Okada is in a difficult spot. He brings it in the ring and has really been a great champion. He has held the belt for a long time and won his feud with tanahashi. But he's not tanahashi. Thus the crowd hasn't embraced him as the top guy. I think they will take the title off him at dontaku and give it to styles. That leads to all kind of fresh main events, and if aj can put on great matches then why not keep him there. I predict that Okada loses the belt but gets his win back at g-1 or they have okada dominate the match going to a draw. They have okada v nakamura working now and it probably will be a super long build so when it happens it will be a dome main event.
Looking ahead for okada they have the styles feud, shinsky, fale is being elevated and wouldn't shock me to see shibata and Ishii get in with him as well. Next few years are going to be fun.
Total okada mark
