2019 will be a historic year in the world of professional wrestling. Landmark events are about to happen and now one major meeting 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-announced All Elite Wrestling. The idea will be to have a working relationship, however, once performer exclusivity contracts come into play, that might prove to be difficult.
“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.”
It is a question of how the three companies will even work together. We can only know what went on in the meeting, after Wrestle Kingdom 13. Perhaps this will change the wrestling business in ways. So we will have to wait and see what happens.
