Naito says NO to the WWE
Stop the presses and slap yourselves, my numpties, because New Japan Pro Wrestling’s(#NJPW) first Triple Crown Champion Tetsuya #Naito turned down a WWE offer after the Dominion PPV! He will proudly stay with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Tokyo Sports’ interview with the man himself revealed all:
Chris Charlton gives us our English translation:
‘I didn’t even give it thought. This New Japan ring is already the world’s number 1 stage. The fans know this. That’s why I think we should focus on our home crowd before looking international’

And that’s the real deal, guys! When some of the best in the world (Naito, #KennyOmega, Osprey) are spurning #WWE for the “independent” companies that gave them their come-ups, it widens wrestling for all of us, so I’m glad to hear Naito-san is content and ready to keep thrilling us from the land of the Rising Sun!
Lauren Goodnight thinks you’re all numpties.
