YEAR OF BIRTH
3 December 1993
One of the first crop of trainees at the new NJPW Los Angeles Dojo, Coughlin trained hard under Katsuyori Shibata before beginning his journey in earnest as a Young Lion at Fighting Spirit Unleashed. He may have lost his early matches against Clark Connors, but his journey continued, with appearances for Ring of Honor, and at NJPW’s New Beginning USA events early in 2019.
In August, Coughlin would get a big win over Japanese Young Lion Shota Umino in Long Beach during the SUPER J-CUP 2019 tour. That would secure his place in the next month’s Young Lion Cup.
