While speaking with Wrestling Republic’s Eric Novak, Japanese sensation Konosuke Takeshita stated he wants to live and wrestle in America.
Konosuke Takeshita has been on a hell of a roll recently, with a successful four month tour to the United States of America as a prove of that.
During those four months, Konosuke Takeshita was able to make his debut in All Elite Wrestling, putting in amazing performances on his matches at AEW’s Dynamite, Rampage and Dark shows against some of the company’s toughest competitors.
However, after returning to Japan, Takeshita has joined Wrestling Republic’s Eric Novak at his ‘All Real Wrestling Podcast’, where he revealed his plans of returning to America in the near future.
The 27-year-old addressed this with the help of AEW’s translator Michael Nakazawa. So, when consulted, Nakazawa said:
“He didn’t mean to do an excursion. His goal is to move here and make his living by wrestling here. This is not an excursion. He might have to go back to Japan eventually, but he didn’t mean it. This is not an excursion for him. He tried to come here, move here, make a living on his own by wrestling. That’s why he chose AEW.” (H/T Fightful)
Takeshita continued by stating that, even though he has recently returned to action at DDT Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Peter Pan event, he is still aiming to return to the U.S by the end of the year.
He said: “I hope to return to the US, ASAP. Maybe October or November. I hope so. I have to talk with DDT.” (H/T Fightful)
