KUSHIDA left WWE: likely return to NJPW

– As it is now known, KUSHIDA left the market leader. The 38-year-old’s initial three-year contract has expired and no new deal has been signed. It is unclear if WWE made him an offer to extend his contract. His profile has already been moved to the alumni space on the homepage. His last match for WWE aired 3/25/2022 on NXT LVL UP. A match between KUSHIDA and Von Wagner was actually announced for last week’s NXT edition, but the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion was eliminated by a backstage attack, so Ikemen Jiro ultimately contested the match. . According to Dave Meltzer, KUSHIDA will likely be back in the ring in his home country for New Japan Pro Wrestling in June. Before signing with WWE, Yujiro Kushida, real name, was a leading figure in the Super Junior division.
