Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Oli Davis. And just in case you didn’t catch the announcement
at the start of this video – because you were too busy thinking: who is that guy? Haven’t
I seen him before? Maybe with, like, a literal and metaphorical crown on that’s been snatched
from his head?! – WrestleTalk will indeed be taking on Cultaholic in a SummerSchlam
predictions war… where the losing team has to do a live onstage punishment at September’s
Wrestling MediaCon weekend in Manchester, England. Click the link in the video description
below to get your tickets now. Good luck, Cultaholic. Because while you might
have a man advantage, we’ve got an El Fakidor. And he kind of counts as, like, three people,
because of all the identity fraud. He’s so trustworthy.
Speaking of interpromotional wars… …New Japan’s Tama Tonga has decided WWE’s
Roman Reigns is to blame for him getting locked out of Twitter. Seemingly only because Reigns
joked about it happening, and that Tama Tonga’s insane, and he does whatever he wants.
“Got the #Snitch. Your bark can’t seem to get OVER your Yard for me to hear you.
My yard has no fences, come test your skills here anytime. “Jealousy is a bitch trait”-
what album is that from? #RomanTheRat” I actually doubled your lil videos views for
you in like 4 hours. You should be thankful. Thanks for the laughs tho! 👍🏽🤙🏽”
Thanks for time keeping and view counting, must be looking for new material…writers
gave up on you? If you need more laughs just continue fist cocking, it gets funnier every
time. It doesn’t, Tama. It doesn’t get funnier.
And that’s not where the New Japan / WWE tension stops, as the latest Wrestling Observer
Newsletter is reporting WWE officials have “great interest” in current IWGP United
States Champion Juice Robinson. Robinson captured New Japan’s US belt in
a star-making match against Jay White earlier this month, where he’s become a solid mid-card
act in the promotion over the last year. The Observer adds that “A number of New Japan
regulars actually aren’t under contract… so legally WWE can approach them without it
being tampering. Others it has to be more nuanced, but they are making plays right now.”
But while WWE wants Juice Robinson… …Juice Robinson doesn’t want WWE.
Robinson spent four years in NXT as CJ Parker, where he was mainly used as an enhancement
talent, leading him to request his release in 2015. Which is probably why he said this
in response to the reports at last night’s G1 Show:
“I ain’t going back. I ain’t ever going back… you can take that and shove it up
your ass.” So if New Japan stars don’t want to go back
to WWE… what about WWE stars going back to New Japan?
Wrestling Observer Radio recently pointed out that AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Luke
Gallows and Karl Anderson’s WWE contracts all expire early next year, with all four
men signing three year deals back in 2016 after jumping ship from New Japan following
WrestleKingdom 10 – and apparently New Japan has “absolute interest” in bringing back
Nakamura, one of their most popular stars from recent times.
