• WWE Discussing A Partnership With NJPW
According to the Wrestling Observer, Nick Khan (President & Chief Revenue Officer of WWE) is in talks with New Japan Pro Wrestling for a partnership with WWE.
Nick wants WWE to become the official US partner of NJPW. This deal (if happens) would see WWE send their wrestlers to NJPW (even their top stars)
These talks began in late March / early April.
NJPW has sent their wrestlers for matches in AEW and Impact Wrestling recently, and Nick wants the same to happen with WWE.
“With [Nick] Khan, the former isolationist attitude of WWE vs. everyone is changing with the idea WWE is part of the wrestling landscape and not separate from the pro wrestling landscape.”
