Naofumi Yamamoto, better known to WWE fans as Yoshi Tatsu, returned to New
Japan Pro Wrestling at last night’s King of Pro Wrestling event. He came out
during AJ Styles’ IWGP World Championship match against Hiroshi Tanahashi to
fight off Jeff Jarrett, who was in Styles’ corner. Tanahashi won the match and
It was then announced that Styles and Yamamoto will fight at the November 8
show “Power Struggle”.
Yamamoto started his career in NJPW and was in the same group of people who
went on to be some of the promotion’s biggest stars. Commentators at KoPW
referenced his time in WWE as Yoshi Tatsu.
