NJPW President Reacts To Kazuchika Okada’s Departure, Mustafa Ali vs. Amazing Red Set



As we reported on Thursday here on eWn, Kazuchika Okada will be departing New Japan Pro Wrestling when his contract expires at the end of this month. He will still work three matches in February to finish up his commitments.

During a recent interview with Tokyo Sports, NJPW President Hiroshi Tanahashi commented on Kazuchika Okada’s departure. He said,

“I can only express my gratitude in the sense that I have contributed to New Japan for the past 12 years. Speaking personally, I would have liked to have seen more matches with the new generation (Shota Umino, Ren Narita, Yota Tsuji, and Yuya Uemura).”

He continued, “However, if I feel for Okada, I know that he has done enough in New Japan. I hope he will spread his wings to the world. If he is going overseas with what he has achieved at the top in New Japan, I hope that he will show (them) Kazuchika Okada. It’s the same feeling I had with Nakamura. I am very proud of him. I think things will get interesting from now on. We have an abundance of talent right now, and there are a lot of young fighters in the dojo. When the rain stops, there will be a rainbow. Who will light up the future of New Japan when the rain of money stops falling?”
