One by one, Kushida has turned back of anybody who’s stepped his way, from NXT UK’s Kassius Ohno to 205 Live’s Drew Gulak, and he’s only getting started.

As he explained last week on NXT TV, Kushida welcomes the chance to test himself against WWE’s best, regardless of brand affiliation. The open call was a heavy gauntlet for Kushida to throw down, but he’s not without his takers.

While addressing a press corps earlier today, NXT General Manager William Regal confirmed that Kushida’s campaign will continue next week when he faces none other than SmackDown LIVE’s Apollo Crews!
