The ranks keep growing. On tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, New Japan superstar Kenta made his debut with the company. He appeared in a segment with Jon Moxley in the closing moments of the show.
He made his debut by attacking Moxley after his battle with Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers. After it looked like Moxley was going to continue to beat down Kenny Omega, Kenta appeared and laid out Moxley with the GTS. This is to continue their feud for the IWGP United States championship, which Moxley holds.

Kenta has most recently been in New Japan Pro Wrestling as a member of Bullet Club. His debut is a part of the crossover between New Japan and AEW. You can see a clip of him joining Bullet Club below:
Kenta wrestled as Hideo Itami in WWE from 2014-2019. He was featured as a part of NXT and 205 Live, but never on Raw or Smackdown.
I have always been a big fan of his and it’s great to see him back on mainstream television in the United States. I always felt that he was never used properly in WWE and I hope that he continues to have a ton of success moving forward!
