It was previously reported that NJPW Star & Current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Kota Ibushi has signed a new deal with the promotion to keep him until 2021. In a recent press conference, Ibushi announced that he had a new contract with NJPW and that he would stay with the promotion until the day he dies.
Ibushi said, “To me, this is the last place I’ll be.” “Until the day I die. Until the end. That’s my contract period. ”
Aside from currently being The IWGP Intercontinental Champion, Ibushi is also a three-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion, one-time NEVER Openweight Champion & one-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champion.

In a February interview with ShuPro, Ibushi commented on why he decided to chose NJPW over AEW.
Ibushi said, “The second I went, that would be the end of my wrestling career, I thought,” “What I realized [talking to AEW] was I really don’t care about money. … AEW said they just want me in their ring in some form. The ideal for them was for me to move to America and be there full-time. I turned them down just after Wrestle Kingdom. … If I went it would be the end of my career. There wouldn’t be anywhere else to go after that. No step up, nothing left to do. That would be the last step to make, and after that things would just go down. Great money, but I want to keep developing.”
