WWE has announced the signing of Kushida, one of the most popular Japanese wrestlers.

He won the IWGP Junior Heavyweight title six times, the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team titles twice, and the Super J-Cup during his stint there.

Prior to NJPW he also wrestled for AJPW and competed in Canada, Mexico, and United States.
