New Japan trio Kazuchika Okada, Shinsuke Nakamura and Kota Ibushi today received their awards from Tokyo Sports, which were announced last month.
Okada’s MVP award meant he joined legends Antonio Inoki, Jumbo Tsuruta and Genichiro Tenryu in winning the prestigious award two years running.
He was asked about the possibility of winning it three times in a row, which Inoki and Tenryu managed. If he can hold on to the title for much of 2013, he would be in line for a three-peat.
