For the first time in over three years, Jon Moxley was back in Japan for NJPW and he has vowed that he will be back in the country soon.
At Dominion Moxley teamed with his BCC colleague Claudio Castagnoli and Shota Umino to challenge Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, and Hiroshi Tanahashi for the NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Championship but the champions retained.
Speaking in the arena after he, Castagnoli, and Umino were defeated and promised he’d be back in Japan:
“A couple kids, a couple trips to rehab later, here we are. Every single time I come back to Japan, I will give you my absolute best, just like Claudio will, just like Shooter will. I am so goddamned glad to be back in Japan. This is a place where fighting spirit is revered, this is a place where fighting spirit pays off in the ring, in that magical moment where blood and sweat and will and guts and all that sh*t mixes into one.
“It’s the greatest f*cking drug in the world. I love that sh*t. F*ck yeah. We’ll wrestle again. I got f*cking plans. I got a f*cking resident card now. I know Okada has been f*cking with the visa thing and trying to get our sh*t stopped up. But I got the card now. I’ll come back whenever the f*ck I want. Thank you, Japan.”
Jon Moxley then appeared to set up a huge match for Forbidden Door as he explained that he believes adamantly that Bryan Danielson is a better wrestler than Okada.
