From WON/F4W:
Tony Khan spoke to TSN regarding AEW and continuing to run shows during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also talked about a potential relationship with NJPW, saying: With New Japan, it’s been a little more one-sided where we’ve sent people there and I haven’t really had people from New Japan show up on my TV [programming] yet. I’d like to see more of a two-sided relationship there because I’m honestly one of the easiest people to work with in wrestling. We’ve worked with NWA, we’ve worked with AAA and we’ve sent people to New Japan. I think with Harold [Meij] being gone, I don’t know if it’s going to be easier, but I have a feeling it might be.”
Maybe President Harold was the issue, but even before him, I remember feeling that ROH wasn't getting as much out of the NJPW relationship from a talent standpoint compared to who NJPW was getting (Scurll, Bucks, Cole, all on the regular).

I don't think New Japan is ever gonna see another promotion as an equal to send their big stars for a program. Maybe one match every now and then, but we're not gonna get Tanahashi doing a multi-month program in AEW. Even in CMLL, New Japan just sends people for tournaments or single shows.

If they're smart, the best thing to do is co-branded special events twice a year, one in Japan, one in the US, and start a 'training' talent exchange, let AEW use the LA Dojo or excursion guys, and have AEW send guys like Will Hobbs/Jungle Boy/Guevara-type of up and comers for a tour here and there to get experience working as Young Lions.

Anyone expecting talent exchange of Jericho/Mox for Tana/Okada has to stop living in fantasy world
