New Japan sent out a press release regarding Moxley’s debut yesterday:
“Jon Moxley will be appearing in Ryogoku Sumo Hall June 5 with apparent designs on IWGP US Heavyweight champion, Juice Robinson. Moxley previously saw worldwide fame as a WWE ‘Grand Slam’ Champion and member of top-flight faction The Shield under the name Dean Ambrose,” the release reads.
Tony Khan clarified Moxley’s AEW contract status during the post-Double or Nothing media scrum:
“He is a multi-year contract, he will be on a full-time deal,” Khan said. “When we go weekly, he’s going to be full-time. Same as some of the guys, especially when the schedule is light, I’m open to him working some international and indie dates. He is full-time with us, domestically, essentially he’s our guy.’”
