Fite’s Twitter

Nora’s dad returns to AEW next week, for the first time since she was born. And he’s bringing his New Japan title with him.

Original Bullet Club member Karl Anderson, who’s return to the NJPW fold along with Good Brother Doc Gallows was announced last month, challenged the returning Jon Moxley to put his IWGP United States title on the line at night one of Fyter Fest in Austin, Texas.

The match was made official shortly thereafter, and is one of several announced for the July 14 broadcast. Moxley vs. Anderson will be on the card along with:

- Christian Cage vs. Matt Hardy in their first singles match since a SmackDown house show in 2010

- Darby Allin vs. Ethan Page in the Coffin Match that was moved off of this week’s show

- Ricky Starks returning remarkably fast from a neck fracture to face FTW champ Brian Cage

- Penelope Ford vs. Yuka Sakazaki

- Hangman Page speaks regarding his inevitable match with World champ Kenny Omega

The following week’s Fyter Fest night two show will feature Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. defending the Women’s title against Nyla Rose in Dallas.
