IWGP United States Champion and NWA World Heavyweight Champion Cody Rhodes may be on his way back to the WWE, with some of his friends, when he officially hits free agency at the start of the 2019 year.

Shortly after appearing at New Japan’s Fighting Spirit Unleashed event this past Sunday, Rhodes spoke to WrestlingInc and discussed a potential return to WWE in January, along with the possibility of the Bullet Club joining him.

“Everyone has different opinions and it’s hard to get the opinion of someone when it’s, ‘Hey what do you wanna do? What is the next thing you wanna do?’” Rhodes said, adding that; “There’s five of us [Bullet Club] that’s a core unit that plan to stick together, and hopefully we can really do that.

I don’t want to make any judgments as I’ve had a great time with these guys. I’d like The Elite to continue and I’d like to bring you guys something like an All In sequel.”

Cody and the Bullet Club to WWE is a hot rumor, and one that will be constantly discussed leading up to the moment he officially becomes a free agent on January 1st, 2019.

Chris Jericho Says New Japan “Breathing Down The Neck” Of WWE

Published

IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho believes that while New Japan won’t ever top WWE, they are certainly putting the pressure of competition on the wrestling giant.

“[New Japan] is a company that’s slowly but surely increasing its worldwide popularity and basically breathing down the neck of the WWE” Jericho said, in an interview with the Winnipeg Free Press’ Taylor Allen.

“It’s a Japanese wrestling company, the top stars are Japanese, but there we were, two foreigners, headlining and main eventing the Tokyo Dome. It would be like two Japanese football teams in the Super Bowl. The fact it’s two guys from Winnipeg is a really huge deal.”

Jericho believes that what makes New Japan so successful is that they present something different than what fans see in WWE programming.

“Obviously, you’ll never beat WWE, but to carve out a niche for yourself within the market, you have to do something different, and New Japan is a completely different animal. Yes, it’s still pro wrestling, but it’s a completely different style and much more reformed, more hard-hitting and, in a lot of ways, more fun, depending on what you’re looking for.”
