Thread: WWE-Okada

  1. #1

    WWE-Okada

    - F4Wonline.com reports that WWE officials are interested in signing New Japan Pro Wrestling star Kazuchika Okada. Okada previously competed in TNA and worked as Samoa Joe's sidekick. Okada lost a NJPW title match a few days ago and that could be a sign he's headed to WWE.
    What do you all think of this development? Should WWE sign him, or should Okada stay with New Japan?

    I'm trying to be number one, why would I settle?

    Have to be honest.. I have no idea when it comes to wrestlers in Japan, but judging by how much Tatsu is getting used I would advise he stayed where he was in Japan, unless they were thinking of teaming him with Yoshi? I'm guessing that could work.

    If they're actually going to do something with him, then great.

    Okada is a fantastic wrestler and talent who's transformation since leaving TNA has been magnificent. From Samoa Joe's lackey to NJPW champion. TNA really did miss the boat there.

    I don't think it's fair to compare anyone who signs for WWE these days to someone like Yoshi Tatsu, since Tatsu was signed at a time when WWE were operating under a different policy. WWE don't sign people these days unless there's a plan in place for them, much like they don't call people up from NXT unless there's a plan in place for them.
    Another point is that Okada would be a much higher profile guy than Tasu or any other Japanese talent that WWE have signed for a long time.

    I think he'd be a great asset to WWE if signed.

    That will be very insightful! He is our resident Japanese wrestler expert!

    But for Okada, looking at the track record of Japanese stars that have signed with WWE i think he will be better off in Japan.

    Stay in New Japan. Don't want him ending up like Yoshi Tatsu.
