Moxley returns to NJPW, challenges Archer for Wrestle Kingdom 14

Jon Moxley laid out a challenge for Wrestle Kingdom 14 to Lance Archer this morning at the World Tag League finals.

Moxley came out after a match that featured IWGP United States champion Archer and Minoru Suzuki. Moxley emerged from the crowd and confronted Archer. He eventually laid out both Archer and Suzuki with the paradigm shift DDT.

He took the microphone and said he wanted his belt back and he will get it back. He said he would get it at Wrestle Kingdom 14 in a Texas death match. 

Moxley then set up a table on the outside and tried to put Archer through it. Archer fought back and they both ended up brawling around the ring. Archer grabbed a ring barricade and threw it at Moxley, and Moxley eventually returned the favor as they both brawled to the back.

Archer won the title after an impromptu no disqualification match between him and Juice Robinson at King of Pro Wrestling back on October 14. Moxley was originally supposed to defend the title against Juice, but was unable to make it to Japan due to travel issues relating to a typhoon that struck Japan that weekend.
