Wrestlingobserver.com reports that Bushiroad, which is the company that owns New Japan Pro Wrestling, was the sponsor for today and tomorrow’s WWE house shows at Sumo Hall in Tokyo, even though they are competitors running the same building.

    I highly doubt NJPW sees the WWE (somebody who runs what 6 shows in Japan a year at the most) as a competitor. Plus haven’t WWE & NJPW worked together in the past many times? Heck I’d be willing to suggest that when the WWE does these tours of Japan that they may even be using a NJPW owned Ring so they don’t have to ship one of theirs over there.

    I hope TNA and NJPW are still partnered :P

    Wrestling hasn’t been competition in going over a year. Every wrestling company knows at this point wrestling suffers from not being mainstream in most of the world now. We are better off when company’s help one another so they can all survive.

    More wrestling companies mean more talented men and women get to be employed and live their dream of entertaining us the fans. We just have to accept to have a tiered wrestling system and just realize sometimes a superstar will move up or down to another fed for a change.

    Competition doesn’t breed better wrestling, it only gives them a little boost that in the end only puts more people out of work and eats the industry apart like a parasite.

    this is so not a story. Yukes owns NJPW, they make WWE games. So in theory WWE and NJPW have been working together since 05ish

  5. Michael says:

    Yukes doesn’t own NJPW. Yukes sold NJPW to Bushiroad.
    Bushiroad has sponsored WWE Japan events in the past, and the owner is a WWE fan. Rumor is the owner of Bushiroad attended this years WM.

    @Hipnosis – I don’t think they are, as TNA started a relationship with NOAH, as TNA’s Samoa Joe and Magnus are NOAH’s GHC Tag Team Champions now.
