Was Okada IWGP champion so long because he refused to drop the title?

Because I thought it was because Gedo wanted him to break the single reign defense record. Have seen this on Twitter a couple times the last few days, did a report come out that Okada was only champ so long because he refused to drop the title?

News to me.

I thought it was because Gedo wanted to turn him into the next Inoki.

“Oh, Eeyore, you are wet!” said Piglet, feeling him.
Eeyore shook himself, and asked somebody to explain to Piglet what happened when you had been inside a river for quite a long time.”

I was asking if their was a report? Not saying there was one. I just found it strange that I've seen this more then once on Twitter in the last 3 days. I thought maybe a report had come out that I had missed saying Okada had refused to drop the title, because that's quite the coincidence for different people to say the same thing in a few day stretch.

Very true, I just found it odd different people stating the same thing in a short span of time. Just made me wonder if a report had come out that I missed.

Okada comes across as a really cool and chill guy and someone who wants to work together to make NJPW as good as it can be so I doubt it plus the long title reign suited his character.
