NJPW: KUSHIDA Leaving, Ibushi Injury Update, Juice Robinson & Rocky Romero Sign New Deals


KUSHIDA announced at a press conference yesterday that he is leaving NJPW.

There have been rumors that WWE is interested in him.

Kota Ibushi Update

Kota Ibushi was stretchered out after his match against Will Ospreay at Wrestle Kingdom 13 on Friday and it was later reported that he has a concussion, but that it is not serious.

The stretcher spot was a work and was always planned, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, to do an injury angle that would have Ibushi take some time off. But the concussion is actually legit, and he may also have a detached retina, which could be more serious than the concussion.

Juice Robinson Signs New NJPW Contract

Juice Robinson has signed a new three year contract with NJPW, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio.

Robinson was sought after by both WWE and AEW.

Rocky Romero Signs New NJPW Contract

Rocky Romero announced that he has also signed a “multi-year deal” with NJPW.
