Yota Tsuji made his return to New Japan Pro Wrestling during today’s NJPW Wrestling Dontaku 2023 event at the Fukuoka International Center in Fukuoka, Japan.

Following the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Match between SANADA and Hiromu Takahashi, Tsuji appeared and attacked SANADA, followed up by aligning with Los Ingobernables de Japon as the mystery person that NJPW had been teasing since March.

Tsuji last appeared for New Japan Pro Wrestling as part of their 2021 NJPW Summer Struggle Tour and had been on excursion in Europe and Mexico, working for promotions including Revolution Pro Wrestling (RevPro), Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw) and Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL).
