AEW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho has made his desire known that he wants to see a working relationship between All Elite Wrestling and NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling).
It’s no secret that there is some bad blood between the two sides. The main reason for the issues is the fact that a few top stars jumped from NJPW to AEW including the likes of Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks, and Cody Rhodes.
Jericho beat Hiroshi Tanahashi at night two of Wrestle Kingdom 14 event in a singles match. After the match, Jericho spoke at a press conference about wanting to see this relationship.
“Put aside all the hurt feelings, put aside all the egos, put aside all issues and politics, and concentrate on great wrestling matches and big business. I haven’t been doing this at the highest level for the last 29 years and some people say the greatest of all time because I am a stupid business man, I can see the amount of money that we can make together with AEW and NJPW, both here in Japan, United States, Canada, England, Australia, and around the world.”
