New Japan fires back at Jim Ross!

Scroll down a bit and you'll see the article I wrote on Jim Ross' uncalled comments he made regarding puroresu last week on Byte This!. Well, I know I'm not the only one who sees things that way and now even New Japan Pro Wrestling has voiced their unhappiness with JR's comments. New Japan head honcho Antonio Inoki took the comments as an insult to puroresu (and they were!) and he announced that he told NJPW management to sign former WWE stars to help prove to the world that New Japan is the greatest pro-wrestling company. Steve Austin and Brock Lesner were obvious names he hinted, and they already have Ultimo Dragon and Sean O'Haire signed on to work the NEXESS Tokyo Dome show this monday.

WWE were also planning on purchasing footage of Chris Benoit during his time in Japan from New Japan for an upcoming Chris Benoit DVD (Probably Eddie Guerrero too since he worked for New Japan before as well), But that possibility seems out of the question at the moment due to NJPW taking offence to JR's comments. Nice going JR!
