2019 will be a monumental year in the world of professional wrestling. Landmark things keep on happening on a daily basis and one huge meet is reportedly scheduled to take place following Wrestle Kingdom 13. The meeting will be between ROH, AEW and NJPW.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that there will be a meeting between the heads of the three companies, Ring Of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling and the newly-formed All Elite Wrestling. The idea will be to have a working relationship, however it will be a huge task.
“There’s a meeting tomorrow with Ring Of Honor, All Elite, and New Japan and we’ll see how that goes. My strong impression is that I think that everyone wants to work together. I don’t know politically how it’s going to work out. I don’t think it’s impossible by any means, but there’s always going to be issues.”
“I think that New Japan doesn’t want to not have Kenny Omega, I don’t think that at all. Kenny Omega is the wildcard. WWE made a fantastic offer to him. Obviously New Japan wants to keep him. All Elite wants him. He’s in an interesting position.”
The biggest issue might just be dates in the United States. ROH talent are allowed to perform in the indies, and it is believed that it will be the same case for AEW. However, the performers from both companies might not be able to appear on each other’s promotions. NJPW is a different deal as the events mostly take place in Japan.
So until the meeting happens, we will have to wait. We will keep you updated on the situation.
