As we neared the next AEW PPV, many have wondered who Moxley will be sharing the ring with. For a short while it looked like the newly minted IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi would be a possible opponent. It turns out that’s not the case, as Tanahashi will defend his title against Kota Ibushi in Japan on September 4th.
During the August 25th edition of Dynamite, Jon Moxley announced that his all- Out opponent will be Satoshi Kojima.

“So we’re getting FedEx back from Tokyo today. A contract signed, sealed and delivered. Just one, just one with the balls to kick through the door, just one with the balls to chase the boogeyman in New Japan Pro Wrestling. We know who it wasn’t. So I look at this name and wish I had worn glasses because I had fitted them. I couldn’t believe it.
“Kojima Satoshi. And I thought, ‘Man, what a treat for the fans in Chicago to see a legend of New Japan, a legend of All Japan live and in person.’ It was a real treat for the fans and then I started to think about it. I said, ‘Damn it, I’m offended. That crazy old man wants to get in the ring and walk me from head to toe? ”
Kojima is a former two-time IWGP heavyweight champion in NJPW and a former two-time Triple Crown heavyweight champion in AJPW. Although he hasn’t been booked as a main eventer in Japan for over a decade, Kojima can still go into the ring.
Moxley is no stranger to top talent from Japan. He was a two-time IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion. He even took part in the G1 Climax in 2019.
