It was heavily rumoured. Was it confirmed he switched contracts?

Logical booking and being blessed with a crazy talented roster. If you want to get into numbers then they're still not doing GREAT last I heard. I think they're running on a profit now though so the money figures are improving just not at the same rate as the quality of the product which really is all fans care about for the most part. They always draw strong crowds too which is the important thing. The industry in Japan as a whole is struggling right now for sure but New Japan are far exceeding what any other promotion is doing in virtually every aspect.
