BIOGRAPHY

After cutting his teeth on the American indie circuit, Chase Owens won the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Championship, a title he defended on his NJPW debut at King of Pro Wrestling 2014. A late entrant in the 2015 Best of the Super Juniors tournament, Owens proved his worth with a 4-3 campaign that showed his considerable mat wrestling ability and knack for bending the rules. This caught the eye of Kenny Omega, who recruited Owens into the Bullet Club to tag with him; first in the 2015 Super Junior Tag tournament, and then as a heavyweight in the next year’s World Tag league. 

Despite considerable ability, Owens felt overlooked over the coming months, passed over for entry in the G1 Climax, not finding a place on Wrestle Kingdom cards, and unable to score a defining big win. Finally in 2019’s New Japan Cup, Owens brought an impressive amount of fight to first round opponent Juice Robinson, and came away with the victory. That win led to a challenge for Robinson’s IWGP United States Championship at the end of the tour; Owens failed in his attempt despite considerable help from Jado and Bad Luck Fale, but the ill mannered West Virginia Boy is gunning for a top spot in the near future.
