Jon Moxley Pre-Rehab Match Set To Air For NJPW
Jon Moxley will be competing in a match that was pre-taped and will not be live. Jon Moxley is currently in rehab and working on getting better.
The match was taped on October 17th for NJPW Strong Showdown. Moxley will team with fellow AEW star Eddie Kingston to take on Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer at the New Japan Strong Showdown on November 27. Fittingly, the show takes place at the former ECW Arena in Philadelphia.
The match is booked as a Philly Street Fight. New Japan announced this and other big matches on their English-language website.
“The iconic home of hardcore that is the 2300 Arena gets a fitting main event this week as Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer take on Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley. It was early in the autumn when Suzuki arrived in the USA and started his American sojourn by resuming a feud with Jon Moxley. Reconnecting with AEW’s Lance Archer in the process, the two took on Mox and Kingston in New York, only for the sudden appearance of NY native Homicide to lead to a Suzuki-Gun defeat. Demanding a rematch on NJPW turf, now the four are set to collide in a violent war with no disqualifications or count outs, and where the referee’s only job is to render a decision by pinfall, submission, or knock out.”
In early November Moxley entered an inpatient rehab program for alcohol abuse. He is said to be in good spirits and well on his way to recovery. While it will be good to see him on tv again it will be much better to see him live once he is well enough to get back in the ring. We here at Bodyslam.net are pulling for ya MOX!
