As noted, WWE officials reportedly have great interest in signing IWGP United States Champion Juice Robinson, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Juice was previously signed to the WWE NXT brand and used the name CJ Parker. He requested his release and WWE confirmed the departure on April 3rd, 2015.
Robinson had recently addressed the idea of him going back to WWE and according to him, he's never going back.
"Fast-forward three years, WWE / NXT, all that s---, everything that you guys constantly ask me about, I know because that's what we talk about," Robinson said. "That's what we talk about, we talk about WWE, but that's in the rear view mirror now, and guess what? I ain't goin' back. I ain't ever going back. It's okay because guys like Cody Rhodes, guys like Kenny Omega, more guys like that, Will Ospreay. 'Big stars, big independent stars!' Independent? You can take that and shove it up your ass, they's stars, baby. And I might not be a star yet, but I'm getting there. So titles do matter and guess what Canyon Ceman? I'm doing my damnedest to make myself a star.
