Rocky Romero Recalls Ramifications Of AJ Styles’ NJPW Departure



Rocky Romero recently recounted the ramifications of AJ Styles’ departure from New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).

Appearing recently on The Undisputed Podcast with Bobby Fish, one-half of Roppongi Vice discussed what it meant to NJPW when Styles, Karl Anderson, and Doc Gallows all parted ways with the promotion.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

How Romero found out all three were leaving NJPW: “This was a day before the Tokyo Dome, and I knew what was going to happen because Anderson and Gallows, we’re really tight, and they had to kind of tell me the night before: ‘Hey, we’re going to talk to the boss man and let him know that we’re out of here, and AJ’s going, and we’re going right after him.’ So we’re all trying to make the match, but I remember the Bucks and I were, like, invested in these two [Gallows and Anderson].”

Gedo’s reaction to the news: “We’re trying, like really trying to watch what was going to happen in this whole conversation, when they broke the news to Gedo that they were leaving, that they were on their way out. So we’re kind of watching the whole thing, and that was the day we saw … I literally saw Gedo go ‘Oh shit, you guys are leaving, AJ’s leaving, oh man.’ He’s totally feeling it, then he scans the room, and he just sees Kenny (Omega) and then it’s like, ‘Okay, AJ’s out.’ You could just see it in his face. He just locked eyes on Kenny and he’s like, ‘Kenny’s the guy now.’ It kind of went down all at the same time, it was pretty cool.”
