Career Highlights:

In 1992, Animal of the Road Warriors suffered what was considered at the time a career-ending back injury, and Hawk Warrior went to Japan to form a new tag team. He would find young Kensuke Sasaki, and after a quick transformation he became Power Warrior and The Hellraisers were born. They would dominate the tag team scene in New Japan, as they held the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship from December 1992 to August 1993. They would hold the titles a second time in 1994, defeating Norton and Hernandez in January and holding the titles until November when they would lose it to Mutoh and Hase. After losing the titles, they would continue teaming through 1995 and even had another title shot in September of 1995, but they would lose to Shinya Hashimoto and Junji Hirata. By the end of 1995, Kensuke Sasaki had dropped the Power Warrior persona and Hawk would begin teaming with Animal in WCW.
