It sounds like Jonah Rock (formerly known as Bronson Reed in WWE) might not be a free agent for much longer.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select reports that multiple promotions are interested in signing Reed, with sources in New Japan Pro-Wrestling suggesting that the company has made “a big play” to land him. If the two sides reach a deal, Jonah will become the second former NXT star to recently sign with NJPW, as the company announced Buddy Matthews, formerly known as Murphy, will be debuting at NJPW Battle in the Valley.
Additionally, Ross Sapp reports that IMPACT Wrestling is interested in the former NXT North American Champion, who was released by WWE on August 6. Per Ross Sapp’s report, IMPACT sources don’t seem confident the company will reach an agreement in time for Bound For Glory weekend, though “it was discussed.”
WrestleZone will provide more details as they become available.
