Karl Fredericks Departs NJPW

Karl Fredericks leaves NJPW

Karl Fredericks announced today that his New Japan Pro-Wrestling contract has expired and he is not planning to re-sign with the promotion, ending his run as an NJPW talent.

Fredericks wrote: "As of today August 1st I am no longer under contract with New Japan Pro-Wrestling and I will not be re-signing with the company at this time. Though there is disappointment in the ending of this chapter I am grateful for the last four years traveling the world and growing with my best friends. I want to say thank you to Shibata-San for believing in me and bringing me along his journey with the LA Dojo. Last but not least thank you to my fans and thank you to the NJPW fans for Your support over these years. I hope You will continue to support me along my path wherever that may lead." 

Fredericks had been a part of the LA Dojo since 2018 after three years performing on the California independent wrestling scene. He won the Young Lion Cup back in 2019, overcoming the likes of Shota Umino, Yota Tsuji, Clark Connors, and Alex Coughlin. 

Fredericks hasn't performed for New Japan since US tapings in May. He defeated Ren Narita on May 14 at Capital Collision before he picked up a win over QT Marshall at the May 15 STRONG taping.
