BIOGRAPHY

A CHAOS fan favorite who has saw sudden success as a singles wrestler in 2016. YOSHI-HASHI trained in Mexico starting in May 2010, and returned to NJPW to join CHAOS in January 2012. Although he failed to initially find clear successes, his popularity slowly grew due to his unique personality and showmanship outside the ring.

On August 9 2020, after over 12 years of challenges and setbacks, YOSHI-HASHI finally tasted championship gold, winning his first title alongside Hirooki Goto and Tomohiro Ishii as NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champion. The Headhunter would continue to lead his team to great success, scoring a record nine defences of the title through 2021, and he and Goto would go on to World Tag League 2021 success before challenging for IWGP Tag team Championship gold at Wrestle Kingdom 16. With a convincing victory over Dangerous Tekkers, YOSHI-HASHI could finally call himself an IWGP champion. 

Bishamon’s tag title reign would come to an end at the hands of the United Empire, but the Headhunter’s heart would not be broken. Before G1 Climax 32, he became a two time NEVER Openweight six man champion alongside Goto and YOH, and his singles tournament campaign included an impressive win over Juice Robinson, YOSHI-HASHI continuing to prove that if you keep fighting, everything can change in an instant.
