Tetsuya Naito To Face Hiromu Takahashi At NJPW 48th Anniversary Event
Two of the most exciting members of Los Ingornables De Japon will face off for the first time ever at the upcoming NJPW 48th Anniversary Show. An old tradition at the events saw the Junior Heavyweight Champion face the Heavyweight Championship, which is something Kazuchika Okada revived to face Will Ospreay. This will happen once again, as Hiromu Takahashi will face Tetsuya Naito in a non-title contest. Naito has long served as a mentor to Takahashi, meaning this match will mean a lot to both men.
Without Tetsuya Naito, Hirmou Takahashi Wouldn’t Have Made It Through The NJPW Dojo
Hiromu Takahashi has not been quiet about the fact that it was Tetsuya Naito who made him stay in NJPW. The strict dojo system didn’t exactly work out for someone as aloof as Takahashi. Naito noticed this, as well as his insane talent and took him under his wing and showed him how to wrestle. Since then, they have been linked. Once Takahashi returned from excursion, he had joined Los Ingornables De Japon, as their new Junior Heavyweight ace. Their tag team chemistry shows this perfectly, with them seeming like they share one mind when they team up. While they have never captured tag team gold, it could be something that will come in their future.
They Will Deliver A Showstealing Performance
With how much chemistry the two have as partners, it is not hard to think that they will be fantastic opponents. They are two of the most skilled members of the roster, and will hold nothing back as they prove who is better. While there are no titles on the line, if Takahashi is able to win the match he will be in line for a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight & Intercontinental Championships later in the Spring. Many have felt that Takahashi has the potential to make it in the heavyweight division despite his size, based on skill alone. This will be a showcase of how good he actually is. We will likely see a Naito victory, but it will be one of the best matches on the card.
