Hiroshi Tanahashi has big plans for 2023
Hiroshi Tanahashi has outlined his plans for 2023. With AEW set to host this year's All In at Wembley Stadium, he has his sights set on competing at the show.
However, before that, the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion plans on winning the AEW World Championship in the US and the G1 Climax in Japan.
Speaking to Tokyo Sports, Tanahashi claimed that he will also main event All In:
"My Wembley debut is coming soon. I will prove that I am the first Japanese to win a title match and main event at Wembley in 100 years. I haven't left my name in the history books yet, so I will start from here. Winning the belt in the U.S., winning the G1, and the main event at Wembley. It's all set up nicely. It's Mr. Blueprint."
Tanahashi is the current NJPW Never Six-Man Tag Team Champion. He won the titles alongside Kazuchika Okada and Tomohiro Ishii.
Okada and Ishii will feature in marquee matches at the upcoming Forbidden Door II pay-per-view.
