NJPW The Great-O-Khan

– At yesterday’s NJPW G1 Climax 30 Night 17 event, The Great O-Kharn (aka former Young Lion Tomoyuki Oka) appeared and assisted Will Ospreay to help him defeat Kazuchika Okada. Ospreay turned heel and formed an alliance with O-Kharn, who noted on Twitter that he now wants to be called, “Great-O-Khan.”

He tweeted, “My name has improved. Kharn → Khan Khan is the same word as Genghis Khan, the emperor of the world’s strongest Mongol Empire. By Great-O-Khan.” You can view his tweet, along with footage from the conclusion of Ospreay vs. Okada from NJPW G1 Climax 30 Night 17, below.
