Fred Rosser is open to working everywhere in 2022, but New Japan is his main focus.
Fred Rosser openly spoke about trying to get into AEW and not hearing back from them. Fred wound up becoming a permanent fixture of New Japan STRONG. Now, he has had the opportunity to be in the ring with such names as Tom Lawlor and Minoru Suzuki, and in 2022, he's open to working in more promotions with the caveat that New Japan comes first.
Speaking exclusively with Sean Ross Sapp, Fred Rosser explains what it was like to work a few days for the NWA, his dad being a major supporter of him going to multiple promotions, and more.
"I did some matches with NWA, had a blast, but now my focus is not only New Japan but other organizations for 2022. I made it available on social media that anyone who wants to book me for speaking engagements or wrestling appearances, to DM me or contact me. I'm just open. Being with New Japan, I'm exclusive, so I have to make sure I don't double book myself and all that stuff. New Japan and New Japan STRONG comes first and everyone else comes after.
"I'm open to working again with NWA and a plethora of other organizations; DEFY, GCW, there is so much wrestling out there. Something to prove my dad wrong, he's the biggest wrestling fan and the one who got me into it. He's always saying, 'When are you going to be the next belt collector? When are you going to work for AEW?' I said, 'Dad, I tried not once, but twice, and they said no.' This was a couple of years ago. I have to prove my dad wrong and put it out there; I would love to work with AEW, NWA, IMPACT, a plethora of other organizations that are out there and prove him wrong."
Rosser continued, "Hopefully, in 2022, things can change for me. I'm open to everything. I'm a fan of all wrestling. CM Punk said it best, 'Don't get fooled into picking one organization over another, just watch it all.' Watch AEW, IMPACT, WWE. I have nothing bad or hateful to say about anything. I'm glad there's a lot of work for everyone and there's room for everyone at the finish line. We have to be able to enjoy it all."
Elsewhere in the interview, Rosser elaborates on how much New Japan means to him and details of why his recent promo against Team Filthy was so visceral and came from the heart. Learn more here.
