NJPW has made their choice between All Elite Wrestling and Ring of Honor.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, New Japan officials have decided to continue to work with Ring of Honor moving forward and won't be working with All Elite. It was previously reported that officials from all three organizations were set to meet after Wrestle Kingdom 13 in order to strike a working relationship. ROH and NJPW currently have a working relationship and are set to hold a joint Supercard at Madison Square Garden in April. AEW was hoping to work with NJPW as well, but for now, the two companies will not be in business together.
Meltzer reports that NJPW's decision to not work with AEW "may have cost them Kenny Omega."
Omega announced last night that he will no longer be working with NJPW moving forward. On the latest episode of Being The Elite, it was heavily teased that Omega would be signing with AEW. WWE reportedly made him "a fantastic offer" as well. Nothing is official as to which company Omega will sign with.
All members of The Elite wrestled for NJPW at their annual Wrestle Kingdom event on Jan. 4. However, there was no Elite presence the next night at New Year Dash!!
AEW is set to hold a rally tomorrow, Jan. 8, in Jacksonville. More details about the company are expected to be announced.
