As noted, KUSHIDA joined Shane Strickland and Garza Jr. as new recruits that recently reported to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
KUSHIDA, who WWE has been promoting on NXT TV, took to social media to comment on joining WWE ahead of his debut on this Wednesday’s episode of NXT TV on the WWE Network.
Check out KUSHIDA’s official statement below.
“About a month has passed since I moved to Florida. Looking back on this month, I have spent a long time as if it has already been about a year. I was in a state where I didn’t understand the new practice environment, food, housing, English, matches, but I feel that a little more open time has been created recently.
“On weekdays, practice picked up at the Performance Center. I also started a one-on-one English class. The weekend is full of house shows. I am desperate every day to get through a day. Driving to the venue yourself, setting up the ring, wrestle, and clear the ring. Then drive back to home again. It is the life in NXT. With the series of fresh discoveries, it feels like you are becoming thicker and bigger as a person.
“The prospects, wrestlers from other professional sports, Indians, Saudis, Chinese, foreigners who I have never met, and NXT top rivals who I know from a long time ago, I live in this intersection. As my life is starting to get settled, I can finally put my feet on the pedal and 100% power on my engine. Bring all of this into the ring. 4/28/2019 Before the Change of the Era – KUSHIDA”
