Juice Robinson Returns To New Japan Pro Wrestling

Former-IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Juice Robinson made a startling return on Sunday. Arriving clad in a balaclava and a Bullet Club vest, Robinson attacked IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi and stole the title belt from the new champion.

Robinson had initially feigned leaving NJPW after a Chicago Street Fight in April, after the company’s Windy City Riot event. Much to-do was made on commentary about it being Robinson’s final match under the NJPW banner. Robinson even mentioned that his contract expired on April 30th and that he had not re-signed.

Wrestling Dontaku is historically a big night for Bullet Club, which formed around Wrestling Dontaku on May 3rd, 2013, and this year’s event was no different. Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens picked up the IWGP Tag Team Titles, Taiji Ishimori won the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title, and The Good Brothers returned to Japan for the first time since 2016.
