Aleister Black: NJPW Would Be Phenomenal

Will Tommy End mix it up in NJPW?

Aleister Black's five-year run in WWE came to an end last week after the company released the former NXT Champion. 

Black now has his eyes on the future and he appears to be open to working in New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

Black told Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions: "I think it's no secret that I have a lot of love for New Japan. I think in several interviews I mentioned that I never grew up watching WWE, I watched New Japan on Eurosport. So, when AEW had Yuji Nagata, I was pretty envious of Mox because that was one of the guys I looked up to when I was younger. 

"New Japan would be phenomenal. I love Japan, and I miss Japan. Even thinking about it gives me butterflies because never did I feel more like a professional wrestler - and I can say that now again - than when I stepped off the plane in the airport and would drive down to Yokohama and I would go into the dojo and start training. It was great. So, yeah, I don't know what the future holds at this point. I mean, I know certain parts of my future, but I'm not gonna spoil things."

What the future holds for Black ultimately remains to be seen but many, including Booker T, believe he would be a perfect fit in NJPW alongside the likes of Shingo Takagi, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Kazuchika Okada and Jay White.
