Priestley recently wrapped up a stint in New Japan Pro-Wrestling where she was paired with Jeff Cobb, Great-O-Khan and the new IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay. Bea last appeared for NJPW after the 2021 New Japan Cup when she was given a Cutter by Ospreay after his tournament win.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline noted that when she chose to not sign a new deal with New Japan, she also made the decision to not re-sign with STARDOM. Priestley is leaving Japan as a whole.
