Career Highlights:

Misawa and Ogawa started teaming in 1998 and to date they still haven't stopped. A mixture of power and craftiness, Misawa and Ogawa compliment each other perfectly. They began teaming in 1998, and even though they never won the World's Strongest Tag Team League they did win the All Japan World Tag Team Championship in August of 1999, holding the title for two months. When Misawa left to form NOAH, Ogawa joined him, and soon they would win the GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Championship from Scorpio and Vader. While the first reign was short, in January of 2004 they would hold the titles again and would have seven successful defenses. Since then they have not had any title success but still team together on a regular basis, making them one of the longest-running tag teams still active in Japan.
