2006 Recap:
Uwano became a regular in New Japan in 2006 thanks to his friendship with Riki Choshu. Uwano mainly stayed towards the bottom of the card as he earned his way up, battling young lions and wrestling in tag matches. He also teamed regularly with Ishii (another Riki Pro alum) as well as with Choshu himself. Towards the end of 2006 Uwano got the chance to wrestle in bigger tag matches against the likes of Nakamura and Chono, but he was almost always the one with his shoulders on the mat at the end of the match.

2007 Recap:
Besides occasionally rising up the card when teaming with Choshu, in general Uwano continued opening matches in 2007. While he tended to defeat the newest wrestlers Naito and Hirasawa, he failed to pick up any major victories over the core New Japan wrestlers. He did not participate in any of the tournaments and generally kept a low profile. His standing didn't change in 2007.
