Prior to tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Rocky Romero invited Orange Cassidy and Best Friends (Chuck Taylor, Trent, Kris Statlander and Wheeler Yuta) to join CHAOS, and the group accepted.

Romero told “Freshly Squeezed” and his pals that “The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada himself wants all of them to join his stable.
Though Taylor protested by pointing out that Yuta is a borderline member of Best Friends, Romero emphasized that he was still welcome to join. Taylor subsequently agreed to the invitation, so Best Friends have officially joined forces with CHAOS, a stable that has been featured in NJPW since 2009. The group currently includes Okada, Romero, Mikey Nicholls, Robbie Eagles, Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano, Yoh, and YOSHI-HASHI.
Reacting to the news on Twitter, AEW President Tony Khan said that he believes that this is the beginning of a “beautiful friendship.”
Okada has spoken. @orangecassidy + the Best Friends are in CHAOS. Rocky, think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Thank you to you fans who support pro wrestling! See you all TONIGHT for some great wrestling on #AEWDynamite LIVE on TNT @ 8pm ET/7pm CT/6pm MT/5pm PT!

Shortly after the announcement that Best Friends joined CHAOS, Romero took to the ring on AEW Dynamite, where he lost a tough match to Bryan Danielson when he tapped out to the Tequilla Sunrise.
