Wrestling News World reader Hiroaki Kawafuji sent word that WWE Japan has announced that KENTA will sign his WWE contract at the July 12, 2014 live event in Osaka, Japan. This is the same news reported by Tokyo Sports over the weekend.
KENTA has long been rumored to be WWE bound since visiting the WWE Performance Center earlier this year. At the time, Triple Hpaid extra attention to KENTA's workout but was leaning towards not signing him because of how he felt after getting burned by Sin Cara. However, unlike Cara, KENTA is known for his humility.
