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 former champion by 2022, Desperado showed a fiercely independent drive as he took on diverse opponents in diverse scenarios. That included Jun Kasai and Jon Moxley in brutal deathmatches, as well as putting El Lindaman and Francesco Akira first NJPW appearances into the universe. Starting 2023 no longer a part of the freshly disbanded Suzuki-Gun, he started just short of the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom, but looked to bounce back in his own unique way, winning the NEVER 6 Man titles in the Strong Style team for a spell, before battling Jon Moxley in a brutal Final Death match in Korakuen Hall. On January 4 2024, Desperado beat Hiromu Takahashi and won the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. His celebration on capturing the title was cut short by Yoshinobu Kanemaru & SHO at the backstage interview. Although the title match set on January 23 at Korakuen Hall, Desperado successfully defended the title from Kanemaru, proving his strength as the Champion.
