UPDATE: NJPW has confirmed that Jon Moxley will be appearing at the Best of the Super Juniors finals on Wednesday, June 5.


The former Dean Ambrose is coming to New Japan Pro Wrestling.

On his Twitter account tonight, Jon Moxley revealed that he's the person NJPW has been hyping in their "Time's Up" video. Moxley tweeted the video, which now ends with "Mox" appearing on the screen:

IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Juice Robinson has been the target of the video, and the date June 5, 2019 is included in it. That's the day NJPW's Best of the Super Juniors finals is taking place at Sumo Hall in Tokyo.

Moxley made a surprise appearance at AEW Double or Nothing on Saturday night, laying out Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, and a referee at the end of the show. AEW announced that Moxley has signed a full-time, multi-year deal with them, but AEW president and CEO Tony Khan noted in his post-show media scrum that Moxley will also do some other international and indie dates.

Moxley will make his AEW in-ring debut at Fyter Fest in Daytona Beach, Florida on Saturday, June 29.
