HUGE Japanese Star Heading to the WWE.....finally

Source: PWInsider

It was announced in Japan this morning that Pro Wrestling NOAH star KENTA will be leaving the promotion on May 17th.

We noted earlier this year that KENTA spent a week at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, working an informal tryout and training with some of the NXT talents.

KENTA returned to Japan and downplayed his time at the Performance Center. He later wrote a blog about always wanting to get a spot in WWE. KENTA claimed to Japanese media that he wasn't seeking a WWE deal but he would consider it if WWE offered.

Speculation now is that KENTA is headed to WWE but that's not confirmed yet. He's been with NOAH since they launched.
