Naito tells Jay that he's a great talent which is why he recruited him to LIJ in the first place but he must learn patience and respect before he can truly get to the same level as himself.

....maybe. Ashino is going to be one of the main core guys at the top of the Jr division though.

WWE had Roman hold the Universal title for 13 months before losing to Balor. Jericho is currently the Smackdown Champ beating Orton. Wrestlemania 2019 was headlined by Orton vs Rusev with an undercard of Ellsworth vs Mike Kanellis ending in a double countout.
WWE released a ton of their women, Alexa Bliss is currently in Stardom while Bayley hasn't had a match in over a year.
It's July 2019 and Authors of Pain have held the NXT tag belts since January 2017, guess they're never getting called up.
GFW has been a mess but they signed Alicia Fox & Sasha Banks to their womens division.
