I've never heard or read anyone praising Gallows for his ring work, plenty of reports about him being a good guy to have back in the locker room but nothing really praising his actual work.

Liger is another one of those cases where he's a legend, and is at a stage of his career where he's an attraction but also an enhancement talent. He also helps train the young lions and is heavily involved in the dojo, I'm sure they trust him to do whatever he wants, wherever he wants and that's why they are fine with having him on that contract in the first place. If he wants to go to NXT and wrestle jobber to the stars Tyler Breeze, sure, it's Liger. If he wants to go to PWG and pretend to stick his thumb up Ciampa's butt, sure, it's Liger.

Ibushi is also allowed to do whatever he wants, and that is mainly because he's not one of their boys. They forgave him pretty quickly for doing the Cruiserweight Classic instead of the G1. Neither guy really "had permission" though, because they don't require it, New Japan don't tend to lock guys down and that's what allowed Nakamura to jump ship instead of dropping the IC title to Omega. I don't think that move did much good for a potential relationship since loyalty and honour is a big deal in Japanese culture. For an example of this just look at Shibata and how he had to re-earn everyone's respect after he quit to do MMA. Look how long they kept Yoshi Tatsu around even though he was fucking terrible at everything.

The only way that sort of deal would work like that is if WWE approached NJPW as an equal, which seems improbable as it wouldn't really benefit WWE in any meaningful (ie. monetary) way.
