Is Kota Ibushi AEW bound? – Kota Ibushi is now one of the top free agents in pro wrestling, and rumors abound as to where he might turn up next. The Young Bucks were asked about Ibushi potentially becoming All Elite, and the Jacksons had nothing but praise for the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion.

When asked by Dark Puroresu Flowsion about Ibushi, the Bucks said: Love him. Miss him. He kept us in the loop the night of Tokyo Dome about Kenny. Kept sending us little updates. Goes without question we’d love to have him around, or work with him. I think he has the ability to do whatever he wants.”

But the question on everyone’s lips is, will Kota Ibushi join AEW?  Ibushi answered a number of questions surrounding his next move, with the Japanese star being happy to be a free agent for now as money isn’t a major factor for him.

“About money, I think it’s very much unnecessary, but for me the things I care about and what’s necessary [for me] are more important. So I don’t want to be in a match without meaning. There aren’t a lot of matches without meaning, but I think I’ll show up in places in the future that truly and fully understand me,” said Ibushi. 

However, a stint in All Elite Wrestling isn’t completely off the table, as Ibushi explained that he wants to set up a ‘school’ in Japan before he can commit to something long-term:

“A lot of my best friends are in AEW. My younger peers in Japan are also growing up [there?]. Nonetheless, I don’t think of going to AEW immediately. I want to have a ‘school’ in Japan. Once that’s been worked out, I think I’ll talk with AEW.” 

Ibushi’s only confirmed appearances so far will take place over WrestleMania weekend. He will be competing at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport and Joey Janela’s Spring Break as part of the GCW Collective show.
