NJPW Star Recalls Turning Down Offers From Other Promotions NJPW

NJPW star Bad Luck Fale has confirmed that he previously turned down offers from other promotions, while with NJPW.

Since his NJPW in 2010, Fale has proven himself as one of the most consistent workers in the brand’s heavyweight division.

He has had an eventful career in Japan, notably holding IWGP Intercontinental and tag-team gold, and forming Bullet Club alongside Prince Devitt (Finn Balor), Karl Anderson and Tama Tonga.

Speaking on Shooting The Sh*t UNCENSORED!, Fale confirmed that he has turned down offers from a company he didn’t name, noting:

“I don’t wanna mention names but there were a couple times (interest from other companies was expressed) and I did turn it down because I’m not interested in going over there and like I said, I’m happy trying to develop and grow this territory which in the long run will help me more than going over there and having a short run or being used up and spat out like most of the guys who go there.”

While Fale didn’t name the promotion which sent him offers, many have speculated that the promotion in question was WWE, with Fale’s fears about a short run with the company seemingly stemming from WWE’s tendency for mass releases under the previous regime.

Several former Bullet Club members currently wrestle for WWE, including former leaders Finn Balor and AJ Styles.

With the last Bullet Club leader Jay White currently a free agent, rumors have been swirling about his next move, with WWE and AEW both reportedly interested in signing White.
