IWGP World Title Match Set For Impact Emergence, Hiromu Takahashi Wants To Face Darby Allin



In a recent interview with FanNation, IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Hiromu Takahashi expressed his desire to defend his title against Darby Allin in AEW.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On wanting to give junior heavyweight the division a spotlight: “I think Japanese fans already know about how great junior heavyweight wrestling is, but not many fans in the US know what the division means. In the US, cruiserweight divisions used to be more common, but the word ‘junior’ doesn’t mean ‘less than’. Not at all.”

On competing at Forbidden Door 2023: “I couldn’t wrestle at the Forbidden Door last year because I got a fever. I was gutted, so I’m so glad I could wrestle in the show this time.”

On wanting to defend the title against Allin: “A dream of mine is to have a match on live prime time TV. I’d be stoked to wrestle in AEW any time and defend the IWGP junior heavyweight title there. Last year, I was supposed to team up with Darby Allin and Sting. So I want to team up with Sting rather than wrestle him. Wrestling someone? That would be Darby.”
