[Tenryu Project News] Genichiro Tenryu’s return match has been made official as he is set to return on December 29.
Mr. Puroresu, who has been unable to compete due to spinal stenosis, is set to make his return at the end of the year in a big way.
Tenryu will be teaming with Yoshihiro Takahayama, Minoru Suzuki and a “to be determined wrestler” as they take on NJPW’s Yuji Nagata, Manabu Nakanishi, Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima.
Tenryu will be teaming with the men who replaced him for the shows this year as the acting general’s, but with the news that Kensuke Sasaki is taking time away from the ring for surgery of his own that leaves an open spot for Tenryu to fill.
The match will be quite special in another way as it will see 3 generations (70, 80, and 90’s) of Japanese Pro Wrestlers in the ring at the same time.
Tenryu’s shows are known for bringing together big main events and recently he even brought together former Triple Crown Champions to compete in a special 6 man tag.
The announced return match for Tenryu is still a little over 2 months away and he aims to be 100% recovered by then. He also mentioned that he has been secretly training with his “Goo Punch” and Soccerball Kick already, with a grin on his face.
As for the lat partner for Tenryu that is still undecided, but he thanked NJPW specifically for allowing him to use their talent.
