Kazuchika Okada wrestled his final singles match for New
Japan Pro-Wresling and could not contain his emotions at The
New Beginning in Osaka.
Okada took on Hiroshi Tanahashi in this match and the former
IWGP Heavyweight champion already had tears in his eyes
during his entrance as fans erupted in “Okada” chants. After
he successfully won the match via his Rainmaker, the two
embraced in the ring.
Eventually, Okada was left alone and he bowed down to the
crowd before falling to his knees crying over the NJPW logo.
The EDION Arena then gave Okada his final goodbye before he
went to the back.
Okada is said to be leaning towards AEW although there is
interest from WWE as well. AEW has offered the most money in
this particular case although Okada has stated in the past
about his wish to wrestle at WrestleMania.
