Minoru Suzuki continues to take the United States by storm. Suzuki has a huge match with Bryan Danielson on the internet-exclusive AEW Buy-In show tonight. He’s also making his presence felt on the independent circuit. Now, the famed Japanese wrestler is taking his talents to Impact, proving that the Forbidden Door is completely off its hinges.
During last night’s Impact broadcast, a teaser video for Suzuki played to promote his arrival. It is unknown currently what the creative plans are for Suzuki’s stint on Impact. He is expected to start for the company at their tapings after the Bound for Glory pay-per-view.
Suzuki has appeared multiple times for All Elite Wrestling this year. In addition to his AEW run, he’s worked for GCW, PWX, and NJPW’s American promotion, Strong.
Tony Khan recently announced the YouTube Buy-In special as a response to WWE scheduling a half-hour overrun with no commercials following tonight’s normal SmackDown time slot.
The two companies have been at war this week. It’s been a constant game of one-upmanship. The ratings battle should be closer than people think, since SmackDown has been moved to Fox Sports 1 this week because of baseball.
Minoru Suzuki isn’t the only star from New Japan to find his way to Impact Wrestling recently. David Finlay, Juice Robinson, El Phantasmo, “Slingblade” Jay White, and Satoshi Kojima have all worked for the company in 2021.
