Katsuhiko Nakajima Officially A Free Agent, No Longer With Pro Wrestling NOAH; NJPW Speculation Heats Up

For the first time in 15 years, pro wrestling star Katsuhiko Nakajima is a free agent and is free to wrestle for any promotion he choses. Nakajima appears to be excited about this new chapter of his career.

Nakajima created quite a stir in the world of Japanese pro wrestling last week when he announced he would be leaving NOAH after being a mainstay for the promotion for 15 years. Despite being a free agent, he has agreed to participate in two more Pro Wrestling NOAH shows on October 20th in Korakuen Hall & October 28th in Fukuoka.

Speculation about Nakajima landing in New Japan Pro-Wrestling heated up today as SANADA announced on the Road To Destruction Night 17 event that a new member will be joining his Just 4 Guys faction. It was Just 5 Guys a few days ago until Yoshinobu Kanemaru turned on the faction and joined House of Torture.

Social media was abuzz today following SANADA’s announcement with fans predicting the new member of Just 4 Guys will be Katsuhiko Nakajima. Of course this all just speculation. It is the author’s opinion that the new member will be Yuya Uemura not Katsuhiko Nakajima.
