NJPW star Juice Robinson will make his AEW Dynamite debut next week.
During tonight’s Grand Slam edition of AEW Rampage, it was announced that Robinson will wrestle new AEW World Champion Jon Moxley in a World Title Eliminator match next Wednesday night. Robinson will earn a future title mach if he can beat Moxley at Dynamite.
Robinson, who is engaged to AEW Interim Women’s World Champion Toni Storm, made a surprise appearance at the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view in June, during a brief backstage segment with Tony Schiavone and IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jay White
It is not yet known if this will mean more AEW dates for Robinson, but he revealed earlier this year that he has signed a contract extension with NJPW, keeping him signed until 2023. The former WWE talent returned to Impact Wrestling during Victory Tonight’s Road special from Nashville, TN. He teamed up with fellow Bullet Club members Ace Austin and Chris Bey to defeat former Gut Check winners Shogun, Jason Hotch and Jack Price in six-man action during the Countdown To Victory Road pre-show.
As noted, Moxley will defend himself against “Hangman” Adam Page at the Tuesday Night Dynamite on October 18 from Cincinnati, OH. Page earned the title by winning the Golden Ticket Battle Royale on Rampage.
