Its been a tough past few days for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). Recently, it was announced that both Kenny Omega and KUSHIDA are likely moving on from the promotion. Also, longtime NJPW star and Suzuki-gun member, Takashi Iizuka, will be retiring. A celebratory ceremony will be held for him at Korakuen Hall on February 21st.
However, there are a few bright spots for NJPW. They recently re-signed IWGP United States Champion Juice Robinson. Robinson recently defeated Cody Rhodes to reclaim the US strap at Wrestle Kingdom 13 at the Tokyo Dome. Now, it has been announced NJPW and Rocky Romero have come to an agreement on a new multi-year deal.
Romero made the announcement on Twitter this morning:

During his time with NJPW, Romero has won eight Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Titles. He also won the Super Jr. Tag Tournament with Baretta in 2016. Romero has an IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship reign under his belt as well. Now it looks like he’ll be continuing his run with NJPW for the next few years.
What do you think about Romero re-signing with NJPW on a multi-year deal?
