Since the company does not want to lose their top star, New Japan has offered Kazuchika Okada a five year deal. That's not normal because the company generally prefers one year contracts. Since Okada has yet to sign the deal, rumors are heating up that he's seriously considering an offer to join Shinsuke Nakamura in WWE. The company wants them because they want to better promote their online video subscription service overseas.

Earlier in the year, rumors spread that Kazuchika Okada was a potential candidate to join the developmental program in WWE. During a recent interview with Rolling Stones, he adamantly states that he has absolutely no desire to join the company. He wants to remain loyal to New Japan, where he is set to be the biggest star in the promotion for the next decade. He will also continue to work with ROH.
