On the February 26 episode of NJPW Strong, Moxley defended his title against KENTA. The Bullet Club member had previously appeared on AEW Dynamite, teaming with Kenny Omega to wrestle Moxley and Lance Archer.
As of writing, NJPW competitors are scheduled to compete for both AEW and IMPACT. NJPW president Takami Ohbari has recently revealed why he is allowing contracted stars to wrestle for other promotions.
