Those singles matches were few and far between. It has definitely put me into the deep end. I’ve grown and evolved because we all have those dreams of becoming a singles champion in WWE.

Other Wrestling

  • Shingo Takagi in a press conference following NJPW Dominion spoke about becoming the new IWGP World Heavyweight Champion: “Okada had the record for most defences of the previous IWGP Heavyweight title. He represented that belt, but I feel now it’s with me, the prestige of this title has been elevated a bit, if I do say so myself. Tanahashi, Okada, they’re definitely factors, but what drives me most is beating out the people of my generation. Ibushi, Naito, they’re the guys that make me the most competitive. Ibushi and I debuted at the same time, Naito and I have that past in the Hamaguchi Gym. I have my reasons for coming to New Japan in the first place, but getting to throw down with Ibushi, that was definitely one aspect. Having a proper place for us to square off. We didn’t start out as New Japan guys, but a few years ago it hit me that the guy I want to fight the most is in NJPW, and if I want that to happen then I have to be in NJPW too. Then October 2018 I arrived, and two years, what, eight months later… I wouldn’t call that a rapid ascent. I’m 39 this year, I can’t afford to take things slow.”
  • Will Ospreay replied to Takagi’s title win on Twitter: “Facts. You & the rest of the roster got slapped about when I was at 50%. Imagine me at 100%. Enjoy the Interim Championship.”

  • Mikey Nicholls told Andrew Thompson of Post Wrestling that he is still with New Japan Pro Wrestling, but hasn’t been able to attend shows due to COVID-19: “I’m still in contact with them but because we’ve got...I don’t know the travel thing, and then there’s quarantining there and here and then I don’t know if I need the shots and stuff like that so, I’m all booked in to get at least my first vaccine shot so I’m trying to get all on top of all that so that when it becomes easier, there’s no hold up and no hassle to just jump right back into it.”
