Kenny also mentioned some New Japan Pro-Wrestling names when asked who he would like to sign from any company. "he’s been talked about a lot lately, so I’d like to either be able to give him the platform or shut him up," Kenny said in reference to Will Ospreay. In addition to Ospreay, Kenny also said he would want to sign his Golden Lovers tag team partner, Kota Ibushi.
