– It’s said that WWE is expected to go aggressively after talents in Japan, Mexico and the UK over the next few months. WWE is very interested in Kazuchika Okada. Key people in WWE figured out that Okada is tall so that’s why there is interest in him.
Keep in mind that NJPW offered Okada a five-year contract, but it’s unknown whether he signed it or not. Okada has said before that he was loyal to New Japan and he was a guest at last year’s SummerSlam. So far, he has not shown interest in signing with WWE.
WWE is also interested in a top star from AAA and Lucha Underground that has never worked for a mainstream U.S. promotion before. This person is unhappy with the Lucha Underground creative.
