Why is NJPW So Upset At AEW?
I understand that Kenny Omega and THE ELITE left, but I don't understand why that is something to get so worked up over?
Kenny Omega was with NJPW for a long time, completed all of his contractual obligations, and performed to the best of his abilities. His contract expired, and he opted to leave, that is life, a better option came to the table, and he went with that. It's not like NJPW was completely blindsided by the departure, they know when contracts are ending.
I understand that Kenny said that he would expand NJPW to the west, and to an extent, he definitely did, but his life priorities had changed, and it was time to move on, is that so difficult to understand?
In the case of The Young Bucks, it's even more of a headscratcher, since it's not like the tag division was an integral component to NJPW, and again, they fulfilled their obligations.
Cody was a freelancer and he was never going to be steady.
I'm just finding it hard to understand why NJPW is so upset with all of them leaving, they all gave everything to NJPW while they were there, and performed at an incredibly high level, that's all you can really ask for.
Am I missing something, is there more to the story that I don't understand?
The thought of a working relationship between the two is salivating, but based on the word going around, it seems highly unlikely for the foreseeable future.
