Kota Ibushi Reacts To AEW Debut Announcement NJPW

On the July 12 episode of AEW Dynamite, Kota Ibushi’s long-awaited debut was made official and the man himself has reacted.

Heading into the Blood and Guts match on July 19, Ibushi will be joining the team of Kenny Omega, Adam Page and the Young Bucks to face  Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, & Wheeler Yuta), Konosuke Takeshita, and PAC.

PAC made his return to AEW after a six month break from our television screens, as previously reported.

Ibushi had long been expected to join AEW, having made it clear that Tony Khan’s company was a top priority for the former NJPW star.

With Ibushi’s debut now only one week away, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion has responded to the debut announcement on Twitter, writing:

“Kept you waiting huh.

“I’ve been watching AEW this whole time. Kenny, your 5th man is…the Golden Elite’s Kota Ibushi!!

“Sorry I’m late Page, Bucks, Kenny. Next week I’ll be there!! Kota Ibushi is finally back at full strength so shall we change the world together?

“Let’s go!!”

Ibushi has recently described Takeshita as an “imitation” of the Golden Lover.
