My second encounter with “The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada 💸💰 Had a nice short conversation with him. For some reason, I wasn’t nervous in talking to him. I thought that was weird, nevertheless he’s a super cool dude.
Third time is the charm 🤗 I actually left my Okada Dollar in Chicago for him to sign it and PWTees is going to ship it to me. I was so in a rush yesterday that I couldn’t stay for the signing

CMLL just released this video of Kazuchika Okada after he had arrived in Mexico. Labelled by the press as the best fighter in the world today, the Japanese Okada - one of NJPW's top representatives - is already in the Aztec country and declared to be ready for battle at Arena Mexico tomorrow. Okada will be teaming up with Último Guerrero & Negro Casas at the event to take on the team of Diamante Azul, El Valiente & Místico.
On CMLL's Informa, OKUMURA announced that NJPW's Kazuchika Okada will be wrestling on next Friday's (8/17) CMLL show. They did not announce the match for Okada. OKUMURA also mentioned that there will be more surprises announced at a later date. CMLL is likely running the Gran Prix Mexico versus the World match at some point this year, and those other announcements could be for it. Okada wrestled in Mexico from 2004 through 2007 as an independent wrestler for Ultimo Dragon's Toryumon Mexico and not in big promotions. He’s only wrestled in Arena Mexico as part of past DragonMania shows. This will be his first appearance for CMLL. It’s the usual Marca/Facebook show, and there’s a very certain chance this will eventually air on NJPWWorld as well.
