Tonight, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) will air a new episode on AXS TV featuring matches from the 2024 Resurgence event held in Ontario, CA.

The updated card includes:

– NJPW Strong Openweight Championship, No Ropes Last Man Standing Match: Eddie Kingston (c) versus Gabe Kidd

Great-O-Khan, one of NJPW’s most renowned wrestlers, has voiced his views on the recent exit of several of his colleagues over the last year via social media. Khan expressed his anticipation that the trend of departures from NJPW would likely persist. Prominent exits include Jay White, Kazuchika Okada, Will Ospreay, Tama Tonga, and Tanga Loa.

Great-O-Khan highlighted his views on the matter in a tweet, encapsulating his thoughts on strengthening the relationship with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), along with potential reasons behind the transfer trend. Khan further highlights that apart from ample contract fees, other factors may have influenced wrestlers to shift to AEW.

In his detailed tweet, he addressed the security NJPW provides to its wrestlers, the potential benefits of affiliating with AEW, and the eventual drawbacks the company, management and NJPW fans are going to experience. He also shared his thoughts on potential ways of dealing with this ongoing trend.

He concluded by expressing his anticipation for the continuity of this exodus and the need for a financial boost, suggesting that increasing the number of spectators at local events might be one way. Despite losing several team members to AEW, Khan is optimistic and committed to doing his part. He aims to follow in the footsteps of Hiroshi Tanahashi in becoming the reigning champion of NJPW.
