NJPW President Hiroshi Tanahashi made a thrilling return to AEW on the May 25th episode of AEW Collision.

Serving as the mystery partner for Claudio Castagnoli and Daniel Garcia, Tanahashi helped lead the trio to victory over Lance Archer and The Righteous (Vincent & Dutch).

The match concluded with an electrifying finish as Tanahashi hit Vincent with his signature Sling Blade, followed by the High Fly Flow, securing the win for his team.
