The next confirmed NJPW Superstar is:
Tetsuya Naito is a true success story within New Japan Pro Wrestling, combining amazing athletic ability and undeniable charisma. Ring of Honor fans are sure to see something really special. Naito trained to be a professional wrestler in Japan under the legendary Animal Hamiguchi. He took a chance and earned his way into NJPW through a public work out in 2005 and hasn’t looked back since!
Working his way up through the ranks, Naito has faced and defeated some of the very best. His Pluma Blanca submission and Stardust Press are two signature moves that he has uses with great success. Naito is very diverse in his style with a great mix of mat based and technical wrestling. He also takes to the air when necessary.
His list of accomplishments is impressive. He is a former IWGP NEVER Champion, former IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champion and a 2 time former IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Champion. In 2013 he won the prestigious G1 Climax tournament. He then unsuccessfully challenged then IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada at Wrestle Kingdom 8 in front of over 35,000 fans at the Tokyo Dome. Naito is unique, hard hitting and without a doubt will provide plenty of challenge and excitement in Ring of Honor. Whomever he faces will not have an easy night and you fans will be in for something truly special.
