DC 536 Posted July 12, 2014 Share Posted July 12, 2014 (edited) WWE® SIGNS JAPANESE STAR KENTA TO NXT® STAMFORD, Conn., July 12, 2014 – WWE (NYSE:WWE) today announced it has signed Kenta, one of Japan’s biggest stars, to its NXT division. The announcement took place during a signing ceremony at a WWE Live Event in Osaka, Japan with WWE icon and Hall of Famer, Hulk Hogan presiding. Kenta’s intense and straight forward in-ring style has led to his success in Japan, as well as during visits to the U.S. He is expected to reach new heights of global success with WWE. “Kenta is an incredible performer who brings the crowd to its feet when he steps into the ring”, said Paul Levesque, Executive Vice President, Talent, Creative and Live Events, WWE. “WWE’s signing of Kenta reflects our continued dedication to creating a diverse roster that appeals to our global fan base.” “I am humbled to join WWE’s NXT division and look forward to honing my craft with the global leader in sports entertainment,” said Kenta. Kenta will relocate to Orlando, Florida where he will train at WWE’s state-of-the-art Performance Center to enhance his talents both athletically and creatively. Official WWE Japan announcement It looks like a conspiracy in the works as KENTA signs at a time when both Daniel Bryan and CM Punk are no longer in the company, so he can now do his own finishers again. :lol Edited July 12, 2014 by DC Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
