Jon Moxley discussed his AEW Dynamite match with Yuji Nagata in a new SI interview, saying top WWE names have texted him regarding the match.
“You would not believe the amount of texts I received from people in every company, every single one, even people that don’t normally text, saying, ‘I can’t believe you get to work with Nagata,’” Moxley said. “That’s only reinforced what a privilege it is to share the ring with him on Strong and Dynamite. We’re at a point here where anything can happen. We have the opportunity to see a legend here in Nagata. It makes me think of what else is possible.”
He added about the match with the NJPW star, “When you get down to the brass tacks, what this comes down to is two guys that are going to stand in the ring and try to f—— kill each other. This dude is the definition of fighting spirit, what New Japan’s all about, and I don’t roll over for anybody. We’re going to take our shots and see who falls down first, and it could very well be me. But to be dropped by one of the greatest to ever do it, then what a way to go out. If this is the end of my U.S. title run, then I’m going out in a blaze of glory, trading shots with a legend, live on Dynamite. He doesn’t f— around, I don’t f— around. I’m pretty stoked about it.” WWE Legend Calls Jon Moxley ‘Future Drug Addict.’
