An eight-time IWGP heavyweight champion, Tanahashi has been a cornerstone of NJPW since his debut in 1999. He is recognized as one of the most influential artists in NJPW history. Many stars have tried to make a name for themselves by facing Tanahashi. AEW’s Max Caster joined that list on Tuesday; in a tweet, he made it clear that he wants to face the NJPW star.
With AEW having used “Forbidden Door” throughout 2021, this match is entirely possible. AEW has brought in many NJPW stars over the past year. Among other examples, Jon Moxley fought the likes of Yuji Nagata and Satoshi Kojima on the AEW show.
Stars like KENTA, Rocky Romero and Minoru Suzuki have also come to AEW in recent months, so it makes perfect sense for Max Caster to call someone like Hiroshi Tanahashi. Will the former world champion answer the call? Only time will tell.
Hiroshi Tanahashi holds all of NJPW
For the next few days, the challenge from Max Caster will not be on Hiroshi Tanahashi’s priority list. The veteran wrestler gave up during Wrestle Kingdom week.
Although Tanahashi, Rocky Romero, and Ryusuke Taguchi lost to Bullet Club members KENTA, Taiji Ishimori, and El Phantasmo on night one of the event, The Ace still had a chance to redeem themselves.
On the second night of Wrestle Kingdom 16, Tanahashi will challenge KENTA to the IWGP United States Championship in a No Disqualification match. But his schedule doesn’t end there.
On Tuesday night, Hiroshi Tanahashi will team up with NJPW superstar Kazuchika Okada to take on Keiji Mutoh and Kaito Kiyomiya’s Pro Wrestling NOAH team.
