Kazuchika Okada is considered by many as the best wrestler that Japan has ever produced. He is a legend in the professional wrestling industry and has worked for several promotions over the past few years. He is mostly known for his work at NJPW.

Kevin Sullivan Questions Okada Alliance with The Young Bucks

Okada recently made his AEW debut and reports suggest that he will make more than $3 million per year while working for the company. However, many critics such as Jim Cornette believe that this is a bad deal.

Even though Okada is extremely good in the ring, he doesn’t know how to speak English. In the world today, a professional wrestler has to speak English to cut promos. Without cutting great promos, a wrestler cannot get over with the fans.

Okada aligned himself with the Young Bucks after he made his AEW debut. Kevin Sullivan recently spoke about Okada and what he believes his future will be in AEW. He spoke about this on the ‘Tuesday with the Taskmaster’ podcast.

"I think he's very, very talented," Sullivan said. "I would say he's up there in the top ten for the talent, right now." Like stated before, many people believe that the language barrier will be an issue. Some people suggested that all of his segments should be with subtitles.

"If his English is poor or non-existent, do you think he'd be better served if he spoke Japanese and they had crawls on the bottom?", asked Sullivan. Sullivan then questions his alliance with The Bucks. He doesn’t know whether the alliance will be good for Okada’s future.

"How do you put him over and yourself over in a two-minute interview?" he asked. "How do you elevate him to your level? And this isn't a bad thing, it's great to have great talent, but they better be looking for a slick-talking manager for him ...

You better protect your investment and you better find somebody that compliments him, and that's only his job to get Okada over, not splitting it. Come on, let's put it under a microscope and turn it in and dial it in." AEW has recently signed a few popular stars, but they didn’t reportedly make a profit last year. Many people criticize AEW’s booking and Tony Khan for not handling the company properly.
