Last updated

The IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Kazuchika Okada recently expressed his desire to square off against some top and huge names of the pro-wrestling business. He name-dropped stars like Triple H, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, and current WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura whom he wants to square off in potential dream matches.

Kazuchika Okada wants to face Triple H

During a recent interview with The Wrestling Observer, Okada named AEW’s Bryan Danielson and CM Punk as the stars he’d like to face down the road. The reigning IWGP World Heavyweight Champion also talked about possible a match with Triple H and Shinsuke Nakamura.

During Nakamura’s time in NJPW, he worked alongside Okada as part of the CHAOS faction. The former King of Strong Style is currently working under and is enjoying his second reign as the Intercontinental Champion:

“Who knows, it might be Bryan Danielson, it might be CM Punk, it might be Triple H, or it might be Shinsuke Nakamura. It might be all of these different situations. Now we’re in this situation we’re in as a planet and as a society it’s more important than ever to have these crazy speculations and wild dreams of things we can do.”

Okada further explained why it’s important to speculate regarding potential dream matches amid the pandemic:

“We can’t possibly say it at the moment, and everything is so up in the air, and sometimes putting these situations out, they might just end as dream matches and everybody’s got a limited number of days left. But it’s because we’re in the situation that we’re in that these dream matches become more important to all of us as fans, to give something to imagine and speculate and look forward to.”

At Wrestle Kingdom 16, The Rainmaker captured the IWGP World Heavyweight Championships by beating Shingo Takagi on Night 1. The following night, Okada beat former CHAOS stablemate Will Ospreay in a fantastic match to retain the title.
