NJPW star leaving and possibly joining WWE Submitted by Aaron Rift on 01/07/2019 at 11:10 AM
It was announced that New Japan Pro Wrestling star KUSHIDA will be leaving the promotion at the end of the month. Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com recently noted the following about WWE being interested in KUSHIDA:
“Unlike other New Japan guys who they are after, this is one where the confidence level is at the point where it’s being talked about more prominently.”
“At least one idea has been talked about which would involve him at NXT.”
Thanks to thesun.co.uk for the quotes.
KUSHIDA: As Sugabayashi said, I will leave NJPW on January 31. This was an extremely tough condition made with Meij, Sugabayashi and Kidani. It was a very big decision in my life and I’m thankful they understood. I will head overseas and to see the world of pro wrestling.
