Many fans that watch wrestling outside of the WWE will know about the likes of TNA, NJPW, ROH and several other independent wrestling organisations that have seen their stars move on to the WWE to become even bigger stars.
Recent news by Wrestling Inc has said the WWE has signed New Japan Pro Wrestling stars AJ Styles, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson and current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura. This news will bring huge delight to indies wrestling fans.
The article also said that there wasn't any indication as to when the four would begin their work with the WWE, "but Nakamura apparently is not leaving early as he will most likely drop his title before leaving."

It also said: "Anderson, Gallows and Nakamura are expected to honor their Ring of Honor dates for February and AJ is likely done with ROH going forward."
Further speculation was added last night when AJ Styles followed WWE's Triple H last night on Twitter. We may be looking too deep into the aspect of one of the world's top indie stars being in the WWE, but one can dream.
In a separate article on Wrestling Inc, they interviewed AJ Styles and asked him if he still had an interest in working in the WWE considering its hectic schedule.
He said: "The first thing that I'd have to find out is will I be able to support my family? Who knows? I'm going to do what's best for them. I know people get tired of me saying that, but that's the reality that I live in. I love to wrestle, I get to do it for a living. Ultimately, it's decided where I go on the business of wrestling. Never say never, right? So I'm going to go where business takes me."
Many fans will be counting down the days until they see Styles, Anderson, Gallows and Nakamura in the WWE but the question is whether these established wrestlers will debut in NXT or on the main roster.
