This news was presented to Shawn Michaels and he seemed elated by the idea. Michaels also noted that he believed Okada could be a great fit in WWE if he ever decided to join the company.

‘I’m so incredibly appreciative of that,’ Michaels said ‘I’ve always admired the style in Japan, and here’s a guy that admires my style. Someone once asked me how Okada would adjust if he were ever in the WWE, and I know the answer to that’”he’d adjust fantastically, because he’s a fantastic talent.”

” It’s like me. People would say, ’˜Well, you only wrestled in the WWE,’ but I could have wrestled anywhere. When a guy is talented, he’s talented. So I’m thankful that Okada, this unbelievably talented young man, gained one or two things from my match.’
