– Kevin Kelly interviewed The IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship, Jon Moxley. Moxley has heard every single thing Kenta has said about him over the last couple of months. It doesn’t matter who’s carrying briefcases or politicking around because someone has to go through him in order to become the US Champion. He’s obviously not a big fan of Bullet Club and what they stand for. Moxley wants the real Kenta to show up at February 26th.
