Moxley retains the IWGP US title after a brawl with Kenta at NJPW Strong – WWE Sports

when Jon Moxley appeared on January 29th NJPW Strong To set up his first IWGP US title defense in almost a year, many thought it was a way to remove the belt from him.

The pandemic made it almost impossible for him to do much with New Japan in 2020. Mox will be a father for the first time in a few months while COVID restrictions are being relaxed. He will probably limit his travels soon. KENTA has been the number one candidate since August last year. Since then, he has been carrying the IWGP US Championship story himself.So NJPW’s first AEW messenger, Kenta seemed ready to do big things in 2021. Their showdown on Friday, February 26 strong It seemed like a logical time to make a title change.

The suspense created by that idea helped make the confrontation of their main event a thrilling event. So they were the way two guys kicked each other’s ass for 15 minutes.

Mox challenged Kenta with a bell, and it didn’t take long for the action to spill on the floor. When the champion put a member of the Bullet Club on a pile drive, a challenge briefcase appeared, but was blocked and DDTed himself.

Running off the stage, Mox had a chance to repay Kenta. Double stomp him through the table above dynamite Early this monthHowever, it was again the American who ended up with debris on his back.

After that, the two men barely beat 20 counts, and KENTA seemed to hone Mox. First pinfall, then double stomp, then submission. However, the champion avoided GTS and survived the game over. A fierce strike from Moxley put Kenta on the rope. He gave a rebellious middle finger salute, but was unable to kick after the Deslider.

This was common sense as an intermediate point for Moxley’s parental leave tours. Instead, it continues to govern the longest IWGP US title in history. KENTA lost and looked terrible, but the six-month quest was still defeated.

What’s next for which person? The forbidden door remains open, so the possibilities seem endless …
