Source: WWE interested in three New Japan stars

Jan 5, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

Dave Meltzer is reporting that OKADA, Naito, and Kushida (pictured) are rumored to be leaving NJPW soon. WWE are VERY interested in all three.

“Naito would be one of the three (at least) Japanese top guys feelers have been sent to. The other two that we’re aware of didn’t turn the offers down without thought although one would be a huge surprise and the other would be a great worker who I didn’t see flourishing in the WWE system, but also probably wouldn’t have any reservations about moving to the U.S. like many of the Japanese might.”

It was rumored in October that many stars were unhappy with the new NJPW management because they made the environment “less fun”. NJPW President Harold Meji denied the report.
