Juice Robinson wants to be part of New Japan Pro Wrestling‘s future; he just doesn’t know how yet.

Juice Robinson was a recent guest on Instinct Culture by Denise Salcedo to discuss his professional wrestling career. When talking about his future with New Japan Pro Wrestling, Robinson touched upon how different his life is now compared to when the pandemic started:

“My life coming out of this pandemic was way better than it was going in,” Juice Robinson said. “My life has totally changed. We don’t need to get personal about my life story and stuff but when this all started I had a little bachelor pad/ studio apartment in Tokyo, next to Shinjuku Station, the world’s largest train station so I was living a fast bachelor lifestyle. Not saying I didn’t want to settle down but there were no signs of slowing down. {laughs}

“Now I am sitting in a house that I bought, I am engaged, I am gonna be married, I have a dog running around annoying me as we speak, it’s just a crazy thing. I’ll always be with New Japan in my heart. Those are my guys, those are my boys, those are my people that gave me the chance, I’ll never turn my back on New Japan. But right now my life has just changed, I am just not that 25-year-old kid with a Paul McCartney autobiography in his book bag wanting to travel the world anymore. That’s just not who I am. But I still want to be part of New Japan and I just don’t know how I am going to be but I will be.”

New Japan Strong has been very beneficial to NJPW throughout the pandemic, and now it has turned into a touring brand for the company. Robinson reflected upon Strong’s humble beginnings and what it has turned into:

“Strong was birthed out of the pandemic, we were forced into a studio, we were forced to wrestle in front of an audience of one, the camera,” Juice Robinson said. “It’s weird because when we first started the U.S expansion our dreams and hopes to do that kinda got the brakes put on it. It came to a halt and then Strong happened and now a mixture between Strong and our old idea of trying to bring New Japan to every town or at least every region in America now they are getting mixed and welded as one. Now we have Strong touring… we’re bringing the best, we’re bringing them all.”
