BIOGRAPHY

This mysterious masked man debuted for New Japan in January 2014, but truly found his spiritual home in Suzuki-Gun later in the year.

Desperado teamed up with Yoshinobu Kanemaru forming the junior heavyweight division’s most effective tag team. Desperado & Kanemaru seized the IWGP Junior Tag Team Championships at NJPW’s 46th Anniversary event, and held the titles for 304 days, becoming the longest running champions in two decades. In 2020, Desperado broadened his horizons, competing in New Japan Cup and challenging Shingo Takagi for the NEVER Openweight title. He also reignited a bitter feud with Hiromu Takahashi. A bitter Best of the Super Jr Final would see Hiromu victorious, but when Takahashi won and then vacated the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship due to injury, Desperado claimed his first singles gold in a three way battle. 

A two time champion by the end of 2021, Desperado vanquished his rival to start 2022 in the Tokyo Dome, before racking up more defences against Master Wato and SHO. Falling to Taiji Ishimori at Dontaku in May, Desperado was further fidspirited by another Best of the Super Jr. final loss to Hiromu Takahashi, and sought to redefine himself in a more violent light, facing Jon Moxley in a no DQ battle at Music City Mayhem in Nashville in July.
