Kazuchika Okada Comments On Chris Jericho Facing Kenny Omega, Reflects On His Run In TNA

NJPW star Kazuchika Okada

IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada recently spoke with Fox Sports Australia to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights:

His run in TNA where he was given a stereotypical gimmick:

“For me, [it was a] good experience. TNA doesn’t care about [having a] good match. But they taught me about character, for a TV show and for the cameras. So it was good for me to become ‘The Rainmaker.’ So, wrestling, being strong, having good matches? I learned that in New Japan. But as a TV character? TNA was good [for me].”

Chris Jericho coming to NJPW to face Kenny Omega and a potential match with Jericho:

“[I found out at] Power Struggle in Osaka. I didn’t know that news. I was in the locker room watching the show same as the fans. I thought, ‘Woah! What the?’ I’m OK. I just want to enjoy, as a fan, Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho.”
