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.
