Powell’s POV: NJPW previously announced that Jon Moxley will not appear on this show despite being in the G1 tournament. Join me for live coverage on as the show airs on AXS-TV beginning at 5CT/6ET. It is listed as a four-hour event on the AXS-TV website. Dot Net Members will hear my audio review afterward.
