Kazuchika Okada is busy preparing for his grudge match against Will Ospreay at Night 1 of NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 15.
The Rainmaker spoke to Sports Illustrated to promote the event. During the discussion, Okada proposed a wrestling super-show involving all the top promotions across the globe.
“Times are tough right now, but I hope what we do will bring joy to everyone all over the world, and give them enough strength and positivity to do their best the next day,” Okada said.
“When the world calms down, I would like to give back with other wrestling companies to all wrestling fans in the world who still support us even in this current situation. New Japan, WWE, AEW, CMLL, AAA all together. Sounds pretty cool, don’t you think?”
Okada added,”I want to show how powerful professional wrestling is. I want to cheer everyone up with that power.”
