Tamon Honda is a 16-year veteran who was an accomplished freestyle wrestler before turning pro. He represented Japan in the 1984, 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games, recording a best finish of 5th in 1984.
Although Honda joined All-Japan in the 1980s, it would be 1993 before he actually debuted. Although he did win 2 All-Asia Tag Team Championships in the late 1990s, he was generally viewed as an underachieveer in the promotion. He left the promotion as part of the mass talent exodus to form NOAH, where he formed a solid tag team with Kenta Kobashi. The pair won 2 GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Championships and reigned for a total of nearly a year.
Honda left NOAH in January 2010, opting not to sign a new contract with the promotion and instead become a freelancer. He still makes appearances in the promotion but now only works a couple of shows each tour and has started making appearances in the smaller independents.
