Konosuke Takeshita heading back to Japan for DDT Wrestle Peter Pan


Konosuke Takeshita is heading back to Japan.

Takeshita wrote on Twitter after his appearance on AEW Dark tonight that he is heading back to Japan ahead of DDT’s Wrestle Peter Pan event on August 20.

“I have to go back to Japan at the DDT big show on August 20,” Takeshita wrote. “I don't have much time left in the US. I hope to come back to here soon and I hope you all feel the same way.”

Takeshita, who regularly wrestles for DDT, arrived for an excursion back in May, wrestling both for AEW and the independent wrestling scene. In AEW, he faced off against the likes of Hangman Page, Eddie Kingston, and most recently Jon Moxley.

On the independent scene, Takeshita wrestled against names such as Speedball Mike Bailey, Josh Alexander, Davey Richards, and Jonathan Gresham.

DDT’s Wrestle Peter Pan event, their annual big show of the year, will take place August 20 at the  Ota City General Gymnasium.
