Kazuchika Okada is one of the top wrestlers in world. Okada has wrestled all over the world. Okada recently fought Bryan Danielson at AEW Forbidden door. Okada and Bryan weren’t ready to lose, but at the end Bryan Danielson won the match.
Shinsuke Nakamura is getting a huge push lately from WWE. He fought Seth Rollin for WWE World Championship multiple times. Nakamura gave a tough fight for Seth Rollins but eventually Seth retains the title.
Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE has renewed interest in signing Kazuchika Okada.
“We’ve heard some talk of late regarding Kazuchika Okada. Obviously they’ve had interest in him for years. But he’s always been loyal to New Japan. The idea is that WWE is the one thing Okada has never done and he’s done everything he can do in New Japan.
“One person who buzzed us about the renewed interest in Okada said that one of the reasons Nakamura is getting a renewed push is to show Okada that this regime is not going to treat Japanese like the stereotypical children-like role (although Tozawa is still playing that role) because Vince does that with people who don’t speak fluent English, but this is a new regime. Okada is a name always brought up but there’s no indication there’s anything new to this other than there’s been more talk of late.”
