Juice Robinson vs. Jon Moxley set for NJPW BOSJ finals


The IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship will be on the line at the Best of the Super Juniors finals.

At a press conference tonight, NJPW officially announced that Juice Robinson will be defending the United States title against Jon Moxley at the BOSJ finals on Wednesday, June 5. Moxley revealed on Sunday night that he is the one that has been behind the “Time’s Up” videos that have been airing since Wrestling Dontaku.

In the press conference, Robinson brought up that he and Moxley started the same day in Florida Championship Wrestling and that he looked up to Moxley as he knew that Moxley was a better wrestler at the time. He also mentioned that Moxley has a singles win over him. But that was when he considered himself a young lion, saying that he wasn’t about to let Moxley take the title and leave after six months. He promised a brawl at the BOSJ finals.

Moxley resurfaced this past weekend by appearing at AEW’s Double or Nothing on Saturday. AEW then announced that Moxley has signed a multi-year deal with them. The following day, Moxley’s Twitter account posted the “Time’s Up” video with his name attached at the end. AEW President and CEO Tony Khan mentioned in a Double or Nothing post-show media scrum that Moxley will also do some other dates on the indies and internationally.

Also on the Best of the Super Juniors finals card is a match between Hiroshi Tanahashi and Jay White, who had a confrontation at Wrestling Dontaku following Tanahashi’s return from an elbow injury. The show will be headlined by the Best of the Super Juniors tournament finals.
