it out below.

We reported earlier that Moxley’s AEW contract allows him to work as many international and indie promotions as he wants, as long as AEW gets first availability on his dates.

Jon Moxley to make first NJPW appearance on June 5 in Ryogoku!
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.
