Default Anybody know which NJPW wrestlers can speak English?

So if some of the Japanese NJPW wrestlers came to America via GFW, they might need to cut or participate in a promo. Anyone know who of the Japanese NJPW wrestlers speak fluent English so they can do promos?

How many can speak some English (backstage interviews and the like)?

Pretty much 80% of the urban japanese population speaks English so I think they'll be fine. Off the top of my head I know Tanahashi and Nakamura speak english. I believe Jado and Gedo too. I don't know about Okada.

I would think that most have basic English knowledge at the very least. I'm not sure if it's learned or just picked up but every time I've seen a Japanese wrestler speak English in the US it was understandable. Not great, but understandable. Guys who've spent time in the US probably speak pretty good English. Okada, Tanahashi, Watanabe etc.
