All In is set to take place in Wembley Stadium in London, England in August and Tony Khan has seemed to suggest that there could be a place for top NJPW stars on the card.

Over 65,000 tickets have already been sold for the event giving AEW an unprecedented $8 million gate before a single match has been announced.

Speaking to Reuters, Tony Khan noted that he believes NJPW talent at All In would be a big help to the show and says the partnership between the two companies is looking more crucial than ever due to what else is happening in the pro wrestling world:

“It would be a huge benefit to AEW if there is participation from New Japan Pro Wrestling and some of their top stars in the event [All In].

“In a world where the proposed merger happens, as it is suggested on paper, then I would believe the AEW, New Japan Pro Wrestling partnership is more imperative than ever before.”

It is also noted that New Japan Pro Wrestling President Takami Ohbari noted that his company would consider sending talent over to Wembley Stadium for All In should they get an offer from Tony Khan and AEW.

The two companies will be working together for the sold-out Forbidden Door show on June 25th. Only two matches have been confirmed for that show so far with Kenny Omega set to defend the IWGP US Championship against Will Ospreay while Kazuchika Okada will face Bryan Danielson in a dream match.
