In case you missed Dominion 2019 or haven’t checked social media, Jon Moxley created buzz yet again Sunday by declaring he wants New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax Tournament. This came after squashing Shota Umino in less than 4 minutes in the opening match of NJPW’s second biggest show of the year.
Not only was the new IWGP United States champion the only one to declare their intentions for the summer tournament, but also Shingo Takagi and the newly acquired KENTA. You may know the latter as Hideo Itami of NXT and 205 Live fame who was granted his release earlier this year from WWE.
