NJPW's Kazuchika Okada Wants To Face Triple H
Rainmaker vs. King of Kings?
For all the rumours in 2021 of a working relationship between WWE and NJPW potentially being in the works, nothing came of it. But that hasn’t put off IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada.
During an appearance on Wrestling Observer Radio, ‘The Rainmaker’ was reflecting on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the wrestling world, and spoke of the importance in trying to make dream matches a reality:
“So, I mean, really, we can't possibly say it at the moment and everything is so up in the air and sometimes putting these situations out they might just end as dream matches and everybody's got a limited number of days left. But it's because we're in the situation that we're in that these dream matches become more important to all of us as fans, to give something to imagine and speculate and look forward to. So, who knows, it might be Bryan Danielson, it might be CM Punk, it might be Triple H, or it might be Shinsuke Nakamura. It might be all of these different situations. Now we're in this situation we're in as a planet and as a society it's more important than ever to have these crazy speculations and wild dreams of things we can do,” said Okada.
