Default What Is Jushin Liger's Role In NJPW?

I first saw this guy back in 1991 while he was in WCW. As a 9 year old kid I was mesmerized by the flashy costume, bright colors and high flying moves. His matches with Pillman were gold.

I've recently gotten into NJPW and was shocked to see him still wrestling. For a 50 year old guy he moves pretty good. But I don't see in any storylines or meaningful matches. He's usually in throw away tag, 6 man or 8 man tags.

When is the last time he did anything on a grand stage? Is he only there to put guys over/give guys a rub?

Liger is over as fuck in New Japan , Pretty much there to draw and in my opinion he can still go , but it's obvious his body is in bits

I get that he is over, but why don't they do anything with him? I'm still waiting for AJ/Liger

That could simply be something to do with him not wanting to take spots. He's over just being there, and probably realizes that he isn't a top star anymore in terms of the condition of his body. Similar to Jericho in WWE.

Liger is a junior, Styles is a heavyweight. Never going to happen.

Liger is 209lbs. and AJ is 215lbs. Not much of a difference, plus I hear Muta is coming in to face Liger at WK9 and he is 240lbs.

Yeah because it's never been known for a Jr Heavyweight to face a Heavyweight in Japan

Only on special occasions in New Japan. It is highly unlikely that we will ever see Liger vs. Styles in a one on one match.
