Featured Signature Moves
Firebird Splash

Front Flip Piledriver


Debuting in March of 2007 along with Sanada, T28 proved to be the more flashy of the two as he showed off a variety of high risk moves including the Firebird Splash. T28 got his first pinfall victory in May against Sanada, and for the remainder of the year he showed strength against the veterans while occasionally racking up wins against his other dojo mates. T28 continued growing in 2008 as he tried to climb up the ladder in the Jr. Heavyweight division. In the All Japan Jr. Heavyweight League he came in tied for last place in his block, and only picked up a victory over TAKEMURA. He also took part in the Jr. Tag League, teaming with KUSHIDA, but the duo would come in 5th place in their bracket. He spent much of the year wrestling in tag matches as he continued learning from the veterans of All Japan. In November it was announced that T28 would be leaving for Mexico on an excursion, wrestling for IWRG. T28 wrestled in IWRG for the entire year of 2009. Wrestling as Tetsuya Bushi, T28 won the IWRG Intercontinental Lightweight Championship on two occasions. While he wrestled under a mask during his stint, on December 3rd he lost his match to Oficial 911. Soon after he returned to All Japan, but after having limited success there he joined New Japan Pro Wrestling in 2012.
