The real question is simple — who will win? Moxley has been unstoppable since his return to pro wrestling earlier this year. Ospreay has watched himself lose some key matchups recently including one in the New Japan Cup against Zack Sabre Jr., eliminating him from the tournament. Ospreay does have an upcoming IWGP United States Championship match, however, so this could be his best way to show he’s ready to take the title by beating the belt’s longest-reigning champion. No matter who wins, expect a great main event.
Ospreay, despite his many critics, continues to make waves in the squared circle with his gravity-defining athleticism and hard-hitting offense. “The Commonwealth Kingpin” has done it all so far in his NJPW career and currently leads The United Empire, which has only scratched the surface in terms of its dominance. When it comes to accolades for Ospreay, they are surely not hard to find. Currently, he reigns as both the RevPro Undisputed British Heavyweight Champion and Warrior Wrestling Champion. His past title reigns include being a three-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, one-time NEVER Openweight Champion, and a former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion. To say this match has all the makings to be special might be an understatement.
