New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced that they have launched an American subsidiary named New Japan Pro-Wrestling of America.
No other details are available yet but it sure looks like this could spell the end for their relationship with Ring Of Honor. I don’t see how that relationship can continue if New Japan is regularly running shows in the same cities as ROH.
It will also be interesting to see what the goal is with television and how this affects their relationship with AXS TV, now owned by Impact Wrestling’s parent company Anthem.
This also could mean that there are slim to none chances of seeing a relationship between New Japan and AEW.
This is obviously a huge story because now there’s a third major company with a lot of money competing for fans.
We’ll provide more details soon.
