KUSHIDA Releases Statement on the Transition to NXT


Former New Japan Pro-Wrestling star KUSHIDA recently debuted with NXT.

He has wrestled on the house shows, typically against the Undisputed ERA in tag team situations.

With approximately a month passing since he’s made the move, KUSHIDA took to his Twitter to open up regarding this new chapter of his life.

In his statement, he talks about taking English classes, and dealing with the culture shock that comes with moving to a new country.

He does, however, call NXT home and appears to be really excited about this new chapter of his life:

About a month has passed since I moved to Florida. Looking back on this month, I have spent a long time as if it has already been about a year. I was in a state where I didn’t understand the new practice environment, food, housing, English, Matches…but I feel that a little more open time has been created recently.
On weekdays, practice picked up at the
performance center. I also started a one-on- one English class. The weekend is full of lot house shows. I am desperate every day to get through a day. Driving to the venue yourself, setting the ring, wrestle, and clear the ring. Then drive back to home again it is the life in NXT. With the series of fresh discoveries, it feels like you are becoming thicker and bigger as a person.
The prospects, wrestlers from other
professional sports, Indians, Saudis, Chinese foreigners who I have never met and NXT top rivals who I know from a long time ago, I live in this intersection.
As my life is starting to get settled, I can finally put my feet on the pedal and 100% power on my engine. Bring all of this into the ring.
