BIOGRAPHY

An indomitable force, Goto has earned a following for his displays of courage in the ring. Goto’s many achievements include winning his first G1 CLIMAX, 3-time New Japan Cup winner, though the IWGP Heavyweight belt has still eluded him. In an attempt to turn his fortunes around, he joined CHAOS in March of 2016, and perfected his signature move, GTR, in order to inflict maximum damage to his opponent.

Goto is a former IWGP Jr. heavyweight and Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, a former IWGP Intercontinental Champion, and has won the NEVER Openweight Championship a record tying five times. In September 2020, he continued his close association with the NEVER mark, becoming NEVER Openweight 6-Man tag team Champion with Tomohiro Ishii and YOSHI-HASHI. 

In 2021, Goto proved he was a forced to be reckoned with in any field, specifically, the six man scene, as CHAOS scored a record nine defences of the NEVER titles. Through that historic reign, Goto’s bonds with YOSHI-HASHI grew firmer, and the two would claim World Tag League 2021 victory, moving to challenge Dangerous Tekkers and capturing the IWGP Tag Team Championships at Wrestle Kingdom 16. Bihsamon’s reign was brief, but with extra motivation from competing in AEW, Goto headed into a strong performance during G1 Climax 32.
