Kazuchika Okada is set to leave the NJPW later this month after several successful years in the promotion. His destination isn’t known but now it appears Pro Wrestling Tees was told to remove his merchandise after his NJPW exit.

As reported earlier, Kazuchika Okada is set to become free agent at the end of January. The promotion then officially confirmed that Okada will be parting ways with the company after this month.

It was also reported that WWE was interested in Kazuchika Okada and there is chance WWE will end up snatching him up once he becomes a free agent if AEW doesn’t give him a big enough offer. In case you didn’t know, AEW also made a better first offer to Kazuchika Okada.

Okada didn’t appear at the Royal Rumble but that didn’t stop fans from speculating his WWE debut in the future. Interestingly enough, Pro Wrestling Tees’ founder Ryan Barkan took to Facebook and revealed that he was told to remove all merchandise related to Kazuchika Okada from the store.


”I was just told to remove all Okada merchandise. So if there was ever something you wanted you have about 12 hours.”

Okada’s likely landing spot will also revealed. Nonetheless, Okada’s merchandise being removed from Pro Wrestling Tees has convinced fans he will be making his way to WWE. However, it is to be noted that this is likely to deal with Okada’s NJPW contract expiring and nothing more than that. We’ll have to see what will become of The Rainmaker in the end.
