Katsuhiko Nakajima Concludes Tenure with Pro Wrestling NOAH, Eyes Potential Move to WWE or AEW
After a notable tenure with Pro Wrestling NOAH, Katsuhiko Nakajima has concluded his association with the promotion, opening the door to potential opportunities with either WWE or AEW.
Debuting for NOAH in July 2005, Nakajima leaves behind a legacy as a former two-time GHC Champion, three-time GHC Junior Heavyweight Champion, and a six-time holder of the GHC Tag Team Championship.
Despite no longer being under contract with NOAH, the 35-year-old wrestler’s future remains uncertain. In a recent update on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer shed light on Nakajima’s potential destinations, hinting at the possibility of WWE or AEW as the next chapters in his professional wrestling journey.
“(Katsuhiko) Nakajima is finishing up with NOAH.
WHis contract has already expired with NOAH, but he’s doing a few more matches this month, and nobody in Japan knows where he’s going.
“I’ve got friends in Japan who have speculated WWE. New Japan (is) very high in the speculation. And when Tony (Khan) was asked, he said that (AEW’s) very interested too.
“When he was leaving, it was pretty much gonna be one of those three places because why else would he be leaving?”
