For weeks New Japan Pro Wrestling has been airing videos featuring a mystery man with a knife, seemingly targeting Juice Robinson. The videos not only feature the mystery man watching Robinson on a television screen but they have only aired when Robinson has been present at the NJPW live event taking place. You can view the vignette in the video above.
Rumors have swirled over who the mystery man might be and he was set to be revealed on June 5 at the Best of Super Juniors Final. Well, the cat has been let out of the bag a bit early.
Yes, Jon Moxley is headed to NJPW.
Moxley (formerly Dean Ambrose in WWE) has been the talk of the wrestling world in the past 24 hours ever since he showed up at AEW Double or Nothing on Saturday night. It was announced following the event that he had signed a full-time contract with the promotion, although AEW President Tony Khan stated Moxley would be able to take "international and Indy" dates during the summer before AEW starts a weekly television schedule in the fall.
Moments before revealing his identity as the NJPW mystery man, Moxley cut his first promo in AEW. You can view the promo by clicking here.
