Jon Moxley vs. Will Ospreay set for NJPW Windy City Riot

NJPW confirmed the match after Moxley accepted Ospreay's challenge in a video.

Jon Moxley vs. Will Ospreay is official for NJPW’s Windy City Riot event next month.

After Ospreay spent much of the NJPW Cup tour challenging Moxley, NJPW’s social media posted a video of Moxley accepting Ospreay’s challenge, saying that Ospreay’s words have consequences. Moxley told Ospreay that while Ospreay was more talented than he was in terms of wrestling, it may now be time for Moxley to beat some humility into him, with Moxley promising that he would beat down Ospreay into the ring like a railroad spike.

NJPW then confirmed the match would take place at Windy City Riot:

Moxley last wrestled for NJPW at Showdown 2021 back in October, where he and Eddie Kingston lost to Lance Archer and Minoru Suzuki.
