Young Bucks comment on WWE; NJPW expansion Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/06/2018 at 10:59 PM
NJPW held a press conference on Friday to promote their G1 Special in San Francisco. During the conference, NJPW President Harold Meij announced the company will return to Long Beach, CA on September 30th for The Fighting Spirit Unleashed. It was also announced that two events called The Lion’s Break on November 10th and 11th at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Kenny Omega commented on where he would like to see NJPW visit:
“I mean, this might sound strange, but maybe a place like Alaska? The reason why I say that is because geographically it might be the most difficult place for citizens of Alaska to travel outside of to get to [shows],” Omega said. “Like I said, I feel like if we’re already making the strides to visit these new and exciting places, I want to make it as fair as possible for everyone to get to places we’re going to. Of course, we can’t travel to every state, we can’t travel to every country, but for ease of travel and to spread our wealth – so to speak – it would be cool to do that. I’m not sure how much wrestling is in Alaska. I know they have independent promotions, but for me that sounds exciting and I think we’d reach a lot of new people and the people there would probably also appreciate it, as well.”
The Young Bucks also commented on possibly signing with WWE:
“Contract season is coming up, we’ll see what happens. It’s for our families, that’s basically what I think it comes down to at this point.”
