Hirayanagi (standing only 5'6") debuted in late 2005 and did not manage any wins before the end of the year, as to be expected for a rookie.
In February, Hirayanagi picked up his first victory (over Ota), but a month later he got a serious jaw injury against SUWA during a SEM event. Hirayanagi would miss a few months, but he did return by the end of 2006 and went back to wrestling on SEM and opening cards. Due to his missed time he is a bit behind his other dojo mates, but expect him to catch back up soon.
Hirayanagi continued to make progress in 2007 but had trouble catching up to his other dojo mates due to his lost time. In the Mauritius Cup, Hirayanagi defeated Ippei Ota but lost to Ishimori, Aoki, Taniguchi, and Ito. In the last event of the year he was pinned in the opener, showing that he still has a ways to go before climbing higher on the card.
Hirayanagi set himself apart from his other former dojo mates as he took on a more heel persona in 2009. While he did not challenge for any titles, he kept his name out there with antics that gave fans something to remember when they left the show. He did not get any points in the Jr. Heavyweight League and in the Jr. Tag League he also got no points as he teamed with Kikutaro. In 2010, Hirayanagi will look to add some in-ring success to match his new in-ring techniques.
