WrestlingInc, by way of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that former WWE Superstar and current Impact and Lucha Underground star John Morrison could be NJPW bound.

New Japan Pro Wrestling first opened its doors back in 1972, but it has only been within the past few years that it has seen a strong international presence.

With gaijin (foreign wrestlers) becoming more common in the promotion, NJPW is certainly growing in ways many people felt it never truly would.

At the moment, Superstars such as Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, The Young Bucks, Cody, Will Ospreay, Marty Scurll, Michael Elgin, Zack Sabre. Jr, Jay White, Juice Robinson, Bad Luck Fale, Killer Elite Squad, Beretta and others all compete for the promotion.

Now, if the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is to be believed, Morrison could be the latest gaijin to make his way over to the company.

Morrison has inquired into joining the company. He previously inquired, but due to his relationship with AAA, they were unable to reach an agreement. This is due to the working relationship with CMLL.

With Rey Mysterio working for AAA and now NJPW, it seems as if the fastest growing wrestling promotion in the business right now may well be on their way to getting a taste of Morrison.

Check out Morrison competing as Johnny Impact on Impact Wrestling below:
