Didn't know this for sure, but I'm not shocked. There are some pretty complicated politics at play there, especially if you go back before the 92

While we're talking about Okada main eventing things around the world, has Okada main evented a Rev Pro show yet? I'd be surprised if that wasn't the case.

Yeah, for sure Okada vs Aries and one of the Strong Style Evolved shows. I THINK Okada vs Ospreay was a main event too.

AJ vs. Liger was the main event on the Ospreay vs. Okada RevPro show.


We can add the ECW/Asylum/XPW/2300/Alhambra Arena to this list as well (War of the Worlds 2015: Night 1, teaming with Nakamura against the Briscoes).


And while doing research for that I stumbled across NJPW's card for their Philly debut in 2011. The top two matches on the card were MVP s. Yano in a tournament final, and Makabe vs. Rhino in a street fight. The two matches below those on the card were HIROSHI TANAHASHI VS. DAVEY RICHARDS and APOLLO 55 VS. LOW KI & HOMICIDE. A clear miscalculation on NJPW's part.
