Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tomohiro Ishii to Compete on STRONG! 【NJoA】

The Ace to compete at Thunder Studios, wrestling on STRONG for the first time




After a video challenge last week to IWGP United States heavyweight Champion Lance Archer was accepted, Hiroshi Tanahashi’s first appearance in the US for over 18 months was made official. Meanwhile, Tomohiro Ishii was a surprise announcement this week as a match was signed between the Stone Pitbull and IMPACT’s Moose. Yet that isn’t all the Ace and Ishii will be doing in the US! 

On August 16, both will be in action at the first ever NJPW STRONG tapings with fans at Thunder Studios! If you’re lucky enough to be in attendance, get hyped to see the Ace and the Stone Pitbull in action, and otherwise, get set to watch Tanahashi and Ishii on NJPW World and FITE in the near future when Fighting Spirit Unleashed airs on STRONG! Plus watch Tanahashi’s special interview about what the STRONG experience means to him!
