Hiroshi Tanahashi appeared in a video during Dynamite, so he was not in the building. He could appear live on AEW programming soon, because he made it clear that he is next in line to face the IWGP United States Champion.

Tanahashi did not confirm where this match will take place, but he called dibs on facing the winner of Lance Archer’s IWGP United States Title defense against Hikuleo at Fight For The Fallen.

This isn’t the first time that Tanahashi has appeared on AEW Dynamite via video package. He was also featured during Chris Jericho’s 30th Anniversary celebration.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
