Last month, it was reported via Fightful Select that WWE had interest in signing Tama Tonga. In a recent interview, Tonga added more fuel to the fire by stating that WWE were pursuing him hard.
Speaking to Yahoo Japan, the former NEVER Openweight Champion and Bullet Club founding member admitted that he’s interested in signing with WWE.
Tonga stated: “I’m always the guy at the top. Look what I have accomplished in my short career in Japan. I started the best unit ever, the Bullet Club. I was ostracized. Nobody believed me. But that’s okay. All you need is yourself. All you need is to believe in yourself. I will be the best wrestler. It could be the ultimate legend of New Japan Pro Wrestling, or it could be WWE, because WWE is knocking hard on my door. And I might say, ‘Hello.'”
