#4. Karl Fredericks could be The United Empire's US addition
Karl Fredericks is another strong contender to join The United Empire. Currently competing for NJPW Strong in the USA, Fredericks has been promoted from the Young Lion spot and is doing quite well on his own.
That being said, Fredericks could also be in contention to finally return to Japan and align himself with The United Empire. Having changed his in-ring appearance, Fredericks has all the potential to fit right in with Will Ospreay and co.
Despite having claimed that he doesn't need any friends in NJPW, Fredericks joining The United Empire shouldn't surprise one. The first member Ospreay recruited in The United Empire was The Great O-Khan, who made his return from an excursion to the United Kingdom to join the faction.
With Fredericks not being a part of the New Japan Cup USA this year, there is a possibility for him to soon return to Japan.
Similarly, The Commonwealth Kingpin could follow the same trend and provide Karl Fredericks with a spot in The United Empire, and help him adjust on his return to Japan.
