This would be huge...

Kazuchika Okada is one of the greatest in-ring talents in the world, and the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has indicated that WWE have renewed interest in the talented star.

Meltzer writes:

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 pitch is that he’s now 36 and he’s close with Nakamura and Nakamura has worked years in WWE and it’s far easier on his body. The idea is that WWE is the one thing Okada has never done and he’s done everything he can do in New Japan…”

Meltzer then continued by stating:

“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…”

The possibility of Okada in WWE is an exciting one, and we will keep you posted on how this story plays out.
