KUSHIDA Leaving New Japan Pro Wrestling

NJPW is holding a post-Wrestle Kingdom 13 Press Conference today and it was announced KUSHIDA will be leaving the company at the end of the month.

NJPW Announcer Chris Charlton translated some of KUSHIDA's comments about "heading overseas."

As previously reported, Kenny Omega also announced that he will be leaving NJPW.

As noted, WWE had reportedly shown interest in the former IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion, potentially bringing him into NXT.

During his time with NJPW, KUSHIDA was a six-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion, two-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, and two-time winner of Best of the Super Juniors.
