In a recent interview with the Ringsiders Wrestling podcast, IMPACT Wrestling superstar Chris Bey discussed several topics, including being announced as one of the 8 entrants for the NJPW Super J-Cup 2020.

“To be honest man, it just happened, finesse, I don’t know bro, I just be working and doing my thing and I got contacted by Rocky Romero, he put the invite out for me and him and Scott D’Amore had a conversation, so he let me know once again, Scott D’Amore and the business that we do, it’s great business and I know that he and Scott had conversation. He asked me, he told me he had already talked to Scott and it was something that I was 100% available for and open to and here we are.

I didn’t know when everything would be announced or if it was going to be announced or how that process was going to happen, but it was like 2am my time and I got the notification and liked the New Japan post and I’m just like, oh sweet, now we open up the floodgates so now the world knows and it’s another one of those things where it’s just like, man I’m completely blessed and fortunate, people ask me what’s my strategy going into it or what am I going to do to separate myself and I don’t need to, the only thing I need to do is be The Ultimate Finesser and be Chris Bey, because I’m here for a reason and once again, it goes back to when I was in the 205 Live scenario.

Once I get in the ring, no matter if the buckles read New Japan or IMPACT or whatever it reads, J-Cup on the canvas, I don’t care what it is, that ring is my ring. I know what the ring is, I know what to do in the ring and I finesse and I put on a show and I entertain, so I just look forward to tapping into a whole new market and showing a whole new legion of fans who I am and what I bring to the table and what I plan to do for many years to come in this business.”
