Savvy move to put that Juice/Mox match in there if the Juice to Impact speculation proves true. One of the best matches of Juice’s career, and with someone the non-NJPW die-hard audience will definitely recognize and view as credible.

If you havent watched an of these, they are all must watch… Except for the Moxley/Juice match. Personally, Im not a huge fan of Jon and this match wasnt that good to me.
