NJPW has announced the rules for the Lance Archer vs. Jon Moxley Texas Death Match at Wrestle Kingdom 14.
Archer’s IWGP United States Championship will be on the line and the only way to win is to knockout your opponent so they can’t answer a 10-count or to make them submit. There can be no pinfalls and no disqualifications.
Moxley had to vacate the championship back in October when travel delays kept him from making the King of Pro Wrestling event where he was scheduled to defend against Juice Robinson. In his place, Lance Archer took on Robinson and won the vacated title.
The Moxley/Archer Death Match is slated for night one of Wrestle Kingdom 14, which takes place on January 4th from the Tokyo Dome.
