Triple H says the door is open for cross-promotion with New Japan Pro Wrestling
Triple H seems open to a NJPW working relationship. During the interview with SunSport, he was asked if he was open to working with New Japan. Triple H said, “We are open to doing things with anybody or anything.”
He continued, “We have an alliance with PROGRESS in the UK, a situation with ICW in Scotland, two very well run and respected promotions that do good business – but more importantly they are cultivating talent. They are not just exploiting talent and grabbing guys to do a show with them, they are teaching talent and trying to make them better, which is what it is all about for me.”
