Fans love a fighting champion. Whether be in the world of boxing, MMA, or right here on AXS TV with New Japan Pro Wrestling; A fighting champion gives more importance to the title he or she possesses. The argument is also often said that the person makes the title, the title doesn’t make the person. Kazuchika Okada has made the IWGP Heavyweight Championship the richest prize in pro-wrestling.
Some champions limit the amount of title opportunities a challenger may have. SANADA has challenged for the title a number of times already in this latest reign of Okada which speaks volumes of the type of champion he is. With each and every title defense, SANADA does inch a little bit closer to becoming champion. Impressively, he spoiled the Rainmaker’s clean sweep in this year’s G1 and that isn’t something Okada will forget.
They fight it out one more time on Saturday night. Is this the end of their incredible championship series of matchups? Will the Cold Skull finally climb the mountain top and tower over the landscape of New Japan with the gold? It all goes does Saturday, Nov. 2 9/8c and it’s all part of the Saturday Slam!
