KUSHIDA has addressed his NJPW return and starting a new life in Los Angeles.
The former WWE star left the company after his contract expired on April 18. He spent three years with the promotion after leaving New Japan Pro Wrestling in January 2019.
On the June 21 edition of New Japan Road, the former six-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion made his return to NJPW by confronting the current IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion Taiji Ishimori.
KUSHIDA took to social media to comment on his return and starting a new life after his run in WWE, writing:
Today, I signed with New Japan Pro-Wrestling. I will return to New Japan Pro Wrestling.
I am so honored to be back and to wrestle on the New Japan Pro Wrestling ring.
Some people say I want to wrestle in heavy weight division or I want to be in Bullet Club, these are all fake news.
Right now, I am still living in Florida. I am trying to move to Los Angels but still im midst of moving.
I will return to US this week and look start new life in Los Angels next week…I hope.
Sign an apartment? Can I speak english? So much troubles and busy everyday but will try and update my Instagram as much as possible.
To live in Los Angels and to wrestle has been my dream for a log term. I will look to accompolish this dream, hopefully.
I will look to bring excitement to New Japan, New Japan’s Junior division, and NJPW LA Dojo.
Thank you to those who supported me on my journey and thank you all for your support.

KUSHIDA will make his in-ring return to NJPW on July 3 when he will team with Hiroshi Tanahashi and Alex Zayne to face Bullet Club’s KENTA, Taiji Ishimori and Gedo.
