A fatal four-way IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship match has been proposed for NJPW's Capital Collision pay-per-view.

On Twitter today, Will Ospreay posted a video challenging Hiroshi Tanahashi, Jon Moxley, and Juice Robinson to a fatal four-way match for the IWGP United States Heavyweight title at Capital Collision. The PPV is being held at the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, May 14.

Tanahashi is the current IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion. He won the vacant title by defeating Tomohiro Ishii at Wrestling Dontaku this past Sunday.

Ospreay was originally scheduled to be Tanahashi's opponent at Wrestling Dontaku, but Ospreay had to miss the show due to testing positive for COVID-19. 

Robinson attacked Tanahashi at Wrestling Dontaku and posed with the IWGP United States Heavyweight title belt. Robinson also joined Bullet Club in the process.

Last month, Moxley challenged Tanahashi to face him at Capital Collision.

The IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship was vacated by SANADA last month due to a fractured left orbital bone.

Two matches have been confirmed for Capital Collision thus far. Ishii will face Eddie Kingston at the PPV, while Minoru Suzuki will take on Brody King.
