We reported earlier this week that Lance Archer (Lance Hoyt in TNA) won the IWGP US title at NJPW’s King of Pro Wrestling event. He defeated Juice Robinson. Jon Moxley was forced to vacate the belt due to travel issues. Archer commented on his win, saying,
19+ yrs in wrestling. 3 major companies. (TNA,WWE,NJPW) 8+ yrs with @njpw1972 and on Oct 14th 2019 I was put in a unique position when an opportunity arose and won my first major singles title and became the 7th IWGP United States Champion! NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAM! KMSSL pic.twitter.com/eidqDpkjnZ
