With the new creative direction of Triple H in charge, the idea is to bring the focus back to real Wrestling, setting aside sports-entertainment. Hunter would like to flesh out the roster with big returns and new additions, including a superstar from Japan.
The indiscretion was launched by Dave Meltzer during the canonical Wrestling Observer Radio. "I know for a fact that they are looking for a Japanese superstar. I think of Konosuke Takeshita, who recently gave his best in AEW.
I don't know what kind of contract he has with them and DDT, but I don't think it's long term and it could very well be on WWE's radar. He has an excellent physique and excellent athletic skills, the prototype of what they are looking for." Konosuke Takeshita, a veteran of DDT, has been the protagonist of great matches in AEW with wrestlers of the caliber of Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston and Adam Page.
He recently fought in the Battle of Belts III main event, held last Saturday, against Claudio Castagnoli. Despite the defeat against the Swiss, the Japanese fighter won the respect of William Regal and a standing ovation from the fans.
AEW risks losing Konusuke Takeshita
AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley picked up a hard-fought win against Konosuke Takeshita on Dynamite. As many will recall, Triple H had been a great supporter of Japanese wrestlers, personally wanting Kota Ibushi in the lightweight tournament held in WWE in 2016.
The appreciation was then seen with the management of Shinsuke Namakura at NXT (twice champion) and with the aim of launching NXT Japan, which unfortunately never went through. Meanwhile, The Game seems ready to return to base several superstars fired during the McMahon regime: after Karrion Kross, who returned to SmackDown last week, the next could be Johnny Gargano (all eyes are on tonight's episode of Raw).
The Fiend Bray Wyatt also recently posted a cryptic tweet that would portend his return to the world of Wrestling. To stay tuned to news related to All Elite Wrestling and the world of Wrestling in general, we invite you to follow our Instagram page.
Taking to Twitter, Takeshita said he wants to test himself in AEW by competing in more matches. The DDT-Pro Wrestling star concluded his message by saying he can still evolve: "I want to fight more more matches @AEW. I can still evolve so watch for that. Thank you for watching #AEWRampage".
