2005 Recap:
Arriving in 2005, few showed the improvement in All Japan that Kondo did.  In is first year, he won the All Asia Tag Team Championship with YASSHI and then in October ended TAKA Michinoku's streak when he defeated him for the All Japan Jr. Heavyweight Championship without the help of the Voodoo Murderers.  Even though Kondo came in last in his bracket at the Champions Carnival, he had many solid matches (including one against Kojima) that showed what he was capable of to the All Japan fans.  Kondo is one of the brightest young stars of puroresu, and he has the ability to be a future champion.

2006 Recap:
Kondo had a number of successful defenses for his All Japan World Jr. Heavyweight Championship in 2006. MAZADA, AKIRA, Kaz Hayashi, and NOSAWA all fell to Kondo, and as the year ended he still held the title. Kondo also had a great (and close) match against Kojima in September, showing that he is more then a force in just the Jr. Heavyweight division.

2007 Recap:
2007 started off on a down note for Kondo, as he lost his All Japan World Jr. Heavyweight Championship to Katsuhiko Nakajima on February 17th. In the Jr. Heavyweight League, Kondo came in first place in his bracket as he defeated Katsuhiko Nakajima, Ryuji Hijikata, and El NOSAWA Mendoza. In the finals he faced off against Chris Sabin, but Sabin would come out victorious. Over in El Dorado, Kondo led the SUKIYAKI faction and they faced off throughout the year against Animal Planets. He also defeated Yasushi Tsujimoto in a Loser Must Disband match on August 9th. On the last tour of the year he ran through the new rookies, easily defeating Seiya Sanada and Manabu Soya.

2008 Recap:
Kondo failed to win any titles or tournaments in 2008 but he still had a very solid year. He started the year still part of the Voodoo Murderers, but in the fall he denounced his evil past and joined the All Japan Regular Army. In the Jr. Heavyweight League Kondo did well but ended in a massive tie for second place, missing the finals. Kondo teamed with Silver King, but they would come in 3rd place. At the November Sumo Hall event, he wrestled NOAH's Naomichi Marufuji for the All Japan Jr. Heavyweight Championship, but he would come up short. He also wrestled in the Real World Tag League with Suwama and the pair came in first place in the bracket, but they would fall to Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan in the finals.

2009 Recap:
A good year for Kondo even though he once again failed to win any titles. As the year started he was still teaming with Suwama, and the two challenged Suzuki and Kea for the All Japan World Tag Team Championships in the spring but came up short. Kondo took part in the Jr. Heavyweight League, and he won the tournament for the first time by defeating Super Crazy in the Finals. In the Jr. Heavyweight Tag League, Kondo teamed with Kaz Hayashi, and together they reached the finals but would lose to Minoru and Toshizo. His Jr. Heavyweight League win lead to him getting a chance at Hayashi's All Japan Jr. Heavyweight Championship at Sumo Hall on August 30th, but after an epic battle, Kondo would come up short. Kondo did not take part in the Real World Tag League and ended the year continuing to feud with the Voodoo Murderers.
