SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
New Japan has signed a new member to its roster.
Chris Dickinson announced in a post on Instagram today that he has signed a contract with NJPW. Dickson, a GCW regular and independent wrestling fixture for many years, announced that the deal will also allow him to continue working independent dates outside of Japan.
Dickinson recently returned to in-ring action during WrestleMania weekend after suffering an injury in September of 2021. He had been wrestling for NJPW in the U.S. and Ring of Honor as well prior to his injury.
Dickinson wrote the following about his signing with New Japan on his Instagram page:
I am beyond proud to announce that I have officially signed an agreement with New Japan Pro Wrestling. I’ve heard you all for years say I should sign with other companies and I appreciate everyone of your hopes for my success but this is what I’ve always wanted. With the companies expansion in the USA on the rise and Japan finally reopening, the future is brighter than ever. I am still available to work independently in the USA and internationally excluding Japan but NJPW is now home. Let’s continue to bring the highest level of pro wrestling to the world together.
