IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley recently did an interview with New Japan Pro Wrestling where he spoke about a wide range of topics.
During the interview, Moxley spoke about Shinsuke Nakamura and his thoughts on how Nakamura’s WWE career is going so far.
“Well, Shinsuke Nakamura is in WWE and doing very well. I never got to wrestle him sadly, but he heard that I was likely going over to be in the G1 and he was very pleased, said it was a great life experience. Karl Anderson, who I’ve actually been friends with since I was 18, since we’re both from Cincinnati. I asked him about the G1, a few others as well, and everybody was great and said ‘yeah, go for it’.
I think he’s doing great there. Fans love him. It’s a different style, but he fits in well because he is charismatic, he is flamboyant. He can go, so whether it’s a New Japan ring or a WWE one he can do well anywhere.”
Moxley will wrestle the likes of Taichi, Jeff Cobb, Tomohiro Ishii, and Robinson in the G1 Climax 29 tournament that starts next month.
