Jon Moxley to miss G1 Climax opening day, press conference

NJPW announced tonight that Jon Moxley won’t be a part of the G1 Climax opening day card in Dallas, Texas.

They wrote the following this evening on their website: “Jon Moxley has been confirmed as a participant of G1 CLIMAX 29. Unfortunately, Moxley will miss the G1 CLIMAX 29 Opening Day taking place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX on July 6, 2019. Additionally, he will not be in attendance at the G1 CLIMAX 29 Press Conference taking place on July 5, 2019. Moxley will join the G1 tour on July 13 in Tokyo.”

Moxley had not been advertised for the show prior to tonight’s announcement. He will return to New Japan on July 13, when he faces Taichi in his first G1 Climax tournament match.

The G1 Climax opening day card will feature action from the A Block, as Hiroshi Tanahashi will battle Kazuchika Okada in the main event. The G1 Climax 29 Showcase, which will feature a press conference and meet and greets, will take place the day prior.
