NJPW and ROH Continue Relationship, All Elite Wrestling Is Not Involved

Last week representatives from New Japan Pro Wrestling, All Elite Wrestling, and Ring Of Honor were scheduled to meet on the future relationships between all parties.

Based on news from Dave Meltzer on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio we know the short term details of what agreements have been put in place.

New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring Of Honor will continue their working relationship. All Elite Wrestling will not be working with New Japan Pro Wrestling or Ring Of Honor for the time being.

Arrangements can always be worked out in the future, but as of now All Elite Wrestling has no agreements with either company.

All Elite Wrestling wanted to keep their talent in New Japan Pro Wrestling and work out a deal, but that did not happen.

Ring Of Honor and New Japan are contractually working together for the 4/1 Madison Square Garden show, which for now is exclusive to those companies. What happens after that show as far as working agreements goes can always be changed.

Kenny Omega seems to be stuck in the middle of all this, as he is leaving New Japan. Meltzer did state that All Elite Wrestling is confident that they will be able to sign Omega, but that is not confirmed, and there is now a choice between WWE and AEW.

All Elite Wrestling has also shown interest in Kota Ibushi, as his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling is expiring.

We should expect to hear more concrete information over the next few weeks, leading into All Elite Wrestling’s “Double Or Nothing” event, which is scheduled to be on Las Vegas this spring.

    Kota Ibushi might be as good a signing as omega. He is on fire.

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?

Seth Rollins has been vocal in recent weeks defending WWE, and his thoughts on Jon Moxley leaving the company for All Elite Wrestling.

During today’s SummerSlam conference call Rollins added his thoughts on Moxley’s departure, implying he is taking money out of his pocket by joining the competition.

“I was surprised by it. I knew Ambrose needed time away from WWE,” Rollins stated. “Now he’s competition and trying to take dinner off my table & good on him.”

Rollins didn’t pull any punches on the WWE vs. AEW war that is on the horizon. He was very blunt in stating WWE will knock AEW ‘dead”, just like they have done with other promotions in the past.

We are going to knock them dead, just like we do everyone else.” – Seth Rollins on AEW

All Elite Wrestling is scheduled to announce more details on their weekly television program , which is expected to begin on Wednesday October 2, 2019 on TNT.
