Kota Ibushi To Open Pro Wrestling School
Kota Ibushi to train future pro wrestlers
Kota Ibushi has further detailed his plans to open a pro wrestling school.
The Golden Star told Weekly Pro Wrestling (Translated using DeepL):
"To be honest, I have a limited life as a pro wrestler, and I am now 40-years-old, which is also a milestone for me. I want to train pro wrestlers. A professional wrestling school. It would be for a period of six months, and I would provide a dormitory and all meals. I'm thinking about 800,000 yen for six months of tuition, which would be about 130,000 or 140,000 yen per month. If I have a place to live, food to eat, and an environment where I can learn the wrestling I love, then in my opinion, it is not that expensive. I would also like to broadcast my training process on YouTube."
Ibushi noted following his NJPW exit on February 1 that he planned to open a wrestling school. The Golden Star is set to remain a freelancer following the end of his New Japan contract and he is currently scheduled to make his GCW debut over WrestleMania 39 weekend.
The 40-year-old also plans to speak with All Elite Wrestling after opening his school. Ibushi has many friends in AEW and the promotion's CEO Tony Khan was open to working with Ibushi in a recent interview.
Despite a possible AEW run, Ibushi still plans to keep Japan as his main country for wrestling, he told Weekly Pro Wrestling.
