Rocky Romero, who has been working with New Japan Pro Wrestling for over a decade, has re-upped with the company for the next 2 years.
With the recent defections of four major NJPW stars to WWE, there were rumblings that WWE had interest in Romero as well.
While Romero wouldn’t have been as high profile a signing, WWE still thought he’d be a good player/coach for NXT.
After Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows, Shinsuke Nakamura and A.J. Styles all gave notice on Monday, there had been speculation that Romero, Bad Luck Fale and Tama Tonga could follow suit.
Romero is mainly part of a tag team, Roppongi Vice, with Trent Baretta, working for both New Japan and Ring of Honor.
