BIOGRAPHY

A veteran of multiple promotions, Taiji Ishimori has brought his speed, athleticism and ruthless mentality to earn success everywhere he goes. A member of BULLET CLUB since 2018, Ishimori has become a key player in the group. 

With alaundry list of titles already under his belt in Pro-Wrestling NOAH, Ishimori’s first NJPW championship was the NEVER Openweight 6-Man tag title, which he won alongside G.o.D. in August 2018. The next January he won his first IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship from KUSHIDA, and claimed the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships with El Phantasmo the same year.

2020 began with he and ELP losing the IWGP Junior Tag titles, before he progressed to the quarter final mark in the New Japan Cup. Challenging IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Hiromu Takahashi for Summer Struggle in Jingu, Ishimori was relentless in attacking Takahashi’s injured shoulder, a strategy that paid off with his second title win. The Bone Soldier reigns supreme in the junior heavyweight division, and will be hard to topple in 2021.
