One of the first recruits of Katsuyori Shibata’a LA Dojo, Alex Coughlin is making a name for himself as a Young Lion in NJPW. He is the powerhouse of the LA Dojo and doesn’t let the Young Lion restrictions hold him down, constantly able to explode in the ring with his versatile and unique neck-based offense. When Alex inevitably graduates from the LA Dojo and returns to Japan, he’s going to turn heads in the best way possible, a guaranteed future champion.

In this interview Alex talks about his life within New Japan under the tutelage of Katsuyori Shibata in the LA Dojo; his return from injury in an intense Strong match and back-to-back Bloodsport matches; why he puts so much effort into making his neck so powerful; his time spent in Japan including his Tokyo Dome debut; who he wants to face within New Japan; the “forbidden door”; his love of video games and much more!
