Jon Moxley will not be part of the NJPW G1 Climax 29 opener that will take place on Saturday on the 6th of July at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. This was announced by New Japan Pro Wrestling officially. Jon Moxley is the current IWGP United Stated Champion.
NJPW made the announcement at a press conference just before the event. Moxley’s absence from these events is a big one as NJPW is expanding into the United States and Moxley is not a part of it. Moxley will be part of a month-long round-robin style tournament.
He will be in the B Block but it will not begin before the 13th of July, which will be a Saturday. The official announcement is given below: “Jon Moxley to Miss G1 Opener, Press Conference Jon Moxley has been confirmed as a participant of G1 CLIMAX 29.
Unfortunately, Moxley will miss the G1 CLIMAX 29 Opening Day taking place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX on July 6, 2019. Additionally, he will not be in attendance at the G1 CLIMAX 29 Press Conference taking place on July 5, 2019.
