“The Rainmaker” has found a new home.

Following weeks of speculation, Kazuchika Okada appears to be AEW-bound, with a contract expected to be signed in the near future.

Fightful Select is reporting that the New Japan Pro Wrestling legend and top star has effectively agreed to terms on a deal, but has not yet put pen-to-paper, as the contract is still being finalized.

AEW has been confident that they would land the top Japanese star for the past several weeks, dating back to mid-January.

There is still not much in the way of details regarding when and where Okada will make his full-time AEW debut, however it is not expected to happen until he finishes up his contractual obligations with NJPW.
