The next confirmed NJPW Superstar is:


“Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada is returning to Ring of Honor!! Okada’s rise from a blue chip prospect to the phenom he is today was meteoric. His debut in Ring of Honor at last years Global Wars was met with awe as finally the ROH faithful got the chance to see what Japan had been raving about.

His accolades in New Japan speak for themselves. Aside from being a former IWGP Heavyweight Champion two time champion, Okada is also a former winner of both the G1 Climax Tournament and the New Japan Cup. The most impressive of his New Japan successes may be his second reign as IWGP Heavyweight Champion which lasted an amazing 391 days!

Okada’s brash personality as “Rainmaker” is sure to clash with the stars on the ROH roster just as it does with New Japan wrestlers . His arsenal of moves include a devastating lariat aptly titled “The Rainmaker” and a submission named “Red Ink.”  That makes him a tough opponent for anyone in ROH Ring of Honor.  Stay tuned to for announcements on whom the New Japan talent will be competing against.

Very few tickets to these historic events remain for these events so get your tickets now! Don’t miss these epic once in a lifetime shows.
