Okada: Released by IMPACT Wrestling

Okada: Released by IMPACT Wrestling

Okada (aka Okato) has been released by IMPACT Wrestling. His profile has since been removed from the IMPACTWRESTLING.COM roster.

Okada had originally came to TNA as part of a talent exchange with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) but was sparsely used and spent much of his time on TNA’s internationally syndicated show Xplosion. He enjoyed a brief return to IMPACT as Samoa Joe’s sidekick “Okato”, a comedy character based largely on Kato from Green Hornet.

This is not expected to be the end of the releases, more are expected over the coming weeks as IMPACT Wrestling looks to trim the roster to a more manageable size ensuring that the roster are getting TV time and not being left sitting at home due to limited TV time available.
