Former WWE star A-Train, real name Matt Bloom, who will be playing the Lord Tensai character, posted the following on Twitter:
@GiantBernard (Matthew Bloom): Want to wish all my @NJPW1972 family a successful NJPW Cup. Wish I could be there but something came up. @Machinegunka get it done! (Referring to his NJPW tag partner, Karl Anderson)
Quick Quip: Sometimes breaking stories like this take away all the surprise from pro-wrestling. Although, it’s not like A-Train made a huge impact on his first go around.
