10/8 Tokyo Dome partial card! by Stuart - 16 Sep 2005 - [Comments (77)]
Team JAPAN goes to war at the Tokyo Dome! Three matches were announced at last for the 10/8 Tokyo Dome show, all with a Team JAPAN vs. America theme, plus Chono thrown in. The three way match will go ahead, with Kazuyuki Fujita making his V1 defense of the IWGP Heavyweight Title against G1 winner Masahiro Chono and former WWE Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar. It is not everyone's ideal match, but should be a major spectacle combining "Japan's strongest", "America's strongest", and the New Japan icon.

I think he's just begging for WWE to sue the hell out of him.

It seems to me that he's being allowed to do it by WWE, either he's come to an agreement about his contract or they are using some events with wrestling companies that don't go head-to-head with WWE in order to get rid of his ring rust before bringing him back into a fairly big feud. I doubt WWE would put regularly updated pictures of him on their website's front page if they hadn't got plans for him.

At this point, I have no freaking clue what's up with the guy.

My best guess is that WWE wants him back, and offered him a fair and generous contract considering the financial position they're in now vs 3 years ago and taking into consideration the fact that he's a flight risk. Brock looked at it, said "me am worth more greenbacks, grrrrr! smash!"

Why is he wrestling in japan then? I dunno, he's hungry and realized he needs to do SOMETHING until vince accepts brock's counter-proposal... which apparently involves guarenteed millions as well as the option to marry into the McMahon family (he doesn't care which one).

My guess is, having all the leverage on their side, they didn't. So Brock pulled out of negotiations again. The house show schedule was always a big point of contention between them. However, if it came down to financial inequity, and WWE wouldn't offering something close to what they set as Brock's value with the contract in 2003, then essentially they were saying that you can either work for us for below-market-value or not work anywhere. So it's possible that someone advised him that the no-compete wasn't going to hold up if WWE wasn't willing to 'fairly' take him back under something resembling the old terms.

Or, the no compete clause might hold up in the United States but have no standing in Japan. Even if Vince were somehow to get a court injunction in the U.S., is there actually any chance that it would be enforced in Japan?

Well, they're not going to send cops to stop him from walking to the ring in Japan, but they're going to sue him in the US for breaking the terms of his contract.
