BIOGRAPHY

The self-proclaimed “Once in a Century Masterpiece”, Tanahashi embodies what it means to be the Ace of New Japan Pro Wrestling. After debuting for NJPW in October of 1999 he has the highest record of IWGP Heavyweight titles (7 times) and defended the title a record breaking 11 times (dubbed the “V11”). His finisher is the majestic yet devastating High Fly Flow. Even after a hard-fought match, he likes to close out the night with a rocking air-guitar show for eager fans. Recreating the spectacle of his biggest matches, he raises his air-guitar high with energy and yells his famous “I love you!” to the crowd.
