New Beginning: Okada vs. Fale

Okada Continues his Battle with Bullet Club Against Bad Luck Fale!

Last Friday a new chapter began in New Japan Pro Wrestling. “The Cut Throat Era” as dubbed by the newly crowned IWGP Heavyweight champion, “Switchblade” Jay White. His decisive victory over Hiroshi Tanahashi signified Bullet Club’s re-emergence as the supreme faction in the world of professional wrestling. With the top prize now with the rebel group, the focus now shifts to dismantling all opposition.

Kazuchika Okada is a former 4x IWGP Heavyweight Champion. He also holds the record for the longest reign of the title in company history. When his manager, Gedo, betrayed him to align himself with Jay White, Okada was lost. With his trust broken, White defeated him at Wrestle Kingdom 13 and at that moment the Rain Maker needed to do some soul searching and get back to the top before everything that he worked hard to accomplish becomes dust in the wind.

With his eyes set on climbing back up the ranks and reclaiming the heavyweight title, Okada must first go through the enforcer of the Bullet Club. The Rogue General, Bad Luck Fale. Okada does not have an easy road ahead. In the six previous times the two have collided, the Rain Maker has won three and Bad Luck Fale has won three. Who will come up on top in their seventh bout together?
