After AEW star Jon Moxley was previously announced for an appearance at NJPW Dominion event, we now know exactly what he will be doing on June 4, and it seems like he won’t be travelling to Japan alone.

At the Best of Super Juniors final event, Shota Umino announced that he will be teaming up with the Blackpool Combat Club’s Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli.
While the team’s opponents are not yet known, it’s worth noting that at the recent NJPW STRONG Resurgence event on May 21 that Umino tagged with Moxley and fellow BCC member Wheeler Yuta to face off against Kazuchika Okada, Rocky Romero and Tomohiro Ishii.
Because of this, it has been speculated that Umino and the BCC will face off against the CHAOS faction once again, only this time on Japanese soil.

The full card of NJPW Dominion is set to be announced on May 29 so we will not have too long to wait and find out the answer.
AEW and NJPW are of course, no stranger to crossovers, however, around this time of year there is more spotlight than ever on the interactions between stars form the two companies due to the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2 event on June 25.

'While Castagnoli did wrestle on the 2022 Forbidden Door card, his match at Dominion is slated to be his first NJPW match that isn’t taking place in a crossover capacity.
While no matches have been announced for Forbidden Door 2023, It is expected that the build to the show will begin as soon as this Wednesday’s May 31 Dynamite, when Sunday’s AEW Double or Nothing event is in the rear-view mirror.
