New Japan star Juice Robinson recently appeared on Chris Jericho’s Talk is Jericho podcast, where he spoke on a variety of pro wrestling topics. One of those topics is his run in New Japan, where he has become one of the top guys.
The current IWGP United States Champion spent some time in WWE from 2011 to 2015, where he was known as CJ Parker. But things did not work out for the future Juice Robinson, who made it clear in this interview that he has no desire to leave New Japan.
“I want to be in New Japan until I have that feeling that I had in WWE. But I don’t think I’m every gonna have that feeling. I don”t think I’m gonna sit the bench, I’m always gonna contribute here in some way. I don’t think I’ll ever have the feeling where I need to leave or like, hitting the ceiling here.”
When cornered on whether or not he would ever regret not going back to Vince McMahon’s company, Juice’s answer was straight to the point.
“If I never walk through a curtain at WWE ever again, I won’t lose any sleep over it.”
Robinson has indeed grown during his time in New Japan, though he did say in the interview that he felt as though he was still the same person. But for the fans, Juice’s growth is obvious as he is now one the most charismatic and entertaining talents in the pro wrestling business.
Juice’s most recent match saw him compete at the G1 Supercard event in Madison Square Garden during WrestleMania 35 weekend. Robinson teamed with Mark Haskins and Flip Gordon in a winning effort against Bully Ray, Shane Taylor and Silas Young.
