With the working relationship with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), Lance Archer explained to WrestleTalk that he’d relish the opportunity to return to the Japanese promotion while representing AEW.
Lance Archer worked for NJPW for several years before joining AEW last year, even winning the IWGP United States Championship. Archer told WrestleTalk he’d love to return and fight for the IWGP World Heavyweight title this time, saying:
“I’ve been lucky enough when I was over there to work with just about everybody they have, obviously I’d love if that opportunity came about as far as representing AEW. To go back and fight for the IWGP Heavyweight Title, I think that’d be really cool. I’m a crossover person, as everybody can see I’m wearing my Suzuki-Gun shirt right now, and Minoru Suzuki is someone that I think many times people, especially once that ‘Forbidden Door’ was opened, that they’d like to see show up in AEW.
Lance Archer then spoke about his admiration for the fact that AEW and Tony Khan are willing to work with other promotions across the world like IMPACT Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
“I think that’s one of the really cool aspects of what’s going on with AEW right now, is our willingness to work with New Japan, our willingness to work with IMPACT Wrestling, and who knows who else that might show up from wherever else in the industry, because I think that’s what makes it fun for the fanbase, and I think that’s what’s helping wrestling survive in this crazy world, is those fun aspects that kind of didn’t really exist before and now are there.”
