TENRYU MAKES SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT FIRST FOREIGNER TO ENTER THE "ADVANCED REVOLUTION TRAINING" DOJO
After it was revealed that Genichiro Tenryu had convinced the legendary luchador Dos Caras and current Japanese star Ultimo Dragon to join his Revolution stable and compete on his own WAR events that also would include working for him to develop new talent in the mold of the young stars who had been developed by Gran Hamada like The Great Sasuke, TAKA Michinoku, Dick Togo, and Ultimo Dragon himself, it had slipped unofficially that he was also interested in shaping the development of wrestlers who had yet to be involved with the SWS or WAR dojos who were older but intriguing prospects who would continue training with ones who had started or transferred there early like Nobutaka Araya, Masaaki Mochizuki, Shigeo Okumura, & Yuji Yasuraoka, under the guidance of tough veterans like The Great Kabuki, Takashi Ishikawa, & Masanobu Kurisu, and that he had no issue admitting foreigners.
And we now know who that first foreigner will be, and it may come to a surprise to many pro wrestling fans. 32 year-old Jerome Young, better known for his runs in Smoky Mountain Wrestling and Extreme Championship Wrestling as simply "New Jack" will be that entrant into the dojo. When asked for comment, Tenryu said that he had heard many things that he couldn't pretend that he didn't like about Young; his fearlessness and toughness being unparalleled. He knew that he had originally been trained by the late Ray Candy, a bruising man he had wrestled several times in both Japan and the United States, and of whom he recalled fondly. Through a translator, he said that he admitted that Young was a unique choice, but that he had the heart to do well and that "risks are worth taking".
As for Young, when he himself was contacted, he said that he had learned that "life is too fucking short" to not test yourself, and the worst thing that could happen was a "tremendous vacation where I'm just there to beat the hell out of any punk who tries to fuck with me".
