According to MLW Radio, several big New Japan Pro Wrestling talents have given their notices to the company. Among those rumored to be leaving New Japan are AJ Styles, Shisuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows.
According to Meltzer, Styles had been working without a contract, despite being booked in a major match on the company's biggest show. Styles has been pretty clear that he's open to going to WWE or NXT if the financial aspect added up.
I spoke to "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson recently, and asked him about the idea of joining the WWE.
"Yeah, I've had lots of conversations (with WWE). I don't want to give the cliche answer and say business is business. If the right offer came along, you never know what could happen. I love New Japan, I love wrestling in Japan and I love the fans and how comfortable I am over there. I've been there for 8 years, but if the right offer came, I'm not scared to come to America," Anderson said.
We'll have more on this situation as it develops.
