Jon Moxley recently did an interview with New Japan Pro Wrestling. The IWGP Untied States Champion shared his thoughts on Shinsuke Nakamura and performing in the G1 Climax.
“Well, Shinsuke Nakamura is in WWE and doing very well. I never got to wrestle him sadly, but he heard that I was likely going over to be in the G1 and he was very pleased, said it was a great life experience. Karl Anderson, who I’ve actually been friends with since I was 18, since we’re both from Cincinnati. I asked him about the G1, a few others as well, and everybody was great and said ‘yeah, go for it.”
