Rocky Romero Says He’s Not Working With AAA, Calls CMLL And AAA Partnership ‘Real Forbidden Door’

Rocky Romero isn't clamoring to return to AAA.

The relationship between the two biggest wrestling promotions in Mexico, AAA & CMLL, has been practically non existent for quite some time. The issue between the two companies has often spilled over into other working relationships, as AAA isn't fond of their performers working for promotions that CMLL has a relationship with.

In a new interview with Comedy Store Wrestling, Rocky Romero, who is a big name in both CMLL and New Japan Pro Wrestling, said that he has no interest in working with AAA.

"I’m definitely not working with AAA, I have no interest in working with AAA. I worked there in 2010ish, I jumped from CMLL to AAA. I can’t say that, never say never because it’s wrestling, I can’t say that I ever want to go back, to be honest. Not my favorite place to wrestle. With that being said, I know the politics between AAA wrestlers who are even contracted to AEW has been an issue in the past. Last year, Andrade, who is a contracted AEW wrestler, who wrestled in AAA three or four times that year, it was an issue for him to be on Forbidden Door. It sucks, but it is what it is."

Romero went on to note that the real forbidden door in wrestling is the relationship between CMLL and AAA, saying that the two companies should smooth things out a little bit.

"I’m doing my best to try and bridge the world of professional wrestling and get some of these old ideas and the way they’ve been practicing business for the last 30 or 40 years, I’m trying to see if there isn’t a little leverage or opening. The real forbidden door is CMLL and AAA. Not saying they need to work together, but smooth things over a little bit to where there’s a little more leniency, especially with something like this."

Elsewhere in the interview, Romero opened NJPW's doors to anyone in WWE that is fed up with the company. Fans can learn more by clicking here.
