Tetsuya Naito Says He Will Offer His G1 Climax Spot To Jon Moxley If He Loses At Forbidden Door

NJPW star Tetsuya Naito recently spoke with Tokyo Sports on a number of topics including how if he loses to Jon Moxley at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door he will offer his spot in the G1 Climax.

Naito said, “I wonder if they didn’t offer him the tournament, or if they did and he turned them down.” “I don’t know if Moxley will have the schedule open, or if New Japan will approve it. However, there have been cases in the past where it was approved (when Satoshi Kojima handed it over to Hiroyoshi Tenzan before the 2016 tournament).”

“If I don’t get the belt back, the IWGP World Champion who has beaten me consecutively will be a much more deserving opponent than me. After all, it’s a Grade 1 fight.”
