Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter- When John Laurinaitis was in Japan for the recent WWE shows, people in the Japanese wrestling business who aren't aware that he lost his real-life powers in the company came to see him and were pitching ideas about how their promotion could serve as a Japanese territory for WWE. The ideas pitched by promoters were that WWE would support their territory, send American wrestlers over where to work a full-time schedule as well as sign promising Japanese talents and use them on WWE TV. No word if there's any interest from WWE but likely not right now.
