NJPW superstar and current IWGP U.S. champion Hiroshi Tanahashi recently spoke with Tokyo Sports about his classic rivalry against Shinsuke Nakamura, and how he most likely won’t get to face the King of Strong Style again due to him succeeding in WWE. Highlights are below.
On their numerous classic showdowns:
Weve fought many times, but when it comes down to the very end, theres a theory of who will win. I think there will be a lot of things to see in this match, such as a clash of values based on what weve done in New Japan and what weve done overseas.
Says he will most likely not get to face Nakamura again:
I think [Shinsuke] Nakamura may be thinking about finishing his career in the United States, so I think its unlikely that it will happen. I think its unlikely to happen, but you never know what can happen in the world of professional wrestling.
