When did Jon Moxley join NJPW?
The day after his debut for All Elite Wrestling at their inaugural pay-per-view Double or Nothing, Jon Moxley revealed himself as the mysterious Death Rider who had been tormenting Juice Robinson for months before it eventually led to an IWGP US Title match between the duo.
At the Best of the Super Juniors 2019 finals, Moxley made his in-ring debut for NJPW and defeated Robinson to win the IWGP US Championship in his first win for the promotion.
The win also marked Moxley's first title win since leaving WWE, as he eventually entered the G1 Climax 29 Tournament and secured vital wins over the likes of Tetsuya Naito, Tomohiro Ishii, and Shingo Takagi in the tournament.
