--- Main defense of Tokyo Dome, defended IWGP with the best content on the best stage. Please tell me how you feel now.
'It's about 13 years now, I'm doing a professional wrestling, but it was like I thought it would be a real deal, so well Keny Omega was a strong opponent'
--- Even now I still have bruises in my body, but the game lasted for 46 minutes 45 seconds, I think that was a really struggling fight. So we would like to ask again about Kenny Omega who was the first single this time - what kind of player is he?
'As I said before the game, he is definitely stronger than AU Styles or than BULLET CLUB. Prince David so far, the strongest foreign player in the history of the New Japan Wrestling I think that I am the next strongest player in my New Japan Wrestling'
--- I think that it was a match where you were able to see the preparedness and pride that you are going to carry a New Japan in the game with the respecting Omega players.
'Of course, I think that it was also in Kenny, I certainly thought that I took this belt and I thought that I would move the New Japan Pro Wrestling, but I was surpassing in the sense of that preparation. I guess there is not anything else in the new Japan pro wrestling, there will be only me, a player who wins and can win over Kenny Omega, who will win even if it is done.'
--- I think that there were many expectations at the Tokyo Dome Convention this year, as I have lost a lot of athletes last year, I think that it was greatly raised than last year. How about that atmosphere?
'At first, really though the dome finished, I thought what would happen to the New Japan Pro Wrestling, but in fact too many guests entered this year and it was really awesome that everyone sent its cheering shout. So I just can’t quit by this. It is not, and I will firmly enlarge the New Japan Wrestling, so next year I’ll do my best to do more than this year!'
--- I think that it is an Okada player in the position to bear New Japan, what kind of world will you bring this New Japan in the future?
'Well, as July, New Japan Wrestling went to the United States as it was announced on the way, which does not mean that Japan is giving up. For America we will doing our best in America, and for overseas I think that I will go to various places and spread the New Japan Pro Wrestling firmly around the world in 2017. Japan has a wonderful thing called Pro Wrestling, a Japanese pro wrestling in Japan, that there is a wonderful player named Okada nationwide I would like to spread it to everyone in the world, '
--- Today's result has become a form of sharing the new Japanese belt with CHAOS and Ross ・ Ingo Berna Breath, how is that feeling felt?
'Because I was concentrating on the game a bit, I was sorry about the previous game but I have not watched it, so I can not figure out what kind of belt movement was, but the two teams are New Japan Wrestling I think that it is a team with momentum in. Of course, which one is up, I think that this belt is on, so I gathered more belts on CHAOS, CHAOS is the strongest team I wish I could show me that it was good.'
--- In today's game, after almost 30 minutes passed, I could already see fearful tears in the audience seats. I think that such a sight was not recently a New Japan Wrestling, but I thought that the atmosphere has changed considerably, but how is it now?
'It’s difficult to say. Okada vs. Kenny today is a game that echoes to those fans hearts, there are so bad tournaments that really empathize and cry, gods that can cry. I think there are also exciting matches and I think that it is New Japan Wrestling that can show such performance so it is the charm of professional wrestling, so I think that I can show that kind of thing like that.'
--- After the game I told you that Kenny Omega is the strongest foreign player in history of New Japan, so what part of his personality made you feel he’s strong?
'I have never played for 47 minutes like this ... It seems that I did it to Tanahashi-san, I heard you did it for Naito-san. I have never done it, and in my history, the New Japan Wrestling is about 45th anniversary. But I think that it is the best now and the player who is doing it with me in this, Kenny ・ Omega this time, but this time it has been driven to this point and he could never come home like this hanging around. So I admit it, of course, I think that it was a game that fans should admit as well.'
--- When did you get the wound on your neck?
'I do not know (laughing). I do not really know what I was doing. It is invisible because I do not know what is going on. Is it trace of shoes? Drop kick? I can’t agree, it is not possible to trace with my drop kick.'
--- Have you ever thought that there has never been a perfect rival to Okada but now Kenny Omega is likely to become such an existence?
'I think that it is not necessary for me to say that Kenny Omega is a rival, and I think that it should be decided by the person who is looking at it, and it is obviously apparent in this game that in the history of New Japan, here It might be a battle that you have started a rival story between Okada and Kenny, perhaps it might end if Kenny does not do it well ... I will treat you as a rival There is not such a thing, I admit that it is strong.'
'(I borrowed a shoulder to Young Bucks to go to the interview site. When I sit on a chair, I wear the upper body to the table and hold the microphone. Young Bucks stood behind the Omega). I lost today but very I was full of proud feelings. I did not expect that such feelings would boil up. Sometimes I have to make such a bitter thought, but I respect you, Okada, you are the best in Japan, no, perhaps It might be the best professional wrestler in the world, but if there is a chance of rematch I will definitely not lose next time I will swear here if absolutely beaten. I do not think that I lost New Japan is the best for me. You gave me the opportunity. And in 2016, it brought me the best time. I'm very sorry that the beginning of 2017 began with the biggest defeat in my career but I am thankful that Young Bucks backed me up even after their match was over. I think that Young Bucks and I will be the driving force behind this professional wrestling world. I have no further questions. I have no further comments. Good-bye ... I will not say that after that. It's just Goodbye.'
