Would be neat at some point in the future but as it stands I don't have any interest in it beyond one or two guys I'd like to see.

GAME PLANS? We don't need no stinking game plans.



The portal between AEW and any overseas promotion is pretty firmly shut for the short term at least

I will never shake your hand.

Ever.


I wouldn't mind seeing Hangman do another G1, but otherwise I have no interest in AEW interacting with my King of Sports

It's short for Maxwell Jacob Friedman Fans, come on guys, use your noggins.

I don't think you guys have to worry about AEW interacting with NJPW any time soon.

It wouldn't be the craziest idea for New Japan to loan out Jay White and KENTA to someone running shows in the US unless they are gonna continue running those LA dojo shows and those jerks are gonna show up there

Given the state of the US I suspect management is probably happy to tell them to please stay home.

Jay in AEW would be tricky as New Japan probably would want to have him look strong and not eat any pins and AEW probably doesn't want to have it's full timers lose to outsiders either. And having Jay come in for some multi mans with Chase eating a pin also really doesn't do much.

Not to mention I can see them trying to get Jay to fly in and Stay for the G1/Wrestle Kingdom by way of New Zeland

Isn't Jay in NZ right now?

Anyway, it'll never happen, but, purely as a thought exercise, if Jay went to AEW, he would beat up some lower card guys and eventually pick a fight with Moxley, because Moxley can beat him in America and give him his win back in Japan. Or maybe Jay beats Moxley for the IWGP US Title and then Moxley has to put up the AEW World Championship to get it back.

Cross promotional matches like this where nobody wants their top guys to lose are best done with Main Event Heel vs Midcard/Upper Midcard Babyface, where the face can lose and it won't hurt him too much because the other guy is still above his level and he can look like a valiant badass for almost winning. Though that kind of hinges on said babyface not already being the subject of that story in his home promotion all the time first.

Yeah, you would do like, Jay vs. Orange Cassidy and do it in Japan or something. If you were doing it in America, you would do like. Jericho vs. *throws dart at board* Master Wato!?

This is basically what the NWA champ would do when touring around right?

Pretty much. Some formulas are evergreen, assuming you do it right/don't overdo it.

ROH started building to doing the Jay White/Marty Scurll match again but hopefully that doesn't happen and they put Jay against someone who isn't a sex offender.

Based off his tweeting I don't think KENTA has any intention of doing anything as dumb as wrestling in the US right now.
