Despite rumors that he had been released, TNA has added Okada's profile to the roster section to its website, which would indicate that he has not been released by the company.
TNA star Gunner has posted the following on Twitter in response to fans criticizing TNA's Wrestling Matters campaign:
"If ya shoot why don't u realize first "wrestling matter" is the whole package! Promo's, matches and everything!! It takes stories to build to good matches. I know everyone has opinions but don't be an idiot!!
Wrestling is a whole new world than it used to be!! How about learning to cut a promo or do backstage SHIT before u shoot on a company. WWE and Impact both have promos and in ring segs for a reason...to BUILD to a match! Oh I got it, let's just have random ass matches for no reason.
And there is Gunner's 2 cents worth!!! Fools."
