Well deserved, what an insane title reign he has had.

Good matches with Shibata, Suzuki, great matches in the G1.

I mean, he has to, it would be a crime if someone not named Okada or Omega won that, despite PWI being WWE biased af and it is mostly based on kayfabe accomplishments

Okada has been on an amazing run. His title reign has been extraordinary. Truly exceptional run as the IWGP Champion.

The funny thing is, if we are talking Champions, on the other side, while this guy is making it rain, what did he compete against besides his compatriate in AJPW's Kento Miyahara? Maybe Styles, but his run was hurt by being booked with Elsworth.

Okada is not just the very best but the best by a million miles and is only rivaled by guys in his own company such as Naito, Omega and Tanahashi.

Can't disagree with this. He's the natural choice.

Hiroshi Tanahashi/Kazuchika Okada/Minoru Suzuki/Daniel Bryan/Asuka

Samoa Joe/Tetsuya Naito/Tomohiro Ishii/Meiko Satomura/Jay White

Re: Kazuchika Okada will be #1 in the PWI 500 this year

I mean PWI is far from a shoot nowadays but

Is this a surprise tho? There is NOBODY in WWE or any other promotion quite on his level from a match perspective to a character perspective and just everything about him. The only other people I can think of possibly being on his level are Omega, Tanahashi, and Naito, all in NJPW.










KEEP MAKING IT RAIN, GOATKADA!
