Makoto Hashi is an 11-year veteran who started out as a Jr. Heavyweight, but moved up to Heavyweight after a 1-day GHC Jr. Heavyweight Title reign. He started out in NOAH as part of Jun Akiyama’s Sternness faction, and won the GHC Jr. Heavyweight Championship in April 2002 but vacated the title almost immediately. He then moved up to Heavyweight afterwards before missing most of a nearly 3-year stretch from late ’05 through late ’08 due to injuries. When he returned he did manage an 8-month reign as GHC Hardcore Champion before dropping the belt to Kenta Kobashi and being relegated to more of a jobber in tag team matches.
Hashi is no longer officially with NOAH as of January 2010, as he opted not to re-sign with the promotion. He is now a freelancer but will still make at least occasional appearances in the promotion in the future while competing in other promotions-he’s also a semi-regular in Futen.
