Tomohiro Ishii to team with Kazuchika Okada at NJPW Wrestling Dontaku

One of Kazuchika Okada’s partners for Wrestling Dontaku has been revealed.

New Japan’s website on Friday confirmed that Tomohiro Ishii will be one of Okada’s  two partners. Previously, it had been announced that Okada would team with two mystery partners to take on current NEVER Six-Man Tag Team Champions Ren Narita, El Desperado, and Minoru Suzuki. The website noted that Ishii had made an appeal to be Okada’s partner at a recent non-televised live event.

Since losing the IWGP World Heavyweight title earlier this month at Sakura Genesis, Okada has shifted towards teaming with other people. At Capital Collision, he teamed with Hiroshi Tanahashi in a losing effort against The Motor City Machine Guns and Aussie Open, the latter of who won the match to become the new champions.
