Moxley recently defended the IWGP US Championship against Karl Anderson at AEW Fyter Fest night one on July 14. Lance Archer defeated Moxley for the title the following week.
Archer will defend the IWGP gold against Hiroshi Tanahashi at NJPW Resurgence. A recent report revealed that it is likely that Moxley will face Tanahashi at AEW All Out on September 5.
NJPW Resurgence will be the first US NJPW event to feature a live crowd since last February’s New Beginning in the USA show.
