WWE may be going after several New Japan Pro Wrestling stars but don’t expect to see IWGP United States Champion Juice Robinson making the jump anytime soon.
As previously reported by Dave Meltzer, WWE has “great interest” in signing him. However, following his loss to Kenny Omega at the G1 Climax 28 tournament (night 8), Robinson was asked about WWE and he flat out said that he is not going back there and he has no plans to ever go back there.
Robinson said, “That’s in the rear view mirror now. I ain’t going back, I ain’t ever going back.”
Listen to Robinson’s comments below:
"I ain't going back. I ain't ever going back."

Robinson is just 29 years old so he can spend a few more years in NJPW before thinking about jumping to WWE. We’ll see if he feels the same way in a couple of years when WWE goes back to him with a big money offer. Many wrestlers have said that they would never work for WWE but time heals all wounds and people change.
