Brian Pillman recently appeared on WrestlingINC’s WINCLY podcast. The current-MLW wrestler talked around the idea that he could wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling, essentially saying that he wants to work in Japan and that there’s no other company he’d rather work for in the country. Pillman did not say that there are talks between himself and the company but he didn’t say there weren’t.

“I’m not gonna say who it was, I’m not gonna say New Japan… But New Japan is a possibility, I didn’t say it, that’s how that goes,” Pillman said. “Just people talking, emails, stuff like that, nothing crazy, no dates are set in stone.”
He was not able to give a timetable but said it could be “soon.”
“But yeah, I’d like to go to Japan. I’d like to do it with the biggest company there, I don’t want to go over there and not be taken care of to the fullest extent,” he said. “So I think we’re gonna be over there in some capacity soon.”
