It should be noted that TNA and New Japan have been working together for a while now. WWE’s very public coverage of the meeting with New Japan could be another shot at TNA, similar to the time they ran a story on “Jarrett At WWE Headquarters” when Jerry Jarrett was there not too long ago.
It’s been previously reported that TNA has plans for another World X-Cup sometime this year, and they would very likely want talent from New Japan to compete in.
It’s unknown right now whether the meeting between Inoki and WWE was a serious one, and if so what effects it would have on their relationship with TNA.
