Top NJPW Star Considering Move To WWE?

Top NJPW Star Considering Move To WWE?

In the last few years, we’ve seen the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura and KUSHIDA make the move from New Japan Pro-Wrestling to WWE, and it seems another NJPW star could be joining Vince McMahon’s ranks soon.

Speaking on the Stories with Briscoe and Bradshaw podcast, former WWE star turned producer Dave “Fit” Finlay discussed the future of his son, NJPW star David Finlay, and admitted Finlay Jr isn’t sure what his next career move will be.

“He’s in Japan right now, so I guess Japan have had an outbreak of COVID and so they started cancelling shows. He works for New Japan Pro-Wrestling. They started having an outbreak. A lot of the talent got COVID so they were sending them home. They went to the airport yesterday and almost all of them were tested positive for COVID so they were sent back.

“They were gonna go to a government hotel but then they made a deal and they put them in the dojo so, my son David and Jay White are in the dojo, quarantined there for another ten days or so which is ridiculous so, the COVID has just, the whole world had just put everything on standstill for a little bit and we’ll get over it but, he’s doing well there.”

Fit Finlay went into more detail about his son’s next career moves, and said he and his son will be sitting down together to discuss his future choices.

“I don’t know how New Japan are going to handle this new outbreak or, I don’t know, no one does. But, he’s a little bit confused at the minute as what to do next, you know? Is he going to stay in Japan, does he want to try here, like WWE or whatever. But him and I are gonna sit down when he does eventually come home and try and figure it out but he just needs a little bit of wisdom put in his head. Not that I have any.”
