Moxley will also be joined by AEW star Eddie Kingston to face Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer in the New Japan Strong Showdown on November 27. The show takes place at the former ECW Arena in Philadelphia.
The match is reserved for the Philly Street Fight. New Japan announced this and other big matches in their English language Website. There he gave fans a preview of the huge match.
“Hardcore’s iconic home, the 2300 Arena, gets the main event right this week as Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer face Eddie Kingston and John Moxley.
Reconnecting with AEW’s Lance Archer in the process, the two faced Max and Kingston in New York, causing a sudden Suzuki-gun defeat on the NY native Homicide. While NJPW is seeking a replay on the turf, the four are now ready to clash in a violent battle with no disqualifications or countouts, and the sole function of the referee is to decide by pinfall, submission or knockout.
Moxley entered an inpatient rehabilitation program with alcohol abuse in early November. They are said to be doing well and taking the steps needed to get better.
The former AEW champion has embraced the thrill of support for his decision to seek help. When they return, they are sure to receive a hero’s welcome.
