Triple H apparently wants to sign Kazuchika Okada

Triple H watches promotions all over the world and that includes NJPW. He keeps his eyes out on a few top stars from various promotions. Now it seems he is apparently interested in arguably the top star in NJPW, Kazuchika Okada.

According to Pro Sports Extra, Triple H has “made it his personal mission” to sign Kazuchika Okada to a WWE contract once Okada’s NJPW contract expires. According to the report, Triple H is a huge fan of Okada and has shown his matches to others.

Per a source, Triple H has made it his “personal mission” to sign NJPW’s Kazuchika Okada when his current contract is up.

Triple H is said to follow Okada’s work closely and has shown it to others in the company.

Details regarding Okada’s contract are barely known. He made around $2 million in 2016, which was a huge portion of NJPW’s income.

Okada continues to be integral to NJPW’s growth and it will be very difficult for Triple H to convince him to join WWE. However, anything is possible in the world of professional wrestling.

    One word:
    Manager.

  • Michael Justin Arnold

    North American companies that only push english or spanish speakers?

    Honestly, Orton taking even 6 months in Japan would do wonders for his career, and would help a lot of the guys over there, too.

    With as much wrestling as there is today, unless you don’t think anyone else will sign you, no one should stay in any fed for more than seven years. I was really hoping that Orton would go jump to AEW because there’s nothing left to do in WWE. One of the biggest problems with him, I think, is that he’s bored. He’s won every title, wrestled everyone on the roster, spent time on both Raw and Smackdown. When you get bored like that, it’s no wonder that he just looks like he’s going through the motions in most of his matches. I’d even like to see him in New Japan for a year or two.

    I didn’t, but they were more his father’s stars than his.

  • Keith Learmonth

    This is a fair point. Okada should seriously consider doing a few years outside NJPW, because he really has done everything there is to do in NJPW.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Let’s be real: What wrestling company -wouldn’t- want Okada?

  • Steven J

    Don’t forget Mr Fuji and Mr. Saito

    I think WWE should sign Okada. What else is he going to do in New Japan? Become champion again? Wrestle Tanahashi for the 100th time? If I’m Okada, I sign a three year deal with WWE where I can leave if I’m not happy with creative, the same kind of deal the Bucks were offered. Plus that will give Ibushi and Sanada a shot on top in New Japan.

    Seeing how just about every Japanese wrestler in WWE is not happy and can’t go back to Japan very often, and how the Japanese wrestlers in AEW are able to work in Japan when AEW has nothing for them, I’m guessing that they will throw a bunch of money at him to try and get him and waste his talents.

  • Rinn13

    Yes, by all means, please sign more talent that you won’t give a serious push to. Please have all of these great wrestlers on your roster, but continue to push Brock Lesnar as practically your ONLY star.

    Besides that, it is pretty well documented (and backed up by history), that Vince McMahon Jr. has never, ever seriously pushed any Japanese/Asian wrestler. He has had a few of the very best EVER on his roster at times, like Tajiri, like Ultimo Dragon, now Nakamura and Asuka. And besides the token “RR wins” those last two received, for the most part, he has never seriously pushed any.

    So what would be the point in this, beyond another name to add to NXT’s over-stuffed ranks?

  • Broken_MattHardy

    So they can not push him on the main roster because he doesn’t speak English? Oh please, you don’t need every single star in WWE, especially when you have no intention of pushing them.
