It has been many years since Impact Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling have had a working relationship. Tama Tonga wants that to change.
Tama spoke with Sportskeeda about it and said how he thinks it would be great to share their platforms. Here is the quote:
“I think it would be great! I think it would be great to get… Let’s bring our product out here to the States. It would be great to have a platform to share that.
We used to be on AXS, we used to have a regular thing here, but I think with the situation, the world situation, and things kind of taking a turn, I think it would be a good relationship for both. Having the Good Brothers there, someone we trust that worked with us before, that understands New Japan, the ins and outs, could really facilitate things like these and I think it would be great altogether. I would love that.”
New Japan Pro Wrestling have famously held a grudge against Impact Wrestling over their handling of Kazuchika Okada. The young prodigy was sent to TNA to learn in 2010 but was badly misused. This led to the partnership between the two promotions disintegrating. Although no one from the TNA regime currently works for Impact, New Japan is still sour over their prior dealings.
Fans have been clamoring for a partnership between New Japan Pro Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling, however, there has been no progress made on that front.
