Jon Moxley Set For Unique Stipulation Match During NJPW Title Defense

Jon Moxley IWGP NJPW World Champion

Jon Moxley has a big IWGP World Title match and it will have a big stipulation.

At AEW Double or Nothing in Las Vegas, the IWGP World Champion Jon Moxley defeated Konosuke Takeshita in an Eliminator Match. The reason it wasn’t a title match is because Moxley has an upcoming title defense at a major NJPW show.

That NJPW show is the major event called Dominion on Sunday, June 9th in Osaka, Japan. It has been made official by NJPW that Moxley’s match at Dominion will see him defend the IWGP World Heavyweight Title against evil in a Lumberjack Death Match.

The Lumberjack Death Match is a unique stipulation that EVIL requested in an interview on NJPW’s website. After the request by EVIL, NJPW made it official.

NJPW Dominion takes place on Sunday, June 9th. It will stream on NJPW World at 3 a.m. Eastern time. The current card for the event looks like this.

  • IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley defends against EVIL in a lumberjack deathmatch
  • NJPW World TV Champion Jeff Cobb vs. Tomohiro Ishii
  • NEVER Openweight Champion Shingo Takagi vs. HENARE
  • Best of the Super Juniors 31 finals: A Block winner vs. B Block winner
  • Provisional KOPW 2024 Champion Yuya Uemura vs. Great-O-Khan
  • IWGP Tag Team & NJPW Strong Tag Team title elimination match: KENTA & Chase Owens vs. El Phantasmo & Hikuleo vs. Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI vs. Mikey Nicholls & Shane Haste

Jon Moxley Is Not A Fan Of Popular Social Media App

When it comes to social media, the IWGP World Champion Jon Moxley is not a fan of a lot of it, especially Twitter/X.

“I don’t like Twitter at all. It’s hard to escape it because everything that’s in the news about any subject is about something somebody said or did on Twitter. So I’m gonna hear about it. It’s impossible to escape. If it’s not Twitter, it’s something else. I feel like Twitter particularly, it brings the worst out of everyone, and it’s the worst version of everyone, it’s the worst way for people to interact. I think everyone should just drop it.”

“I’ll keep it for emergencies, just in case, say I get lost or something, and my only communication to the world is like, ‘Here are my coordinates. Somebody find me.’ Or for some reason I need to say something to the world, it could be useful, and I don’t want anybody to steal it and start pretending to be. So I keep it, for an emergency.”

“My advice to the entire world would be, get off that f*cking thing. Take it off your phone. Throw it in the garbage. We don’t need Twitter.”

Jon Moxley picked up another win on AEW Dynamite in Los Angeles when he defeated Rocky Romero.
