• Intention Behind AEW Partnering Up With Chinese Promotion Revealed
During the recent All Elite Wrestling rally, it was announced that they’ll be partnering up with Chinese Wrestling promotion OWE – Oriental Wrestling Entertainment.
During a recent interview with South China Morning Post, OWE Vice President Michael Nee had the following to say regarding their partnership with AEW:
“AEW knows OWE is doing really good in China with the Chinese kung fu and everything, and we have many talented wrestlers. We are based in China, they’re in the US, but working together we can be huge in the future, that’s the intention.
From the very beginning, we’re willing to do global matches like Japan, China, Asia, US and everywhere – we think wrestling is an international sport and entertainment. It should be global. AEW also would like to globalize and work with many countries, so on this point we have something in common. OWE will do everything to support AEW to bring the best wrestling to the world.
We are really working hard to let Chinese people know what wrestling is, the beauty of it. If all the Chinese people know OWE can work with the best leagues like AEW, it’s really good for us, and also we can get approval from the international fans.
We’re young, we’re just beginning, but we have the skills trained by CIMA, the martial arts schools, to compete and challenge with the best people globally. Everything from our perspective, we are thinking that’s good for us. What’s gonna happen in the future no one knows.”
