NJPW Strips Jon Moxley of IWGP US Heavyweight Championship

New Japan Pro-Wrestling has announced that the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship has been declared vacant, due to Jon Moxley’s inability to travel to Japan to defend the Championship as a result of Typhoon Hagibis.

Jon Moxley was originally scheduled to defend the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship today against Juice Robinson at NJPW’s King of Pro-Wrestling 2019 event. Juice Robinson will now compete against Lance Archer for the vacant IWGP US Heavyweight Championship. The match will have a sixty-minute time limit.
