PIZA Michinoku is an alternate gimmick/persona that TAKA Michinoku uses when participating in DDT as part of the Italian Four Horsemen. The gimmick is believed to have been introduced in 2008 when the group was formed with Francesco Togo (Dick Togo), Antonio Honda & Sasaki And Gabbana. They primarily compete in tag team and trios action.
It’s believed that TAKA will no longer use the PIZA gimmick in DDT starting in 2010 as he had a goodbye match in late December 2009. It’s not known if TAKA will still appear in DDT as his regular persona.
