First Name Announced



Holder of titles in Ring of Honor, Pro Wrestling NOAH and Dragon Gate itself, SHINGO has emerged as one of the true talents of the ‘new wave’ of Dragon Gate stars.

A former professional bodybuilder, SHINGO entered the wrestling world under the tutelage of the legendary Animal Hamaguchi. So obsessed with wrestling was this young man that, when asked to fill out a questionnaire at middle school on his chosen occupations, he simply put “All Japan, New Japan, FMW”.

But it was Dragon Gate that fulfilled his goals. In 2004, SHINGO became the first Dragon Gate graduate and joined his teacher CIMA in the Crazy Max group (and later in the tremendously named Waku Waku Fuji Land!).

But it was with Blood Generation that SHINGO really found his feet, entering into the group’s feud with the Do Fixer group, a feud that spread from Dragon Gate into several Ring of Honor shows.

In 2007, SHINGO and Naruki Doi became Ring of Honor tag champions on the promotion’s UK tour, where they beat the Briscoes. Less than a year later, SHINGO and BxB Hulk were GHC Jr tag champions. After splitting from new unit Typhoon, he formed a new unit KAMIKAZE with Akira Tozawa, Dragon Kid and Taku Iwasa, and now feuds with CIMA and Typhoon.

Winner of the 2009 wXw 16 Carat Gold tournament, the powerful and gifted, SHINGO is a threat to any who face him.
