Is there anything contractual/legal stopping Tony Khan from saying "actually, AEW wrestlers can work the NJPW MSG show after all"? Just seems like such a wasted opportunity from both sides to not work together on a show like this. The card writes itself…
Omega vs Okada
Jericho vs Naito
Moxley vs Suzuki
Young Bucks vs Tanahashi and Ibushi
Allin vs Takahashi
PAC vs Ospreay
Cobb vs Ishii
Santana and Ortiz vs Guerillas of Destiny
Jungle Express vs Takagi, Bushi and EVIL
Best Friends and Orange Cassidy vs Yano, Colt and Taguchi
That would sell out MSG without too much of a problem surely.
Legally, there'd be problems, yeah. If New Japan has the broadcast rights, for example, they'd have to figure out who is due royalties and who can appear on the show and a million other things that just aren't gonna happen without a real agreement between the two companies. But damn I'd like to see Moxley v. Suzuki again in MSG.
