There is no doubt that Juice Robinson is one of the few fighters who have managed to take a step forward in his career after leaving WWE. To corroborate this, he recently won the IWGP United States Championship.
Robinson is working an important path in the New Japan Pro Wrestling. Dave Meltzer puts him at the level of Roman Reigns but with possibilities to grow more.
And it seems that now WWE would like to have it back. This is indicated by Dave Meltzer in the recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
“The company[WWE] has a great interest in Juice Robinson. He has begun to appear on the website Being the Elite, which seems to be the best way to raise the profile of an independent before the US audience.
“Robinson did not do very well in his first stage with WWE, but even in the microphone classes with Dusty Rhodes, he was considered the best. His current profile is the largest and is based on the reaction he achieves with the microphone as well as his recent struggles, particularly that of Jay White at Cow Palace.
“A good number of New Japan’s regular fighters are not under contract, something similar to AJ Styles when he was there, so, legally, WWE can get close to them. With others, they must act with caution, but they are making their moves. “
We’ll have to wait to see what happens. Formerly known as CJ Parker, he came to WWE in 2011, beginning to work in the territory of development. He never called too much attention, and even he said he was not allowed.
