Clarification: Kazuchika Okada's AEW Deal Rumors Debunked

Kazuchika Okada, the All Elite, is receiving a lower salary than what was initially reported.
Despite being approached by WWE, Welcome Okada ultimately chose AEW as his first contracted talent on Dynamite, where he aligned with The Young Bucks to counter Eddie Kingston. The Elite greeted Okada as they announced their partnership.
Oadha threw the title belt around his waist, setting the stage for a possible match. The Elite welcomed Okada as they announced their merger. Thursday night saw Okada and The Young Bucks taking part in the Collision TV tapings.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Okada had agreed to a three-year contract worth 2 billion yen ($13), as per reports from Tokyo Sports. The contract period yielded 5 million over its lifetime, with an average of $4. A yearly sum of 5 million is not realistic.
Three years is the correct length. Meltzer stated that the number he signed for was a very large one, even though it was much lower than the real number.
