Rocky Romero States Importance of Jon Moxley During NJPW/AEW Talks

Last updated

New Japan Pro Wrestling performer and part-time commentator Rocky Romero recently discussed the working relationship between NJPW and All Elite Wrestling.

This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite ended with a bang, to say the least. NJPW performer KENTA entered the ring and attacked Jon Moxley, setting up their bout for the IWGP United States Championship match on NJPW Strong later this month.

Speaking to Wrestling Perspective, Rocky Romero would say just how important Jon Moxley’s involvement was in the coming together of the two companies.

“The idea of the whole thing, it really goes down to KENTA and Moxley” Rocky Romero began. “And how Moxley is basically the centerpiece of all this. He really is. As much as you want to say Kenny [Omega] is, but I really feel like Mox is because IMPACT even coming to AEW was to work with Moxley. Obviously, alongside Kenny. Then KENTA coming to AEW, showing up on Dynamite, really for one reason and one reason only, and that’s because Moxley is the IWGP US Heavyweight Champion.”

Romero also stated how difficult the relationship has been between the two parties. “The relationship with New Japan and AEW hasn’t been a good one” Rocky Romero stated. “Even though Tony Khan has been very cool with letting Jericho bring the AEW title at last year’s Wrestle Kingdom and little things like that. I mean, it just wasn’t really a great situation when the [Young] Bucks and Kenny and Cody [Rhodes] left New Japan.”
