It has been confirmed that New Japan legend Minoru Suzuki will meet Jon Moxley on Dynamite after confronting the former AEW Champion at AEW All Out.
At All Out Moxley went to war with another Japanese legend in the form of Satoshi Kojima. After a stunningly hard-hitting contest Moxley eventually emerged victorious, hitting two Paradigm Shifts to finally floor his rival.
As Moxley celebrated, “Kaze Ni Nare” played to a thunderous ovation from the capacity crowd. Minoru Suzuki made his way to the ring getting straight in Moxley’s face. The pair traded hard strikes before Suzuki wrapped Moxley up in a rear-naked choke and left him laying with a piledriver.
It was announced later in the show that the two will meet in Moxley’s home town of Cincinnati on September 8th.

Elsewhere on the show, Ruby Soho will make her Dynamite debut. The former WWE Superstar made an instant impact at All Out debuting as the ‘Joker’ in the Women’s Casino Battle Royale. Soho, who was visibly moved by the crowd’s reaction to her entrance, went all the way in the bout finally eliminating Thunder Rosa to claim a memorable win.
With victory, Soho earned herself a shot at the AEW Women’s World Championship.
It has also been announced that Dustin Rhodes will take on Malakai Black. Rhodes is looking to avenge the defeat of his brother as well as Nightmare Family member Lee Johnson.
