OWE Management Addresses Relationship With AEW, Not Official Just Yet

News on All Elite Wrestling’s relationship with Oriental Wrestling Entertainment!

With so much big news coming out of this past Tuesday’s All Elite Wrestling Rally in Jacksonville (watch the rally and check out the recap here), one news item coming out of the company’s first official event that’s been a bit lost was the revelation that AEW will work with China’s Oriental Wrestling Entertainment.

OWE Vice President Michael Nee recently spoke about this working arrangement with the upstart All Elite Wrestling, talking to the South China Morning Post to reveal that it’s not quite official just yet, but an announcement is expected to drop “soon”:

“It’s not an official announcement yet. How to work with each other, what the whole thing will look like, we haven’t had the thorough conversations yet. But they made an announcement that they’re happy to work with us, and we’re really happy about that too. We’ll just try to give them all the resources we have.

CIMA told them everything about OWE and that’s why we’re starting this cooperation. Both parties have the intention to work with each other, and the management know each other very well, so the possibility is big.”

Nee would continue, discussing how the relationship will help out both promotions:

“AEW knows OWE is doing really good in China with the Chinese kung fu and everything, and we have many talented wrestlers. We are based in China, they’re in the US, but working together we can be huge in the future, that’s the intention.

From the very beginning, we’re willing to do global matches like Japan, China, Asia, US and everywhere – we think wrestling is an international sport and entertainment. It should be global. AEW also would like to globalise and work with many countries, so on this point we have something in common. OWE will do everything to support AEW to bring the best wrestling to the world.”

EA’s Take: I don’t have much of a take on this other than it will obviously be good for OWE’s reach here in America. I did find it rather funny that when The Young Bucks announced they would work with OWE at the rally, there were a whole lot of fans there looking like, “Who the Hell is that?”. I got a good chuckle out of it since those fans were expecting something much bigger, obviously.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Bray Wyatt On Raw, All Out Sold Out, WWE Talent News And More! (6/17/19)

News Involving Bray Wyatt On Raw, All Out Sold Out, WWE Talent News And More!

Mike And Maria Re-sign With WWE

Last month in the shuffle, I discussed the news that Mike and Maria Kanellis had expiring contracts with WWE. Many of you discussed their potential jump to AEW on the Chairshot Facebook page. In what many are considering to be a bit of a shock, the couple has reach a long term agreement to re-sign with WWE, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet. No contract terms were disclosed.

Jason’s Take

I am a bit shocked that they re-signed with WWE, and figured a move back to ROH or a jump to AEW seemed logical. While many, including myself, feel that WWE hasn’t done much with the couple, Mike Kanellis did have a substance abuse battle last year in which the company stood by him during his difficult time. Perhaps due to the loyalty the company showed then, and mostly likely a decent wage, were the reasons the couple chose to re-sign. What if Maria re-signed and Mike didn’t?

All Out Sold Out

In what must be considered great news for AEW, the All Out show sold out in less than 15 minuets. According to various outlets, ticket sites for the event have over 70,00 people in online waiting rooms waiting to purchase tickets. The Sears Center in Chicago will hold roughly 12,000 people for this event.

Jason’s Take

It is great that the company has been so successful in ticket sales when WWE is hurting to sell tickets to Stomping Grounds. However, can the company sell out venues week after week for live television ? Not taking any credit away from the company, but many are comparing AEW ticket sales to WWE ticket sales. It is a little tough to be doing that when the company has yet to air a weekly product.

Bray Wyatt On RAW?

One of the most entertaining segments on RAW lately has been the Firefly Funhouse and Bray Wyatt. According to PWInsider,  Wyatt is scheduled to appear on RAW during tonight’s episode.

Jason’s Take

Many agree that Wyatt has been the most entertaining segment of RAW. How they re-debut Wyatt will be key. My hope is is that the company finally does something with Wyatt, as Wyatt is money.

Latest On WWE Talent Exodus

Since the formation of AEW last October, it’s been almost weekly that we hear about someone leaving WWE to jump to AEW. According to Dave Meltzer, many inside WWE are turning down big money deals to potentially jump to AEW.

“They were just in town and everybody wants out. I won’t say everybody because that’s not fair. Roman Reigns doesn’t want out. But the amount of people who have contacted AEW would blow your mind,” Meltzer said. “There are people that are counting down the days. There are guys who have told me, including guys in AEW now, that they cannot believe that they turned the offer down [from WWE] but they did. I know people in WWE right now who are not interested in signing again and they can’t believe they are turning down the money.”

Jason’s Take

Let’s be honest, we are going to hear news of someone wanting to leave WWE daily. AEW isn’t going to, nor are they going to be interested to, sign every ex-WWE star. Many people that I had felt would have left WWE (Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Mike and Maria Kanellis) have re-signed with the company. You could make the argument for many of WWE’s stars jumping to AEW in order to add some life to their careers. Wrestling is one of the most unpredictable forms of entertainment as far as determining what talent will head where.
