All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling have no intentions to work together in the future.

Following the departure of Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, and Cody, the relationship between the two promotions have been “fractured” according to the latest report from Dave Meltzer at Wrestling Observer Radio.

“The relationship is fractured, broken” Meltzer stated. “I hope it’s fixed, for the good of the industry, and for the good of everyone involved.” Meltzer explained how the subject of AEW is something that a “taboo” at New Japan Pro Wrestling.

“They do things a certain way, and there is subjects that are taboo, and right now for everyone at New Japan Pro Wrestling, Kenny Omega is a taboo subject, AEW is a taboo subject, they are not supposed to talk about it, and they all know they are not supposed to talk about it”

Three of All Elite Wrestling’s top performers, Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, and Jon Moxley all have the ability to work for New Japan, but no working relationship is scheduled anytime soon.

New Japan Pro Wrestling’s General Manager Michael Craven released a statement to Sports Illustrated in May, explaining the company has no ill will towards AEW, but has no intentions to work with them.

“New Japan and Jon Moxley came to terms on an agreement some time ago, completely independently of All Elite. Our understanding is that he is free to wrestle in Japan. We wish AEW well, but have no working relationship as of now

Jon Moxley stated in a recent appearance on the Store Horsemen Podcast that AEW had no influence on him not working New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax, and he simply was booked for another engagement, despite reports stating AEW blocked him from performing.

Jon Moxley will be making his Game Changer Wrestling debut at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 2 on September 14 in Atlantic City, NJ.

Bloodsport events feature matches that must end in either a knockout or submission. The ring features no ropes or turnbuckles, and the matches are presented in a MMA style. Although these bouts are worked, competitors work stuff and the matches have a semi-shoot feel.

At the last Bloodsport event Josh Barnett and Minoru Suzuki worked until a time-limit draw.

GCW and Josh Barnett are teaming up to bring back one of the most talked about events of the year when Bloodsport comes to The Showboat in Atlantic City on Saturday, September 14th!

It’s the ultimate hybrid. MMA meets Pro Wrestling in the most intense, physical, and groundbreaking event in years. Who will survive when shit gets real?
