IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada recently spoke with Strait Times about his career and more. Here are the highlights.
On his “Rainmaker” moniker: “I heard of the word ‘rainmaker’. It means one particular star who could make a company or project rich and successful. Someone that makes it rain with money. I thought it was a really good concept so I took over that idea to become the rainmaker.”
On why he donates money to charity after every win: “My uncle suffered from cancer so I decided to start this fund to give back to society.”
On his wish for NJPW wrestlers: “I hope these wrestlers become more famous so that they can spread the word about NJPW.”
