Chris Dickinson challenges Tomohiro Ishii for NJPW Lonestar Shootout

Dickinson challenged Ishii for a match that would take place on April 1.

Chris Dickinson is returning to NJPW in April, and already has a name in mind.

A video posted on NJPW Global’s social media had Dickinson issuing a challenge to Tomohiro Ishii on April 1. That would be NJPW Strong’s Lonestar Shootout event in Dallas, Texas during WrestleMania weekend.

In the video, which you can see above, Dickinson said they said five months has a highly accelerated recovery time, but his response was that he was a highly accelerated human being. He went on to say that he will pick himself up again and again to accomplish his goals, and that is the definition of strong style. The video then ended with Dickinson throwing out the challenge to Ishii.

Dickinson injured his hip joint at NJPW’s Battle in the Valley back on November 13 following a frog splash. In January, Dickinson said he would return to action around GCW’s Spring Break event, which will also take place during WrestleMania weekend.
