The reason for that is due to several top stars in AEW, who also serve as executives in the company such as Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks, previously worked for NJPW prior to the launch of AEW.
It was reported earlier this week that there were no plans for Kota Ibushi to appear in AEW despite him being shown in a video for Omega’s entrance on AEW Dynamite this past week.
Nick Jackson took to his official Twitter account where he let a fan know there is no chance of a relationship between All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
“It’s really not happening. Been asked this thousands of times and telling the truth is always best. Don’t want fans holding onto something that has zero chance of happening.”
