What's the story?

Jon Moxley, formerly known as WWE’s Dean Ambrose, immediately made an impact at AEW Double or Nothing by attacking Chris Jericho, the referee, and Kenny Omega in his first non-WWE appearance since departing last month.

Well, it doesn't look like the former WWE Champion will be holding back or committing to anything too quickly with Mox seemingly confirming he'll also be heading to Japan in his second teaser video.

In case you didn't know…

Dean Ambrose left WWE when his contract with the company expired at the end of April 2019 with WWE confirming the former WWE Champion's departure back in January following the Royal Rumble.

Moxley teased an appearance at AEW's Double or Nothing in May with a viral video before his shock appearance after the Chris Jericho vs Kenny Omega match on the show. Mox would emerge from the crowd to attack both men.

Posters have now emerged online showing Jon Moxley, formerly Dean Ambrose, on a non-WWE poster for the first time since leaving the company, confirming a match against Pentagon Jr. for Northeast Wrestling in New York. WWE's Renee Young, Moxley's wife, is also booked on the show.

The heart of the matter

Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose, now wrestling under his previous moniker of Jon Moxley, has released another teaser video on Twitter, this time seemingly confirming that he'll be appearing at NJPW's June 5th show in Ryogoku Kokugikan, AKA Ryogoku Sumo Hall, Tokyo.

What's next?

Jon Moxley has been confirmed for a match with Pentagon Jr. in August, and is scheduled to compete at Fyter Fest in June - but it looks like his next appearance may very well be in Japan in just over a week!
