Moxley’s AEW Contract Doesn’t Allow NJPW Events In US

Jon Moxley will not be appearing at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 opener in Dallas next month due to his current deal with All Elite Wrestling.

According to Dave Meltzer in the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Moxley’s deal with All Elite Wrestling doesn’t allow him to work New Japan Pro Wrestling events in the United States.

New Japan Pro Wrestling issued a statement advising that Moxley will not be present during the G1 Climax press conference on July 5, and the opening day of the G1 Climax on July 6 in Dallas, TX. This is the reason why Moxley was put into the B block of the tournament, as it will not be held in the U.S.

Jon Moxley has been confirmed as a participant of G1 CLIMAX 29. Unfortunately, Moxley will miss the G1 CLIMAX 29 Opening Day taking place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX on July 6, 2019.

Additionally, he will not be in attendance at the G1 CLIMAX 29 Press Conference taking place on July 5, 2019.

Moxley will join the G1 tour on July 13 in Tokyo.

We apologise to fans who were looking forward to seeing Moxley in Dallas, and appreciate your understanding.

All Elite Wrestling has no working relationship with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho, and Kenny Omega have the ability to work New Japan Pro Wrestling events, but not in the United States.

Jon Moxley will be making his Game Changer Wrestling debut at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 2 on September 14 in Atlantic City, NJ.

Bloodsport events feature matches that must end in either a knockout or submission. The ring features no ropes or turnbuckles, and the matches are presented in a MMA style. Although these bouts are worked, competitors work stuff and the matches have a semi-shoot feel.

At the last Bloodsport event Josh Barnett and Minoru Suzuki worked until a time-limit draw.

GCW and Josh Barnett are teaming up to bring back one of the most talked about events of the year when Bloodsport comes to The Showboat in Atlantic City on Saturday, September 14th!

It’s the ultimate hybrid. MMA meets Pro Wrestling in the most intense, physical, and groundbreaking event in years. Who will survive when shit gets real?

Seth Rollins has been vocal in recent weeks defending WWE, and his thoughts on Jon Moxley leaving the company for All Elite Wrestling.

During today’s SummerSlam conference call Rollins added his thoughts on Moxley’s departure, implying he is taking money out of his pocket by joining the competition.

“I was surprised by it. I knew Ambrose needed time away from WWE,” Rollins stated. “Now he’s competition and trying to take dinner off my table & good on him.”

Rollins didn’t pull any punches on the WWE vs. AEW war that is on the horizon. He was very blunt in stating WWE will knock AEW ‘dead”, just like they have done with other promotions in the past.

We are going to knock them dead, just like we do everyone else.” – Seth Rollins on AEW

All Elite Wrestling is scheduled to announce more details on their weekly television program , which is expected to begin on Wednesday October 2, 2019 on TNT.
