While some high-profile departures were recently announced, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) has also recently announced some talent signings.
Two members of the NJPW roster, Juice Robinson and Rocky Romero, have reportedly signed contract extensions with the promotion.
F4WOnline.com was first to report the news that Juice Robinson has signed a new three-year deal with NJPW, despite rumored interest from WWE. Dave Meltzer of the aforementioned website also reported that All Elite Wrestling (AEW) “obviously wanted him.”
Romero confirmed via Twitter on Monday morning that he has signed a new deal with NJPW as well. He wrote the following:
