Following an announcement that was made in Japan earlier in the day, Impact Wrestling announced on its website on Tuesday night that the company had entered an official working relationship with Pro Wrestling NOAH.
“We look forward to making a formal announcement soon in Tokyo and seeing IMPACT Stars compete at NOAH’s Yokohama event on March 12,” Impact Wrestling wrote when announcing the agreement. “We are thrilled to build this relationship even further with more details to come.”
Some of those details will likely be revealed when that formal announcement is made, but it appears that the promotions will at least be sharing talent going forward.
Both promotions have undergone ownership changes in recent months. In a move that became expected once Billy Corgan was unsuccessful in his attempts to gain control of Impact Wrestling, Anthem Sports & Entertainment announced at the beginning of 2017 that they had acquired a majority interest in the company.
It was also announced last November that NOAH had been sold to Japanese IT company Estbee, which later changed its name to NOAH Global Entertainment.
