Yesterday, Dave Meltzer shared a bombshell report in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter when he confirmed that WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling have been in talks about a possible partnership.
"In what could end up being among the biggest wrestling stories of the year, or a non-story, depending on the end result, Nick Khan has been in talks with New Japan Pro Wrestling about WWE being the exclusive American partner with the promotion," he noted, a deal that would change the wrestling business as we know it (well, providing WWE doesn't drop the ball).
Top WWE Superstars could head to Japan for huge matches, while we could see huge names from NJPW step into a WWE ring as well. However, could Daniel Bryan jump between both companies?
According to PW Insider, the Leader of the Yes Movement could be a key component in these talks as the Japanese company is looking for a deal where Bryan could split his time between both. These are said to be the "main crux" of the talks, and the former WWE Champion has made no secret of the act he wants to compete outside WWE moving forward (something they don't usually allow).
It's early days for this story, and this certainly isn't the first time we've heard about a possible WWE/NJPW deal.
How would you feel about Bryan jumping between both companies?
