WWE is looking to take things to a new level and are currently in talks with New Japan Pro Wrestling regarding a potential partnership that would have a monumental impact on the professional wrestling industry, according to sources.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE President Nick Khan has been negotiating a partnership with NJPW that would see WWE become the promotion’s exclusive partner in the United States.

“In what could end up being among the biggest wrestling stories of the year, or a non-story, depending on the end result, Nick Khan has been in talks with New Japan Pro Wrestling about WWE being the exclusive American partner with the promotion,” according to Dave Meltzer. “There are no indications where talks are at past they date back to late March or early April. But it would include WWE sending talent and WWE top stars being allowed to work in New Japan if talks go anywhere”.

A deal between NJPW and WWE would be a major blow to AEW, who has made a habit of working with other promotions, such as Impact Wrestling and NJPW, to positive reviews from fans.
