|Featured Signature Moves
Gedo had a successful year in 2005, teaming with Jado for many victories, and together they were considered one of the strongest junior heavyweight tag teams in Japan. Gedo proved that he was not just a tag wrestler, however, when he reached the finals of the Best of the Super Jr. Tournament. He and Jado also traveled to Mexico in the fall, having success until Jado was injured and they returned home early.
Part of one of the most dominate tag teams in Japan with Jado, Gedo continued to have success in 2006. For the first half of the year they were in a blood feud with Apache Army and even appeared on Apache Army shows to battle Kanemura, Kuroda, Sasaki, and others. At the Best of the Super Jr. Tournament, Gedo came in 4th place in his bracket but did manage a victory against Black Tiger. On July 8th, he and Jado defeated Taguchi and El Samurai for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. At the CTU show in July, Gedo teamed with Jado to defeat Kintaro Kanemura and Tetsuhiro Kuroda, continuing a string of successful matches against Apache Army. In the G1 Tag League, Gedo teamed with Jado, and the duo would pick up a key win over rivals Togi Makabe and Shiro Koshinaka when Gedo pinned Koshinaka.
Jado and Gedo continued to team together for all of 2007, first as part of CTU and then as part of GBH after CTU disbanded. Jado and Gedo entered the year as the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, but on May 2nd they would lose the titles to Dick Togo and TAKA Michinoku. In the Best of the Super Jr. Tournament, Gedo would pick up wins over Taguchi and El Samurai, but would fail to make the semi-finals. In the G1 Tag League Gedo teamed with Jado, and even though they didn't win they still picked up wins over Yuji Nagata and Manabu Nakanishi, Takashi Iizuka and Naofumi Yamamoto, and Masahiro Chono and Akebono.
In 2008, Jado and Gedo continued to anchor the Jr. Heavyweight tag team scene even though they did not win any championships. In the G1 Tag League, Jado and Gedo did well (including a big win over Manabu Nakanishi & Yutaka Yoshie), but they would miss the semi-finals. On December 7th they challenged NO LIMIT for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship, but they would come up short. For the rest of the year, Gedo mostly helped Makabe and his other faction team mates win matches.
As part of CHAOS in 2009, Gedo continued teaming with his partner in crime Jado for the year. Usually wrestling in mid-card matches, the pair kept a lower profile since they were in such a large faction but they did get involved in many of their faction mate's matches. Gedo did not take part in the Best of the Super Jr. Tournament, but did wrestle in the Super J Cup where he defeated Kota Ibushi in the first round but lost to YAMATO in the second round.
While both Gedo and Jado continued working backstage setting up the matches for New Japan in 2010, they also remained active in the ring as two of the troublemakers of CHAOS. Gedo participated in the Best of the Super Jr. Tournament but did not do very well, as he only picked up one win in the tournament which was a forfeit victory over Tiger Mask. On September 26th, Gedo and Jado challenged Apollo55 for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship, but the pair would come up short.
In November, Gedo and Jado teamed together and won the Super J Tag League, defeating Davey Richards and Rocky Romero in the Finals.
