WWE and NJPW are working on something and talks have been going on for about two months now. Tony Khan obviously didn’t think there was a great risk of this deal happening as he cast a major shadow over Nick Khan.
According to Wrestling Observer Bulletin, the deal between WWE and NJPW would not have seen big stars coming from New Japan to Vince McMahon’s company. The idea of ââKazuchika Okada battling Randy Orton does not come true. This deal was actually more focused on helping the NXT brand.
The deal we talked about would have been more likely focused on NXT and would have things beneficial to both parties and it’s not like WWE is going to buy New Japan or bring in Kazuchika Okada to work for Randy Orton or all of them. the mad speculation of the past week.
This is an interesting situation, as it has also been reported that the intention of this deal is not to âknock outâ AEW from its deal with NJPW. Of course, if New Japan Pro-Wrestling agreed to an exclusive partnership with WWE, it would prevent AEW and Impact Wrestling from working with NJPW. We will have to see how this situation evolves.
It was stated that discussions are still ongoing between WWE and NJPW. President Nick Khan obviously has some sort of plan that will benefit both parties.
