Hiroshi Tanahashi (棚橋弘至, Tanahashi Hiroshi, born November 13, 1976) is a Japanese professional wrestler. Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, he works primarily for New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), where he is the current NEVER Openweight Champion in his first reign. His accolades in NJPW include a record setting eight reigns as IWGP Heavyweight Champion, two reigns as IWGP Intercontinental Champion, three reigns as IWGP Tag Team Champion, and three reigns as NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champion. He has also won NJPW's premier tournament, the G1 Climax, on three occasions (2007, 2015 and 2018) and won the New Japan Cup twice, in 2005 and 2008, making him one of the greatest and most decorated wrestlers in New Japan's history.

Through NJPW's working agreements with Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), Pro Wrestling Noah and Revolution Pro Wrestling, Tanahashi has also held the CMLL World Tag Team Championship, the CMLL World Trios Championship, the CMLL Universal Championship, GHC Tag Team Championship, and the RevPro British Heavyweight Championship. In total, he has over 21 championship reigns.

When Tanahashi was inducted into the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame in 2013, Dave Meltzer stated that "you could make a strong case for him as the best in-ring performer in the business today", adding that he was "the leading star in New Japan Pro-Wrestling's comeback from being in terrible shape a few years back to being the No. 2 pro wrestling company in the world".
