Former WWE Star Compares Randy Orton To Kazuchika Okada

While fans are often split in their opinions of Randy Orton’s wrestling abilities, there’s no doubt that Orton is a WWE legend and will go down as one of the biggest stars in wrestling history.

Someone else who will go down in wrestling history is former NJPW Champion Kazuchika Okada, and former WWE star Killian Dain thinks the similarities between Orton and Okada don’t stop there.

Speaking to Riju Dagsputa, Dain spoke about who he’d like to wrestling in NJPW, which interestingly led to him discuss Orton. He said:

“That’s a question! Well, I mean, so I’ve been a fan of Shingo for such a long time. I followed him in Dragon Gate, so watching how he has evolved as a wrestler has been incredible. So he would be an interesting one, obviously. Okada is one I never got a chance to wrestle.

“Okada is; he is just such a perfect wrestler. He is like what Randy Orton is to American wrestling; Okada is to Japanese wrestling; they are just so good at everything. Then also the likes of Kenny Omega and stuff like that, a wonderful person to wrestle with. But if you put a gun to my head and tell who I’d love to wrestle the most, it would be Tomohiro Ishii. I wrestled him in 2015, and it was one of the best experiences of my career, and I’d definitely love to do it again at the drop of a hat.”

Dain remains under a non-compete clause until the end of September 2021, so we’ll have to see where he shows up once he’s able to wrestle again.
