Report: Former NJPW Wrestler Karl Fredericks Spotted At WWE Performance Center

A former NJPW talent has reportedly been spotted at the WWE Performance Center.

Per Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Karl Fredericks was seen at facility earlier this week. Fredericks came up through the NJPW LA Dojo, and he graduated from the Young Lion system in 2020. He had ben featured on NJPW STRONG until he left the company on August 1, when he chose not to re-sign with the company following the expiration of his contract. In recent months, Fredericks has competed for UWN and West Coast Pro.

Additionally, Johnson noted that WWE closed the Performance Center for the day on September 28 due to safety concerns stemming from Hurricane Ian, which is currently making landfall in Florida. The company also postponed two live events in Florida this weekend.

WrestleZone will provide more information as it becomes available.
