Suzuki & Archer to issue challenge to Moxley on AEW Dynamite


Following a loss to Jon Moxley in the main event of Wednesday's episode of Dynamite, AEW announced Thursday that Minoru Suzuki will appear on next week's Dynamite alongside former Suzuki-gun stablemate Lance Archer to issue "a new challenge" to Moxley.

The tweet stated that Suzuki and Archer were both "furious about preferential hometown treatment" that Moxley received Wednesday as the former AEW World Champion headlined in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Archer and Suzuki have history together from the time they spent together in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Archer was a founding member of the popular Suzuki-gun faction when they debuted in 2011. Archer won the G1 Tag League with Suzuki in 2011 and was a member of the group until February 2020 when he departed the company. 

NJPW recently announced that Archer and Suzuki would reunite at night two of the New Japan Strong Autumn Attack TV tapings in Dallas, Texas -- the first time they have done so since November 2019.
