Rocky Romero On What NJPW Knew Of The AEW Continental Classic



On a recent edition of the “In The Weeds” podcast, Romero spoke about what New Japan Pro Wrestling knew about the AEW Continental Classic before the tournament began. He said,

“There was something going around that New Japan didn’t know. I knew the whole time. I told New Japan. Obviously, it’s an unusual concept to have a New Japan Champion put up his titles at the end of this thing. It’s just a bit unusual and I think that’s where some of the people didn’t really fully understand everything.”

“New Japan knew and I think it’s cool. I hope at the end of it, it’s Eddie or Mox [Jon Moxley] or somebody who does wrestle in New Japan. Even Danielson [Bryan Danielson], that they come out on top so hopefully I don’t have to tell my bosses, ‘We messed up and now here is somebody that we can’t book,’ who is in AAA or something.

“I think it will all work out and I’m excited. It’s a cool concept for US fans as an introduction since it’s like the G1. So fans who haven’t watched the G1 will get hooked on the concept and come on over and check out the G1 next year because it’s the best wrestling tournament on earth. You can’t really duplicate it exactly. I do think it’s a cool introduction.”

The AEW Continental Classic will continue on tonight’s edition of AEW Collision with three matches from the Blue League. The current rankings are as follows:

Six points: Jon Moxley, Swerve Strickland.

Three points: Jay White, Rush, Brody King, Claudio Castagnoli.

Zero points: Jay Lethal, Mark Briscoe, Daniel Garcia, Eddie Kingston, Bryan Danielson, Andrade El Idolo.
