Bronson Reed, formerly known as Jonah, seemingly wants to face Shinsuke Nakamura.
In a tweet on January 1, Reed noted that he wanted to choose violence to kick off the new year. He then directly called out Nakamura, who defeated Great Muta at Pro Wrestling NOAH’s New Year 2023 event on Sunday. Reed told Nakamura to find him on Monday nights, and he vowed to beat Nakamura like he beat Shinsuke’s “Chaos boy”.
I like to start the new year choosing violence.
Now that you're done with that old man, find me on Monday nights and I'll beat you like I beat your Chaos boy!

Reed returned to WWE on the December 19 episode of RAW, where he helped The Miz defeat Dexter Lumis in a Winner Takes All Ladder Match. Reed previously starred in NXT until he was released in a wave of cuts in August 2021. Following his departure, he had a prominent run in IMPACT Wrestling, and he also worked for NJPW for several months. He memorably defeated Kazuchika Okada during the G1 Climax 32 tournament in August. Okada beat Jonah in the latter’s last match with NJPW at the Declaration of Power event in October.
