Amazing Red To Debut For New Japan
“Amazing Red will make his first appearance for NJPW in the Super J-Cup,” an NJPW press release reads. “A 21-year veteran of the global wrestling scene, Red found a huge fanbase in the early years of Ring of Honor. Forming a tag team with AJ Styles, he won the ROH World Tag Team Championships in 2003, one of 23 championships attained in a decorated career. Red’s innovative and high-flying style inspired a generation of junior heavyweights in the United States and beyond.”
