Default Top american star in japan to sign with new japan?

New Japan's official site posted a picture of "Dr. Death" Steve Williams meeting with Yuji Nagata at New Japan offices. Williams said that he would like to team with Nagata, and should enter New Japan shortly. It's unknown at this point how much of a regular he'll be, as they seem to rotate foreigners now, and it's becoming rare that any one foreigner works two tours in a row.

Williams worked for New Japan a long time ago, and was the third man to ever challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight Title, fighting Antonio Inoki to a double countout at Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan on 10/25/87, before moving on to All Japan, where he obtained so much success. Williams would like to challenge for the IWGP throne again soon. New Japan has now acquired All Japan's three highest ranked foreigners (Williams, Barton, and Steele).
