Can you blame him? There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster but not all of them are happy. Sometimes you see a wrestler leave after not being happy with their time in the company. For one reason or another, the two sides fall apart and something goes wrong, leading to the two of them splitting. That seems to have been the case again and now we know a bit more about what happened.
Earlier this week, Kushida reportedly left WWE after three years with the company. According to the Voices of Wrestling Patreon by way of Wrestlinginc.com, NXT becoming NXT 2.0 was a major change for Kushida, who did not like how he was being presented on the show. Kushida is currently hoping to return to New Japan and has already begun pitching ideas for how he would be presented upon returning.
Opinion: Can you blame Kushida being frustrated with what he was doing in NXT? He hadn’t wrestled a meaningful match in a long time and seemed to be there to get over Ikemen Jiro in a tag team built around either a jacket or a bad pun, depending on how you looked at it. That isn’t worth his time and now he is leaving, which should be the case for someone as good as he is.
What did you think of Kushida’s time in NXT? What would you have liked to see him do there? Let us know in the comments below.
