I mean Liger worked NXT a few years ago while still being on the NJPW roster. The chances are slim that Vince would agree to bring in Liger but it could possibly happen in NXT if HHH can get Vince to allow Rey to work for NXT one night against Liger.

Great to see Liger and Rey still going strong. One thing I like, especially in Reys case is when old timers used to say that the high flyers and bump takers of the day would be crippled by 40. Turns out some of them actually knew what they were doing and could have long careers.
Liger has always been my poster boy for working smarter not harder. Yeah, he's spent the last fifteen years doing some crazy high spots, but the point is he doesn't do them often when he does bust one out it means something Liger is probably the best there's ever been at logical storytelling in the context of a wrestling match. This why he's still going strong at 54 years of age. Early on he grasped the concept of "less is more" and embraced it. Think about his work in the late 1990s and early 2000s; amazing high-spots, right?
Now re-watch some of those matches that we remember as bell to bell high spots. They weren't, not even close to it, Blitzkrieg's were, because that's all he could do, string a bunch of high spots together and call it good. This is also why he's still going while most of his contemporaries are long since retired or working their assess off in front of "crowds of 140 people".
