It looks like IWGP United States Champion Juice Robinson isn’t going anywhere. It was recently reported by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio that Robinson has re-signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) on a new three-year deal. Robinson recently defeated Cody Rhodes at Wrestle Kingdom 13 to regain the United States Title.
This is a bright spot for NJPW, as it was recently announced that top stars such as Kenny Omega and KUSHIDA will be leaving the company. Meltzer noted that there was some interest in Robinson from WWE, but things never got serious enough to the point where they offered him a deal. Robinson is no stranger to WWE, competing in NXT under the name CJ Parker at one point.
However, he made the decision to leave the company in 2015 and has continued to grow as a performer overseas. Now, it looks like Robinson won’t be going anywhere for another three years.
