NJPW is currently doing very well, they pretty much dominate Japan. In that regard, the biggest Japanese names are out of most indies' price range. That said, there's still puro and joshi wrestlers in the US indies.

What I would really love is a reinvention of how the WWE treats puro wrestlers, so we can get some top Japanese talent in WWE to be treated right, but that would take a total overhaul of the way they look at talent. If I were WWE, I'd look into putting together a partnership with NJPW, to get some talent exchanges and cross promotion (lord knows a few of WWE's wrestlers would benefit from 6 months of training in Japan's dojos). Japan's a strong market for wrestling that's underused by WWE.
