A NJPW star wants to wrestle CM Punk or Chris Jericho at the upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event.
With AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door rapidly approaching on June 25, many stars from both promotions have begun to throw names out for who they would like to wrestle at the show.
In a new interview with The Wrstling Podcast, Fred Rosser was asked to name someone that he would like to face at Forbidden Door 2. He answered:
“Hm, who would I like to wrestle from their side. That’s a good question, I’m just focused with New Japan.”
“Who would I want to wrestle? I’d wanna wrestle Chris Jericho, CM Punk, it would be full circle with CM Punk, he was my coach on the original NXT, which was like a game show, which I hated.”
“He pretty much hated doing it too, during the time we didn’t really say two words to one another. Full circle, I’m a lot older, I’m a lot wiser. I’m like wine, I age gracefully with time.”
“I definitely feel like working against [either of them], Jericho or CM Punk, would help elevate me.”
Rosser is a former NJPW STRONG Openweight Champion and currently trains at the NJPW Academy in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, CM Punk is reportedly on his way back to All Elite Wrestling ahead of the upcoming AEW Collision show despite a recent falling out with Tony Khan and the company.
