“The Death Rider” meets “The Aerial Assassin” for the first time ever at NJPW Windy City Riot on Saturday, April 16th.

Will Ospreay first called Moxley out at a Revolution Pro Wrestling event in February. Moxley retorted saying he may never have seen a wrestler more talented than Ospreay, but it might be time for Moxley to beat some humility into him.

“On April 16, I’m going to pound Will Ospreay into the mat like a railroad spike,” Moxley said. “We can do it at New Japan Windy City Riot or we can do it in the parking lot. Either way, it’s all the same to me.”

NJPW announced on Thursday that Windy City Riot will air live on Fite TV as a pay-per-view.

Windy City Riot will be held at the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, Illinois. No other matches have been officially announced for the shows as of yet, though the following names are advertised to appear: Jon Moxley, Minoru Suzuki, Will Ospreay, Jay White, Tomohiro Ishii, Tom Lawlor, Jeff Cobb, Juice Robinson, David Finlay, Yuji Nagata, Fred Rosser, JONAH, Brody King, Karl Fredricks, Clark Connors, Hikuleo, Rocky Romero, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson, and The Great-O-Khan.
