BIOGRAPHY

Naito is the brazen leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon, and the current IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Champion.

After debuting in NJPW in May 2006 he won IWGP Junior Heavyweight and Heavyweight Tag Team Champions (as a part of NO LIMIT, with Yujiro Takahashi). In September 2013, he won the NEVER Openweight Championship. In November 2015 he founded Los Ingobernables de Japon (L・I・J) and began a successful rise within NJPW by winning the IWGP Heavyweight Championship 2 times and the IWGP Intercontinental Championship 4 times before 2020.

Over two nights on January 4 & 5 2020, Naito became the IWGP Heavyweight & Intercontinental double Champion for the first time in NJPW history. Though former teammate EVIL took those titles at Dominion, he quickly regained the double gold on August 29 in Jingu stadium. Hungry to prove himself in the main event as a fighting champion for both nights of Wrestle Kingdom Naito requested to face G1 winner Kota Ibushi for the double Championships on January 4 2021, even with a match against Jay White already scheduled for the next night. Even in unique circumstances, Naito has still proven he’s one of the best wrestlers in the world.
