• WWE & AEW Want To Sign Former World Champion

Kota Ibushi (age 40) recently left New Japan Pro Wrestling after his contract expired.

He is now a Free Agent. According to multiple sources, both WWE & AEW are interested in signing Ibushi.

During an interview with Dark Puroresu Flowsion, Ibushi said he has high interest in joining All Elite Wrestling, but wouldn’t rule out WWE:

“Of course, I’m interested in it. I’m good at producing players & I’ve created stars, so I don’t think there’s anyone who can control me even in that frame. I live so freely.”

During his appearance on In The Kliq podcast, AEW President Tony Khan said the following about signing Ibushi:

“I would love to have Kota Ibushi here. Kota Ibushi has wrestled in Ring Of Honor in the past and has a great history wrestling in Japan and in America and is a top free agent and that’s somebody we would love to have here if the deal is right and the timing is right.”
