KENTA has some heavy words regarding his life and career after his loss to Juice Robinson on night two of B-Block action in G1 Climax 30.
KENTA was briefly in WWE as Hideo Itami. While he was there, he crossed paths with CJ Parker, who is now known as Juice Robinson. It took several years, but these men finally met inside the ring during the B-Block of New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s G1 Climax 30 Tournament.
Even though the match saw Juice pick up a victory over KENTA, KENTA’s post-match remarks were filled to the brim with passion, as he discussed his time in WWE alongside Robinson, and he still believes that this is his tournament to win.
“Back in 2014, Juice and I were in the same company, which is 'the best' company in this business,” KENTA began. “At the time, Juice was a different character and also that was a different style. After a couple of years, we finally met [in] New Japan Pro-Wrestling. To be honest, to be honest, this is huge. Even [though] I lost the match, I don't care. That's a good story. But again, Juice, next time I'm gonna pay you back, okay?”
Continuing on, KENTA had strong words for those who like to talk negatively about his career.
“I think it's not important where you are. It doesn't matter wherever you are, the most important thing is what you are doing. At least we can be what we want to be. If you guys want to talk shit about my career or my wrestling, please do so. I don't give a fuck. It's my fucking life! Even if I lost today, G1 Climax 30 is going to be my G1.”
