1001 MATCHES – TOMOHIRO ISHII

(by PHIL RIPPA)

Tomohiro Ishii really should be everyone’s favorite wrestler. Love him so much.


741) TOMOHIRO ISHII vs. MASAAKI MOCHIZUKI – WAR (07/13/00)

WAR DADDY~! Baby Ishii and Mochizuki beat on each for our entertainment.

742) TOMOHIRO ISHII vs. RIKI CHOSHU – NEW JAPAN (07/29/07)

Match is totally acceptable. I just enjoy recognizing Choshu for his role in allowing us to have the Ishii we know and love today.

743) TOMOHIRO ISHII vs. MASATO TANAKA – NEW JAPAN (02/03/13 –┬áNEVER Openweight Title)

If you love two dudes just trading strikes, this match is for you. If not… well professional wrestling may no longer be for you.

744) TOMOHIRO ISHII vs. HIROSHI TANAHASHI – NEW JAPAN G1 CLIMAX 2013 (08/02/13)

Dreamy Tanahashi and dreamy in his own walking bourbon barrel way Ishii start the 2013 G1 with hot fire. One of the numerous matches between the two that I could pick.

745) TOMOHIRO ISHII vs. KOTA IBUSHI – NEW JAPAN (05/24/14 –┬áNEVER Openweight Title Match)

PART ONE : PART TWO

Ishii is all “I USED TO BE A JUNIOR TOO!!!” and he and Ibushi work really well together. A match so good it makes people forget about a really really good AJ Styles/Okada match that main evented the show.

746) TOMOHIRO ISHII vs. KAZUCHIKA OKADA – NEW JAPAN G1 CLIMAX 2016 (08/06/16)

Speaking of Okada… arguably Ishii’s greatest match.
