After four years with the company, Michael Elgin has parted ways with New Japan Pro Wrestling and is officially a free agent.
NJPW confirmed the news last night saying “Big Mike” left the company after his contract expired.
“After careful consideration and dialogue, Elgin and NJPW have mutually decided to part ways after his contract expired on March 31, 2019,” the promotion said in a statement. “We wish Michael Elgin nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”
The 32-year-old Canadian debuted for the company in 2015 during the G1 Climax tournament. He’d go on to capture the IWGP Intercontinental Championship on one occasion.
