Togi Makabe is one of the most beloved veterans on the New Japan roster. The star of ring, stage and screen, Makabe is beloved in Japan for his appearances
in major motion pictures like the Japanese version of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, and regular outings on television, his penchant for sweets making the nickname
‘sweets Makabe’ arguably more of a household utterance than ‘Unchained Gorilla NJPW The New Beginning
Makabe brings the sweets to TV and other media, but the sourness comes in ring, where he’s a brutal hard hitter. Makabe debuted on February 15 1997, and
despite being a favourite of NJPW legend Riki Choshu, he struggled as a junior heavyweight under his birth name of Shinya Makabe. Unable to break through
to the upper echelons of NJPW, his progress was stalled further by an Achilles tendon injury in August 2005.
When he returned however, it was with a redoubled passion. Always a New Japan loyalist, Makabe decided to participate in some independent events alongside
his NJPW schedule. Winning Apache Pro’s WEW Heavyweight Championship, Makabe found a love of punishing hardcore brawls, and wasn’t afraid to swing
chains and draw blood from his opponents NJPW The New Beginning
Finally with a sense of identity, Makabe brought his new bloodthirstiness to locker room politics. When Hiroyoshi Tenzan succumbed to injury, Makabe staged
a coup that put him at the top of the Great Bash Heel stable. From 2007 to 2009, GBH ran rampant through NJPW, and Makabe became an IWGP title contender
who reached the finals of the 2007 New Japan Cup and 2008 G1 Climax.
In April 2009, Toru Yano betrayed Makabe and took most of the GBH stable to form CHAOS under Shinsuke Nakamura. With only Tomoaki Honma
left at his side, Makabe earned sympathy and love from the fans, which resulted in an emotional 2009 G1 Climax victory, and, on May 3 2009, the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
Ever since, Makabe has never been for form the top flight. His heavy hitting style made him a natural rival for his former stablemate Tomohiro Ishii, and the pair engaged in memorable
battles over the NEVER Openweight Championship, a title Makabe won twice. In 2015 and 2016, he and Honma won back to back World Tag leagues, and at Wrestle Kingdom 10,
the two firm friends finally won IWGP Tag Team gold together.
After Jay White turned on CHAOS to join the Bullet Club, a rift was formed that led CHAOS and the New Japan Main Unit working together. Kazuchika Okada and Hiroshi
Tanahashi formed an unforeseen dream team, and, perhaps even more unlikely, Makabe and Toru Yano worked together again. On January 30, 2019, more than
a decade after they won the IWGP Tag Team Championships together, Makabe and Yano again held gold, alongside Ryusuke Taguchi as NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Champions.
Jon Moxley has made a huge impact upon the wrestling industry, adept in many styles, but earned his reputation as a wild brawler, reminiscent of many hardcore
legends. And although not acknowledged as such, he is a true dark horse in the industry both on camera and behind the scenes. Whose microphone skills
are reminiscent and rival that of a young Roddy Piper and in-ring ability has captured a worldwide fanbase.
FINISH HOLD TR, Shoten, Shoten-Kai, Ura-Shoten, Ushigoroshi, Goto-shiki
An indomitable force, Goto has earned a following for his displays of courage in the ring. After winning the Young Lion Cup in 2005, he went on a training excursion
to Mexico. Upon returning to NJPW in August 2007, he made a surprise move to the heavyweight division. Goto’s many achievements include winning his first
G1 CLIMAX, 3-time New Japan Cup winner, though the IWGP Heavyweight belt has still eluded him. In an attempt to turn his fortunes around, he joined
CHAOS in March of 2016, and perfected his signature move, GTR, in order to inflict maximum damage to his opponent.
While Goto has held the IWGP Intercontinental title in the past, he struggled to become associated with the gold in the same way his rival at the time, Shinsuke Nakamura,
managed. As part of CHAOS however, he held the NEVER Openweight Championship four times in a two year spell through 2017 and 2018. Through battles against
to a title he was dedicated to raising the status of.
Goto saw a challenging 2019, suffering a crushing defeat to Jay White in April, but one that sent him to the US to refocus and train with close friend Katsuyori Shibata.
That brought him a strong G1 CLimax campaign, and onto a collision course with KENTA, who had ended his own friendship with Shibata in violent form.
KENTA was now himself NEVER champion, and arrogantly taunted Goto through the winter, until revenge belonged to the Fierce Warrior at
Wrestle Kingdom 14, Goto picking up a record tying fifth Openweight Championship win.
