Masato Tanaka Returns On May 27th
ZERO-ONE President Shinjiro Otani announced today that Masato Tanaka would make his in-ring return on 5/27 at Korakuen Hall after being out of action for 7 months while recuperating from his shoulder surgery. Tanaka said that his doctors have given him full clearance to return to the ring after doing some heavy workout sessions to see how his shoulder would feel and he had no problems. Otani started to talk about who Tanaka would face in his return match when Yoshito Sasaki stepped in and demanded to face Tanaka saying that he wants to prove himself to everyone so they can see that he is ready to step up to the big time. Tanaka said that he wants to be in this year’s Fire Festival but knows that he must win some matches to show that he is qualified.
