Jon Moxley Match Added To Wrestle Kingdom 14

132

Wrestle Kingdom 14 is slated to take place on January 4th and 5th, 2020 from the Tokyo Dome. A huge match was just broken by Dave Meltzer via Twitter as Jon Moxley will challenge Lance Archer in a Texas Death Match:

It should be noted that the two were supposed to battle for the U.S. Title on October 14th, 2019, but Moxley had to relinquish due to not being able to make it because of Typhoon Higabis. It is not currently known which night they will be facing one another. This is also rumored to be Moxley’s final appearance as his contract with NJPW is up following the event. The following are also scheduled matches as of now:
