The shows will be delivered to New Japan World customers at no extra charge and that a Japanese live version of the television content is also being planned. The company did not announce a specific date for the content to go live.

AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling have had a working relationship together from a talent sharing perspective. Jon Moxley has regularly worked New Japan shows as the IWGP United States Champion and New Japan stars like Kenta and Jay White have had matches on Dynamite and Rampage.

This deal is the first official business venture that both companies have come together on. Many top AEW talents have been top acts in New Japan. Kenny Omega is a former AEW World Champion and IWGP Heavyweight Champion, The Young Bucks are former IWGP Tag Team Champions, and Lance Archer is a former IWGP United States Champion. Chris Jericho also spent time working in New Japan, having matches with Kenny Omega, Tetsuya Naito, and Kazuchika Okada.

AEW President, Tony Khan, took to Twitter and reacted to the news saying, “we did it.”

AEW is set for big shows in the coming weeks. On this week’s AEW Dynamite, it was revealed that Adam Page would defend his World Championship against Adam Cole in a Texas Deathmatch. In addition, Thunder Rosa was given her first title defense and will square off against Nyla Rose with the title on the line at Battle of the Belts 2 on Saturday April 16.
