So for puroresu fans it has become quite apparent that WWE has been utterly raiding NJPW roster for talent both American and Japanese. The most notable of course being the signing of Bullet Club members, AJ Styles, Gallows, Anderson and of course CHAOS member Shinsuke Nakamura. Not only that but WWE has hinted at signing NJPW stand out Kota Ibushi.
This raises the interesting question. How far will WWE take these NJPW stars and will the Japanese talent get a chance to star on the main roster (a feat which none of their new crop of Japanese talent have so far outside of Hideo Itami's Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal appearance at Mania 31).
Will NJPW continue to suffer roster losses to WWE? What do you guys make of this situation?
I will take it seriously if they place the belt on a Japanese star who is deserving of it. They're on the right track by having the NXT women's belt on Asuka, would love to see Shinsuke Nakamura hold the WWE championship... but too many politics to overcome. Best cast would be to make him Intercontinental Champion as he made the IWGP version famous.
Intrigued by the Bullet Club involvement in the world title picture lately!
While it is a loss, I think NJPW will still thrive. It's the biggest wrestling machine second to WWE, and the biggest in Japan. I think NJPW and WWE will become allies rather than competitors.
