Following NJPW's Power Struggle event this weekend, KENTA picked up a victory over Hiroshi Tanahashi to become the new NJPW United States Champion.
During the post-show press conference, KENTA decided to call out CM Punk.
"After three years, I finally prove who the f**k I am, baby. I’m the United States Champion. It doesn’t matter if it’s going to happen or not, but I just want to entertain you guys. I want to give you guys a home. Hey, CM Punk! I’m ready to put you to sleep."
KENTA does not yet have an opponent to defend the belt against.
