Kazuchika Okada On Potential Rematch Against Bryan Danielson: I Don't Want To Get There Easily

Kazuchika Okada discusses a potential rematch with Bryan Danielson.

After being pitched in many dream matches over the years, the two competitors finally squared off in a singles bout at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view back in June. Many fans are already wondering when the next match between Okada and Danielson will take place, as the first bout was highly praised by a vast majority of the wrestling community.

In a new interview with Tokyo Sports, Okada recalled the air being taken out of the arena when Danielson came out to 'Final Countdown', noting that he felt like he truly experienced American wrestling.

"I was the last to enter the ring, but I felt like AEW had taken me over. Brian came out of nowhere for the 'Final Countdown,' and I thought he took the air with him. I felt that I had experienced American wrestling this time."

Okada went on to talk about possibly having a rematch with 'The American Dragon' and how he doesn't want to rush into it.

"I don't think it's right for me to play the card that everyone was excited about so much, and to play it again. I don't want to get there easily. But if there is a time to return the favor, I'd like to win even if I have to break one or two more arms firmly. I hope I can do it at the right time."

Okada is set to compete in the G1 Climax 33, which is set to begin on Saturday, July 15. Fightful will have full coverage of the tournament.
