WWE has been making some very interesting moves in the last few months. Now they are discussing a deal that no fan saw coming. WWE President Nick Khan is spearheading a deal to become the exclusive United States partner for New Japan Pro Wrestling.

NJPW has worked with AEW and Impact Wrestling recently. That “Forbidden Door” was opened and it provided an opportunity for even more matches. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that a landmark deal between WWE and NJPW could be on the way.

At this time there are “no indications where talks are at past they date back to late March or early April.” This deal would include WWE sending sending talent to NJPW, including “top stars.”

It was said that this deal between WWE and NJPW was spearheaded by Nick Khan, who has changed the company’s “isolationist attitude.”


With Khan, the former isolationist attitude of WWE vs. everyone is changing with the idea WWE is part of the wrestling landscape and not separate from the pro wrestling landscape.

WWE’s intentions are also to keep NJPW from working with other companies which would strengthen WWE’s opposition in the United States. It was also reported that many younger Superstars might have goals of working with NJPW, because they grew up watching tapes or YouTube.

This deal would see NJPW discontinue their working relationship with all other North American pro wrestling companies. There are a ton of questions regarding this deal that are not clear yet, but the two sides are apparently discussing the possibility of a working relationship.
