Moxley is bringing a mystery partner to the L.A. Coliseum for NJPW Resurgence.

With just two weeks left until New Japan Pro-Wrestling presents their Resurgence show from the L.A. Coliseum, the match card is beginning to round out. New Japan pushed out an announcement on their digital platforms from Jon Moxley.

He stated that he will be present at Resurgence and he plans to bring a mystery partner to challenge the IMPACT Tag Team Champions Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson. Prior to that announcement being made, it was revealed that due to travel restrictions, Shota Umino will not be present at Resurgence or the Fighting Spirit Unleashed tapings on August 16th.

NJPW has received this message from @jonmoxley filmed after @AEW Dynamite this week!

The Death Rider is coming for The Good Brothers at #njresurgence, and he's bringing a surprise?!?

We apologise to fans looking forward to seeing Umino wrestle and appreciate your understanding.
