According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer NJPW is currently expecting to continue to work with Ring Of Honor and currently they aren’t working with All Elite Wrestling. The following is from his latest episode Wrestling Observer radio (subscription required):
“New Japan has made the decision that they are going to work with Ring of Honor and at least for right now they are not working with All Elite which is a really interesting dynamic because I know that even as late as a couple days ago All Elite was kind of thinking that you know maybe Kenny Omega would work for New Japan and All Elite both and they would be able to – Elite wanted to keep their talent working in New Japan and wanted to partner with New Japan on events and that’s not gonna happen at least for right now. Who knows what happens in the future, but that’s the thing right now and that may have cost them Kenny Omega.”
The company is not only losing the talent of The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, Adam Page, KUSHIDA, but Omega is another valuable commodity that a decision like this from NJPW may have been a factor in him taking a leave of absence from his primary home.
