On October 12, 2015, New Japan is doing their annual King of Pro Wrestling pay per view, and they have enlisted the aid of Matt Striker to do English commentary. Management has been putting more effort into reaching a potentially huge fan base in the United States. They tried that recently with their partnership with Jeff Jarrett and Jim Ross. The belief is that the heavily underrated Striker was chosen over Ross because his rate is not nearly as high.

Jarrett and Ross then turned to Matt Striker, an underrated talker that was released from WWE back in June of 2013 when his contract expired.
