One of the “pretty boy” wrestlers in New Japan, Taichi is a 7-year pro who competes in the Jr. Heavyweight division. He started out in All-Japan and competed for them until becoming a freelancer in February 2005, then joined New Japan a couple years ago and entered the G1 Tag League in 2008, teaming with Milano Collection AT. In April 2009 he dropped his last name and began competing simply as Taichi.
Taichi left New Japan in 2010 for an excursion to the CMLL promotion in Mexico. He will return to New Japan in late June 2010…albeit somewhat bald. He lost his hair in early June 2010 in a hair vs. hair match in CMLL.
