• nWo Veteran Returning To NJPW
New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced that Old School WCW/nWo Veteran Scott Norton, who is also a former 2-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion, is returning to the company.
At Windy City Riot on April 16, Norton will join forces with Bullet Club to face United Empire in a 12-man Tag Team match.
Below is what NJPW posted about this match:
“It’s certainly an imposing combination, and one that any BULLET CLUB team would have significant issues with.
Hikuleo, Chris Bey and El Phantasmo have some formidable and legendary additions of their own though.
Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows, the Good Brothers are in NJPW action for the first time since Resurgence last August, and the team will be joined by the legendary Scott Norton!
‘Flash’ Norton will wrestle in the cerulean blue for the first time in 5 years, and even at 60 years old, will be a powerful presence on the BC squad!”
