Kushida is also leaving New Japan and is most likely WWE bound. I really hate to see him leave, but I don’t see what else he can truly accomplish in New Japan right now.
JUICE Robinson has signed a 3 year deal to stay in New Japan. The WWE was said to be interested in bring him back, but NJPW’s offer was “real and ready to be signed”. I’m trying to decide who’s teeth I want to see the Left Hand Of God knock loose next!
New Japan chose to work exclusively with ROH instead of trying to bring AEW into the mix. I don’t see this hurting AEW as much as simply slowing them down as they get going.

Honestly if I were New Japan, I stay the hell away from AEW for at least a year. Just to let them get their feet under them. Then try and work out a deal.
As for Omega, chances are he's WWE bound. He's super hot right now and quite possibly young enough to keep for a long time. After what the WWE did with AJ, I would not be surprised if they did something similar with Omega.
Ironbite-but there's also the chance he'll stay with the Bucks and Cody.

I think it's a 50/50 split between AEW and WWE right now for Kenny.
The problem is, do you put him in NXT, or do you fast track him to the main roster like AJ?

Speaking of AEW, they just wrapped their announcement event in Jacksonville. The Youtube livestream of it went up to over 64000 viewers.
- Their next event is gonna be Double or Nothing on May 25, 2019, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
- The event after that is going to be in Jacksonville Florida, with a portion of the gate going to victims of gun violence.
- Confirmed signings for now: SCU, OWE, Britt Baker, MJF, Joey Janela, Penelope Ford, Pac, Hangman Page and Chris Jericho.
- Emphasis on diversity.
- Women will get equal pay compared to the male performers.
With that last one, I gotta wonder how many women are currently double-checking when their WWE contract is gonna run out.

im happy for MJF. ive been binging thru 2018 CZW (i still, after all these years, love that company...i cant help it...after ECW and before ROH they fed my love of blood, whacky storylines, excellt high flyers, etc...so they'll always have a special place in my heart)..,and MJFs work is up there with some of the best on the indies. His run as CZW champ was GREAT, he worked damn hard and had some excellent opponents...so good for him, i'm glad he gets to work on the next big stage in wrestling.

So Omega's free as of the end of this month. Time for a little Ironbite Introspective.
Obviously the best place for him is in AEW with the Bucks and Cody. He's friends with them, they all work well together and he is one of the biggest names out there. BUT! They did manage to snag Jericho. And Jericho probably has a nice price tag attached to his name because after all, the man is a G.O.A.T. So there might not be any money to sign the Cleaner even if he was willing to just go in on a friend rate. Cause this is a business to these guys and how they make money. So where does that leave us with Kenny Omega, future New Japan Hall of Famer?
Royal Rumble is on the 27th and we know that the WWE is not the same place it used to be. They treated AJ Styles like the wrestling royalty that he is from the moment he walked out at the Rumble. They gave him multiple WWE title runs, ok like two but both those title runs were lengthy and one even ran through Mania. I have no doubt Omega could be treated the exact same in the WWE as he's young, he's got a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge installed fanbase, and he's willing to work with anyone. Given the fact that he has no problems on the stick, no problem adapting his style to the WWE preferred style and could even bring in Kota Ibushi who was a standout in the Curiserweight Tournmen as a bonus
So where does Kenny go at the end of the month? I'm leaning towards AEW because of his ties to the Bucks and Cody. BUT! there's also the possibility he ends up in the WWE. So if he doesn't show up at the Rumble, look for him and Jericho to be the absolute faces of AEW when it does open up.
Ironbite-and hopefully gets a real TV deal.

Looks like Braun got pulled from his Rumble match with Brock because of his injury not healing fully yet, so we're getting FINN VS. BROCK.
HA HA HA DEMON TIME
Also, there's gonna be a match at the Chamber for the Raw Women's Titles, which...actually don't look half bad.

Ah, Billy Graham. Never stop being the rambling senile great-grandpa.
Well fans, just my professional opinion once more, and certainly nothing personal about any of the talent. But as you folks who watched RAW last night ( I didn't ) know that " The Monster Among Men " Braun Strowman has been pulled from the main event against Lesnar. Despite Strowman's superhuman strength and his ability to over turn paramedic trucks, 18 wheeler 10,000 pound cab trucks, and then overturn Vince's limo, he can't quite seem to beat a mere mortal in Brock Lesnar. So, now he has been replaced with less than 2 weeks before this mega PPV by Finn Balor. Does anyone in their right mind really believe Finn will have a chance in Hell of beating Lesnar ? I would want my money back immediately. Word is Finn Balor will spend 3 hours getting his spray paint demon gimmick on, to help him beat Lesnar, who it looks like to me out weighs Finn by a good 100 pounds. Ah, but the following news by Meltzer is very telling. Meltzer is reporting that this was the plan all along to sell tickets. Knowing that fans would not buy Finn Balor against Lesnar. So that is where the WWE is with their talent. They have to work a gimmick that is a new one for me by advertising a wrestler the fans think had a chance to beat Lesnar to sell tickets, then pull the rug right out from underneath the fans, double crossing them by putting in a man who will not sell one ticket to see this match. Also waiting as long as they could.
Damn, the WWE sucks when it comes to talent. I bet that Cody Rhodes and his crew will out draw WWE head to head every time. Truly, a colossal scam by the WWE, man do they ever suck. S.B.G.
Because weight is all that matters in wrestling don'tcha know? That's why Big Show is undefeated and Rey Mysterio loses all his matches.
You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....
I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.
