In a recent interview with “WrestlePurists,” Rocky Romero discussed the Young Lions system at NJPW, which sees the promotion sending younger talent to other wrestling companies to acquire experience and exposure.
Romero expressed his hopes to see the Young Lions system in AEW in the future.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On his thoughts about involving AEW with the Young Lions: “I think that would be cool. What’s cool about AEW’s setup is — yeah, sending a Young Lion to the Ring of Honor show and starting them there. Building them up [to] Rampage, Collision, Dynamite. That could be cool and kind of give them that experience.”
On notable names among NJPW’s younger talents: “[Kosei] Fujita is a great standout, I mean, honestly, there’s so many. [Ryohei] Oiwa is a great standout. I’m excited for this next batch of Young Lions to actually go out into the world and kind of see what happens because, obviously, the ones that just came back; Yuya [Uemura], Ren Narita, Shota [Umino], Shota vs. [Will] Ospreay was insane the other night. I think that New Japan’s next generation is firing on all cylinders. I’m not even worried about the future at all. I think that we’ve really been blessed with a great batch of young guys.”
