Moxley and Homicide to be featured at Independence Day.
Next month, the New Japan STRONG brand is running a two-day event on July 4th and 5th titled Independence Day at Korakuen Hall.
The company posted a video from El Desperado, who issued a challenge to AEW’s Jon Moxley. He wants a rematch to follow up on their bout from Music City Mayhem from the summer of 2022 where Moxley defeated him via referee stoppage.
Moxley responded to the challenge and stated that he’ll be at the Independence Day events and is bringing former ROH World Champion Homicide with him to tag against Desperado and a partner of his choosing. Desperado is a member of the Strong Style faction with Ren Narita and Minoru Suzuki.
As of this writing, here’s the updated Independence Day lineups:
- IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships: Catch 2/2 (Francesco Akira & TJP) (c) vs. Clark Connors & Dan Moloney
- NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship: KENTA (c) vs. Eddie Kingston
