Former WWE Superstar Signs Exclusive Deal With NJPW

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar Darren Young has signed an exclusive deal to appear for New Japan Pro Wrestling. Now known as Fred Rosser, the former WWE Superstar will be working for New Japan exclusively going forward.

Rosser has been a mainstay on the NJPW Strong roster over the past 12 months, and looks set to continue that run. NJPW Strong is a NJPWWorld subscription service exclusive show that airs every Friday night and is based in the United States.

Fred Rosser took to social media to announce that he had signed an exclusive deal with the Japanese leader in wrestling. For now, it appears as though will remain as an NJPW Strong only star, with a potential move to Japan once the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions begin to ease and he is free to travel.

Former WWE Superstar Signs Exclusive Deal

‘I’m excited to officially announce I’ve signed W/ NJPW!” the former WWE Superstar announced via Twitter. “All I can say moving forward is, don’t ever let your dreams just be dreams because as long as you’re patient & believe in your dreams, anything is possible.”

“Patience is a talent #njpwSTRONG #blockthehate @njpw1972 @njpwworld’ the openly gay wrestler added.

NJPW Strong is one of the most consistent pro wrestling shows released on a weekly basis. New Japan have begun strong (pardon the pun) with their new show during the ‘behind closed doors’ era and look set to continue.

Interestingly, rumors of a potential WWE and NJPW partnership continue to linger, with WWE looking to ‘put a dent’ into their biggest competition AEW. These rumors are still under scrutiny, however it is possible that NJPW may become the Japanese partner of the biggest promotion in the world.
