Rocky Romero Refutes AEW-NJPW Relationship Reports


It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that AEW President Tony Khan was speaking with NJPW’s Rocky Romero on a regular basis. 

“Khan has been speaking to Rocky Romero regularly of late to try and open doors to New Japan, feeling the odds are better to do something with Harold Meij gone,” wrote Dave Meltzer.


However, during an episode of Talk N Shop with Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows, Romero addressed the relationship with Khan and between the two promotions. 

“I guess Meltzer’s reporting that me and Tony Khan are having calls all the time, like every week, which is not true at all,” Romero said on the show. I’m not talking to Tony weekly, no. I mean, I’ve talked to Tony in the past, of course.

I’ve talked to Tony probably a month ago, maybe more,” Romero continued. “(Meltzer) is not completely lying but he’s making it seem… he’s selling something and trying to make it seem something… He’s trying to get clicks,” Romero later called the reports misleading.
