He’s in. There are all kinds of wrestlers on the WWE roster, many of whom have wrestled around the world in other promotions. Those stars have a reputation for their work outside of WWE and it can be a big deal if one of them heads to another promotion after leaving WWE. In this case though, one of them is going to another promotion without even leaving WWE in the first place.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: All Done: WWE Superstar Confirms New Deal With The Company

Over the weekend, Pro Wrestling Noah has announced that WWE’s AJ Styles will be facing Naomichi Marufuchi at the July 13 Noah event. This will be Styles’ first match with the promotion and it is not clear if he will wrestle for Noah more than once. WWE has worked with the promotion before, including allowing Shinsuke Nakamura to wrestle for the company in January.


There is a lot of talent to be seen here. Check out what is coming to Noah:

Opinion: This is the kind of surprise that you would not have seen from WWE for a long time and it is rather cool to see the company spreading out a bit like this, just for a change of pace. Having Styles show up for one match in another promotion is not likely going to do any serious damage to WWE and also lets Styles do something different. Why not see how well it can go?

What do you think of the idea? Who else from WWE would you like to see guest wrestle elsewhere? Let us know in the comments below.
