Next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite will present Blood and Guts, but the following week will deliver a potentially legendary match.
During tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, the broadcast team announced that on the May 12 edition of AEW Dynamite, Jon Moxley will defend his IWGP US Championship against none other than Yuji Nagata.
Nagata, 53, is a genuine superstar in the world of New Japan Pro-Wrestling, and he has won numerous titles throughout his illustrious career. He’ll now prepare to face Moxley in a huge match, marking the first time the two have been in the ring against each other. Moxley last defended his IWGP US Championship in February, when he defeated KENTA to retain the title.
The #ForbiddenDoor has been opened once again, as @tonyschiavone24 just confirmed that Wednesday, May 12 @JonMoxley will defend the #IWGP US Championship against the legendary Yuji Nagata (@nagata769) LIVE on #AEWDynamite at 8/7c on TNT!
