AEW-NJPW working relationship appears to be a possibility

Since the launch of AEW, there has been talk of whether All Elite Wrestling and NJPW can have a working relationship.

There are a few AEW stars that have worked for NJPW in the past and are still aligned with the promotion, but haven’t wrestled in theNew Japan Pro Wrestling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hiroshi Tanahashi made an appearance for Chris Jericho’s 30th Anniversary Celebration in AEW, but it’s been mostly one-sided in the favor of NJPW up to this point.

AEW now has a working relationship with Impact Wrestling as Don Callis has made appearances for All Elite Wrestling and Kenny Omega will appear on Tuesday’s episode of Impact.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “AEW’s attitude right now is to work with everyone, whether it be Impact, New Japan, AAA or NWA.”

It was noted that AEW President Tony Khan has regularly talked with Rocky Romero as of late “to try and open doors to New Japan, feeling the odds are better to do something with Harold Meij gone.”

During Dynamite, Omega did the rainmaker pose, made famous by Kazuchika Okada, which was talked about by the announcers. Meltzer pointed out that the door is open for matches between AEW and Impact stars such as a Young Bucks vs. Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson contest.
