Make sure to oil the hinges. The wrestling world has expanded so much in the last few years, as promotions from all over the world can be seen by almost anyone at any time. That is the kind of thing that fans have been waiting on for years, but now we might be seeing something else. One of the most decorated stars in the industry could be on his way to one of the biggest promotions on the other side of the world.

During this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, commentary revealed that the Best Friends have officially joined the Chaos stable in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Commentary also regularly mentioned Kazuchika Okada, the leader of the stable. While not confirmed, this could suggest that Okada could appear in AEW at some point in the future. New Japan wrestlers have appeared in AEW semi-regularly since AEW debuted in 2019. This is speculation at this point and AEW has said nothing about Okada possibly appearing.

Okada is a different kind of star. Check out what he can do in the ring:

Opinion: Yeah I would think this could work. AEW has brought in some names from New Japan, but there is a big difference between the stars who have made appearances and Okada. This would get some more people talking as well as deliver on some amazing matches. Okada is one of the top stars in the world today and I could definitely go with seeing him in an AEW ring.

How would Okada fare in AEW? Who would you like to see him face? Let us know in the comments below.
