Josh its bulls--- you aren't going to be on New Japan on AXS anymore. You could have taught all the noobs about great wrestlers like Murakami and Fujita— Kevin (@darukinoi) August 24, 2018
I am only missing the one Long Beach show as I will be in Japan cornering a fighter I coach on the same date.— Josh Barnett (@JoshLBarnett) August 24, 2018
I promise I'll be in Long Beach on September 30th— Kevin Kelly (@realkevinkelly) August 23, 2018
