Rocky Romero is now working as part of AEW’s front office.
Romero has worked with AEW as a liaison with NJPW over the last few years. In that role, he has helped facilitate a number of relationships between several companies. Of course, Romero also appears on-screen in AEW, NJPW, CMLL, MLW and other promotions. He is the reigning MLW World Middleweight Champion.
As we previously reported here on eWn, Kazuchika Okada is expected to sign with All Elite Wrestling. The deal was reportedly verbally agreed upon several weeks ago.
In a recent interview with Tokyo Sports, Bryan Danielson was asked about Okada’s free agency and his future in wrestling.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On Okada’s future: “Of course I want him to come to AEW. Fans all over the world know how great Okada is. Both WWE and AEW are major players, but I hope he comes to AEW.”
On Okada potentially signing with WWE: “If he went to WWE, they might have him start with (third brand) NXT like Shinsuke (Nakamura) to adapt to the American style, but it’s already completed. Okada doesn’t need that. He’s one of the best wrestlers in the world right now, so he should just come to the United States without changing anything.”
