The New War in Pro Wrestling, and What Makes it so Unique


As we all know very well, WWE is basically the juggernaught of professional wrestling in the world and have been for a long time. They have stood the test of time and beaten some of the best wrestling companies there were, but there is a now new challenges in front of them the likes of which they have never faced before.

New Japan Pro Wrestling is not new, and I know this. The company has been around for just as long as the WWE and knows just as much as them, but they have been, obviously, mainly a Japanese pass time, as they are based and aired in Japan. They have made and boosted some of the biggest and best wrestling stars there ever were, such as Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe etc. They are almost as much as if not every bit as big, smart, and known as WWE, and have been gaining quite the cult following in America. As of late, certain reports have surfaced saying that New Japan wants to go international, if this is true then the WWE may find themselves inter twined in a new war much like the one they had with WCW: only this one could turn out to be much nastier. As many of you may know, New Japan does a lot of work with both ROH and TNA, and with the new relationship between TNA and Jeff Jarrett’s new company GFW, this could lead to a team effort to attack the WWE.
The reason I say this war could become much nastier is that there are many different factors to this war, and it’s a much different situation with more enemies that are more commonly known around the world than WCW was when it was starting off. When I say there are many different factors, I’m focusing more on all the backstage politics that are already going on and how they may effect the relationships between all the companies. TNA doesn’t seem to be getting along good with anybody other than New Japan as of late, as the partnership they had with ROH went down the drain once ROH got a TV deal on the same network as TNA, and the president of GFW Jeff Jarrett doesn’t seem to get along with anybody in TNA. Many have said that there can’t be any competition between WWE and New Japan as Jushin “Thunder” Liger is wrestling Tyler Breeze at the upcoming NXT Takeover event in Brooklyn, but there are two points that prove this theory wrong. The first is that the deal between Jushin and WWE is strictly that, a deal between the INDIVIDUAL worker Jushin and the company WWE, New Japan was not involved in the deal at all and were actually reported to be quite unhappy upon hearing the news. The second piece of evidence is that the event takes place at the same time as the ROH Field of Honor event being held in Brooklyn, while the WWE has been trying to tell everyone that it’s simply because Summerslam is being held in Brooklyn the night afterwards, let me ask you a question: Why would they take an event that’s been at the same place every year guaranteed and move it all the way to the other side of the country randomly? Just because they wanted to? I think not. I believe that the WWE are trying to compete with ROH at the moment and have moved both events to Brooklyn and to attempt and compete with them.
If this war is to happen, it could cause the next boom period in all companies, and truly cause a revolution in the pro wrestling world. While I personally do not see TNA lasting long enough to really make an impact on the war before getting bought out by either New Japan or Global Force Wrestling, it will still play an important part before they perish. What do you think? Would you like to see competition between the WWE, and New Japan and it’s allies? Tell me why or why not in the comments below
