Lance Archer has challenged IWGP United States Champion Jon Moxley to a Texas death match for night two of AEW Fyter Fest.
Archer issued the challenge on night one of Fyter Fest in a backstage segment. Following Jon Moxley's successful IWGP US title defense against Karl Anderson in the opener, Jake Roberts and Archer proposed that Moxley put up the US title on next week's show.
Moxley's current reign began with a win over Archer, also in a Texas death match, at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 14 on January 4, 2020 in the Tokyo Dome.
Archer held the title from 2019 into 2020. Archer won the title after Moxley vacated it due to travel issues in October 2019. Archer beat Juice Robinson in a no DQ match to win the title at NJPW King of Pro Wrestling 2019.
Archer made one successful defense during his reign, beating David Finlay at NJPW Showdown in San Jose, California in November 2019.
Here is the announced card for night two of Fyter Fest to this point:
AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest night two, Wednesday, July 21 --
