For months, Kenta had called out Jon to cash-in on his mandated IWGP United States Championship opportunity. He had even stated that Moxley had defended his title less than he defended the briefcase. Kenta finally got the chance to fight Jon on The New Beginning In the USA edition of NJPW STRONG.

As reported by comicbook, Jon Moxley took down Kenta by nailing a DDT on his No. 1 contender’s briefcase early on in the match. He was later seen driving the champ through a table with a diving elbow. Moxley eventually put him away with a series of offences like a DDT, followed by his Death Rider finisher.

Reacting to Jon Moxley’s win, one fan wrote on Twitter, “Jon Moxley retains the US title! This was a very surprising outcome. I wonder if Moxley plans to visit Japan more frequently now. That would be fantastic. Great effort from Kenta. #MOXvsKENTA” Another user wrote, “What a match What a war Jon Moxley is Still IWGP United States Champion”

Jon Moxley first won the IWGP United States Champion in his debut match in June 2019 but was forced to relinquish it due to travel issues later the same year. Jon regained the title by beating Lance Archer at the Wrestle Kingdom 14 and then successfully defended it against Juice Robinson and Minoru Suzuki.
