Juice Robinson's NJPW contract reportedly expiring in January

Juice Robinson's could soon be a free agent, according to a report. 

Fightful Select reports that Robinson's NJPW contract is set to expire "at the end of January 2022." The Fightful report states that one promoter expects Robinson to receive offers from multiple companies. 

Robinson has been a regular on NJPW Strong events in the United States of late, appearing at the Showdown tapings in Philadelphia in October, Texas in September, plus the Resurgence show in Los Angeles in August. 

Robinson reportedly signed a three-year deal with NJPW in early 2019. During that time, he has also worked for Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling due to NJPW's working agreements with those companies.

Robinson has held singles and tag team gold in NJPW. He is a two-time IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion, with reigns in 2018 and 2019. Robinson and David Finlay captured NJPW's World Tag League in 2019 and held the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team titles for 28 days in early 2020. The duo also won the Impact Wrestling World Tag Team titles at Sacrifice in March 2021.

Robinson was with WWE on their FCW and NXT brands from 2011 to 2015 under the name CJ Parker. He requested his WWE release, which WWE confirmed on April 3, 2015. It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in July 2018 that WWE had interest in bringing Robinson back after a strong showing against Jay White at NJPW's G1 Special show in California. Robinson shot down in a promo that he would ever return to the company. 

Robinson is engaged to be married to WWE's Toni Storm.
