Kazuchika Okada Reveals His First Partner For NJPW Wrestling Dontaku NJPW

Kazuchika Okada has revealed his first partner for the upcoming NJPW Wrestling Dontaku.

New Japan Pro Wrestling announced the lineup for Wrestling Dontaku on May 3.

One of the top matches for the show will see Strong Style’s Minoru Suzuki, El Desperado and Ren Narita defend the NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Championships against Kazuchika Okada and two partners of his choosing.

On April 21, NJPW revealed that Okada has chosen fellow CHAOS member Tomohiro Ishii as the first of his two tag team partners for the NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Championship match.

On the company’s website, NJPW wrote the following:

After Strong Style retained their NEVER Openweight 6 Man Tag team Championships recently on the Road to Sakura Genesis, Ren Narita called out Kazuchika Okada to challenge with his choice of partners at Dontaku.

The challenge was accepted, and after Tomohiro Ishii made an appeal at a recent non televised live event, one of the Rainmaker’s partners is official! Okada and Ishii will do battle at Dontaku, but who will join them?
