Where will Okada end up?

Current updates suggest that Kazhucika Okada has made up his mind to move back to the United States. He has filled the trademark for his ring name “Kazuchika Okada” for branding and promotional purposes. We said, moving back to the States because Okada had been a part of TNA wrestling for a while. And the connections that he made at TNA might be the reason he would choose AEW. If the words are to be trusted, Okada shares a very special bond with the elites of AEW, The Young Bucks. The word around the town is that when Okada was in TNA during 2010 and 2011, the Bucks took him under their wing.
