Fred Rosser wants to fight a big name at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2.
With the collaborative pay-per-view rapidly approaching, many stars are beginning to throw their names in the hat in order to get a spot on what is likely to be one of the biggest pro wrestling shows of the year.
One of those stars is Fred Rosser, who is arguably one of the pillars of the NJPW STRONG brand. In a new interview with The Wrstling Podcast, Rosser was asked to name someone that he'd like to face at Forbidden Door 2.
“Hm, who would I like to wrestle from their side. That’s a good question, I'm just focused with New Japan. Who would I want to wrestle? I’d wanna wrestle Chris Jericho, CM Punk, it would be full circle with CM Punk, he was my coach on the original NXT, which was like a game show, which I hated. He pretty much hated doing it too, during the time we didn’t really say two words to one another. Full circle, I'm a lot older, I'm a lot wiser. I’m like wine, I age gracefully with time. I definitely feel like working against [either of them], Jericho or CM Punk, would help elevate me.”
Rosser recently competed at NJPW STRONG's Resurgence event on Sunday, May 21. Fans can find Fightful's full report on the show by clicking here.
