The Mightiest Test

Wheeler Yuta scored possibly the biggest win of his career, thus far, as he defeated Josh Woods to become the new ROH Pure Champion. However, just seven days removed from the monumental victory, Yuta battles “The Purveyor of Violence” Jon Moxley this Friday night on AEW RampageThe Blackpool Combat Club’s maestro William Regal has taken a liking to Yuta, especially after his gutsy performance against “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson.

Despite proving himself time after time, Wheeler has one more test ahead of him before he truly proves he’s worthy to stand alongside The Blackpool Combat Club. It will not be an easy feat to accomplish, as Yuta battles one of the toughest men ever to lace up a pair of wrestling boots, former AEW World Champion Moxley. Mox is not just going to lay down and roll over for Wheeler. He will give it his all, and test the might of the young upstart. Will Yuta be up for the challenge on AEW Rampage, or will Moxley separate the contenders from the pretenders?
