Former NJPW star is officially All Elite

The “Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada is officially All Elite.

Okada appeared on Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite after Eddie Kingston had come out and confronted The Young Bucks.

At first, Okada acted like he was going to assist Kingston, but instead dropped Kingston with the rainmaker. It was then The Young Bucks officially announced Okada joined The Elite, as the Bucks and Okada all shook hands.

Before Okada came out, the Young Bucks said due to Hangman Adam Page assaulting referees during the World Title Three-Way Match at Revolution this past Sunday, he was suspended from The Elite without pay. The Bucks also said Kenny Omega was fired from The Elite for missing scheduled appearances.

Omega has been out of action due to diverticulitis.
