Prior to the November 10 episode of AEW Dynamite, New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Rocky Romero invited Orange Cassidy and Best Friends (Chuck Taylor, Trent, Kris Statlander and Wheeler Yuta) to join CHAOS, and the group accepted.
Romero told “Freshly Squeezed” and his pals that “The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada himself wants all of them to join his stable. Though Taylor protested by pointing out that Yuta is a borderline member of Best Friends, Romero emphasized that he was still welcome to join. Taylor, who was a member of the group from 2017-2019, subsequently agreed to the invitation, so Best Friends have officially joined forces with CHAOS.
This stable that has been featured in NJPW since 2009; the group currently includes Okada, Romero, Mikey Nicholls, Robbie Eagles, Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano, Yoh, and YOSHI-HASHI.
