WWE NXT GM William Regal posted the following on Twitter, commenting on New Japan star Jushin Liger appearing at the 8/22 NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn live special on the WWE Network and also implying to refute rumors about why Liger is coming in with NXT running head-to-head with ROH that night in Brooklyn and ROH’s current working agreement with New Japan:

“People are looking for a story where there isn’t one.Sometimes just being around enough you can call a friend. It really is as simple as me making a call to a friend I’ve known since 1986 to come and compete for @WWENXT.Really.Now please stop asking.”
