New Japan Pro Wrestling star KENTA of the Bullet Club attacked Jon Moxley at the end of this week’s AEW Dynamite. This happened after The Good Brothers and Kenny Omega defeated Rey Fenix, PAC, and Jon Moxley when Doc Gallows pinned Fenix.

KENTA is the #1 contender for the IWGP United States Title and is scheduled to face Moxley at NJPW New Beginning on February 26.

The match was set up after Moxley confronted KENTA at the NJPW Strong event. It has not been reported that there is a working relationship between AEW and NJPW, but this is a strong indication that the door has opened.
