BIOGRAPHY

Naito is the brazen leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon, wrestling with unparalleled charisma and a burning desire to show the world what he can do.

After debuting in NJPW in May 2006 his first success was to be in the first team to win both IWGP Junior Heavyweight and Heavyweight Tag Team Champions (as a part of NO LIMIT, with Yujiro Takahashi). In September 2013, he won the NEVER Openweight Championship. In November 2015 he founded Los Ingobernables de Japon (L・I・J) and began a successful rise within NJPW that culminated on January 4 & 5 2020 when he became the first ever double IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Champion. 

After two years of setbacks, Naito has made it his goal to main event in the Tokyo Dome on January 4 once again. Starting his 2023 singles campaign with a bout against Kenoh of Pro-Wrestling NOAH and Kongo, Naito would find himself in a Tokyo Dome main event sooner than expected- when he was challenged by Keiji Muto to wrestle Muto’s last match on February 21. After victory on that night, Naito won the G1 Climax 33- his third G1 trophy. Now Naito is ready for the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 18, and a chorus of 7de Ja Pon’ years int he making.
