NJPW sent out a statement on Thursday, revealing that Kazuchika Okada donated 5 million Yen ($47,010) to the Nippon Foundation’s fund to provide aid to doctors, nurses, and volunteers working on the front lines to fight COVID-19 in Japan. Okada said,
I’m always grateful for NJPW fans’ support, and it’s my hope that I can get back to hearing the cheers of sold-out crowds as soon as possible.
It’s usually me receiving the support and power of the people, but now I feel it’s my turn to lend support to medical staff fighting this disease.
I hope fans continue to stay home and stay healthy, so that we can return to the ring as soon as possible.
