Hailing originally from Osaka but now calling Mexico home, Okumura, known as the “Luchador Japonés,” brings a unique blend of Japanese and Mexican wrestling styles to the ring. It’s this style and his extensive experience that Okumura hopes gives him his shot to outlast 39 other combatants in the Battle RIOT.

With an illustrious career spanning two decades in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), Okumura has established himself as a seasoned veteran and a force to be reckoned with. During his tenure in Mexico’s most prestigious wrestling organization, Okumura achieved a significant milestone by capturing the CMLL World Trios Championship alongside Hiroshi Tanahashi and Taichi, solidifying his reputation. Now, Okumura fights for a title shot, anytime anywhere.

The question is: what happens if he wins and must now fight his own friend and tag team partner, Satoshi Kojima?!

A mash-up of a battle Royale and anything goes street fight, this super-sized main event will feature 40 wrestlers with new participants entering the ring every 60 seconds. There will be surprises! There will be legends! There will be surprise entriants… and there will be no disqualifications! Elimination is by pinfall, submission or by throwing an individual over the top rope. Anything is possible in a Battle Riot!

The winner gets a World Heavyweight Title Shot anywhere, anytime! It could be that night; it could be in 6 months. The challenger has the key to unlock an instant title shot against whoever the champion is!
