Bryan Danielson Confirms Talks Between WWE & NJPW Earlier This Year


During a recent appearance on the “In the Kliq” podcast, AEW Superstar Bryan Danielson confirmed the reports from earlier this year that WWE and NJPW were in talks about a working relationship. He said,

“I don’t know how far along the talks went and I don’t know even if I was the start of them, for sure, but one of the things when I was talking to them when WWE was trying to re-sign me was, I said, ‘I want to be able to work in Japan.’ They were trying to come up with an agreement to where I would be able to go and do that. It was definitely something that was talked about. I don’t know where it went or anything, all I know is now it seems like AEW has a really great relationship with New Japan. So, I feel like it couldn’t have gone that well.”
