In a recent interview with New Japan Pro Wrestling, Juice Robinson called out Jon Moxley for his performances as the IWGP United States Champion.
Robinson has held the title on two previous occasions, and during his interview, he complained about the fact other champions such as Moxley and Cody Rhodes haven’t defended the title.
“Of course. It’s like with Cody. I’m the only one who defends that title,” said Robinson. “Cody had it for a cup of coffee, now Moxley. They win the title and just sit at home. How many times did Cody defend it?”
“He limped out and they canceled it. That’s not what a champion is. And what’s Moxley done? Sat on his ass, getting his triceps stapled up. Injuries happen, but at least when I had that belt I defended it as much as I could. I was on the road up and down Japan, a fighting champion, and damn it, I should be the champion again. Forever. When you think of titles, you think of people. Like when you think of Ricky Steamboat you think of him as an Intercontinental Champion. Think of the IWGP title and you think of Okada, or Tanahashi. I want people to think of me when they think of the US Championship.”
The two men will collide in a no disqualification match for the title tomorrow at the King of Pro-Wrestling event in Ryogoku Kokugikan.
