BIOGRAPHY

The ‘jet black death mask’ Bushi revels in dirty tactics, snatching many a victory from unaware opponents. He debuted for All Japan Pro Wrestling in 2005, and began to don his famous masks when wrestling abroad in Mexico. He joined NJPW in January of 2013, but was sidelined following an accident during a match. Upon healing, he returned to join Naito’s Los Ingobernables De Japon in November 2015.

The LIJ style seemed a natural fit for BUSHI, whose new, ammorality combined well with his natural athleticism. His MX was always effective, but now BUSHI had the Poison Mist in his back pocket, a mist that helped him to the CMLL Welterweight Championship in December 2015, and the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship the next September. When LIJ was joined by Hiromu Takahashi, the group had an extremely effective junior heavyweight tag team on their hands, but BUSHI worked well regardless of his LIJ partners. With EVIL and SANADA, BUSHI became a three time NEVER Openweight Six Man Champion, and when Takahashi suffered a 2018 neck injury, BUSHI would only go to greater success with Shingo Takagi as his partner. The pair won the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships at Wrestle Kingdom 13, and though their reign was brought to a halt by Roppongi 3K, BUSHI and Takagi are just a three count away from being the best junior heavyweight tag team in the world once more.
