Update On Why Jon Moxley Will Not Work New Japan Dallas ShowJune 18, 2019
AEW has the right now not allow Moxley to work shows in the US.
Last night we got the full card for the first night of the G1 Climax that will be taking place in Dallas, Texas. When looking at the card, G1 29 competitor Jon Moxley was missed from the lineup. New Japan did release a statement regarding Moxley not being on the show.
Jon Moxley to Miss G1 Opener, Press Conference 【G129】
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.
Moxley will join the G1 tour on July 13 in Tokyo.
We apologize to fans who were looking forward to seeing Moxley in Dallas, and appreciate your understanding.
According to Dave Meltzer on Monday’s Observer Radio, Meltzer stated that the reason Moxley is not on the show is because All Elite Wrestling would not allow it. AEW has the authority to deny Moxley the right to work shows in the United States. Meltzer would go on to say that any New Japan show in the United States will most likely not feature Moxley, Jericho and Omega as well.
As far as them working for New Japan in Japan, as long as the dates do not clash with any date AEW needs them, then they are able to work the shows. Moxley will join the roster for the remainder of the G1 tournament on July 13 which is the first night of B Block competition.
