BIOGRAPHY

Teaming with partner SHO in Roppongi 3K, YOH has been a spectacular and popular member of the junior heavyweight division, as well as a master of tag team wrestling.  

Returning to NJPW from excursion on October 9, 2017 under the tutelage of Rocky Romero, he formed Roppongi 3K. That same night, they defeated Ricochet and Ryusuke Taguchi to become the 54th IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions. SHO and YOH would also win the annual junior heavyweight tag team tournament, in both elimination and league format, three years in a row, en route to five tag title reigns.

Summer 2021 saw SHO turn his back on his former partner, joining HOUSE OF TORTURE and ending Roppongi 3K. YOH went through a deep crisis of confidence, but driven by revenge, was able to rally, reaching the final of Best of the Super Jr. 27, defeating SHO en route and besting his former friend again at Wrestle Kingdom 16.
