Kazuchika Okada Surprised Shinsuke Nakamura Joined WWE, Knocks Emotion In U.S. Wrestling

WWE
Sports Illustrated recently spoke with former TNA star Kazuchika Okada. One topic of discussion was Shinsuke Nakamura signing with WWE and reporting to NXT.

“I was very surprised he left for WWE,” said Okada. “I was so surprised, but it’s no problem. That’s what he wanted–he wanted to go. There is more emotion in a match in New Japan. The matches here in the U.S. are so fast that sometime they lack emotion. It is move, move, move. When I lost last year’s Tokyo Dome [at Wrestle Kingdom 9], I almost cried. There is that much emotion, and that is a big difference in style.”

Okada’s biggest fame in TNA was working with Samoa Joe. TNA had Okada playing a role similar to Kato from The Green Hornet.
