All-time Career of Hirooki Goto

New Japan Pro Wrestling

Junior heavyweight (2003–2005)

Goto was eligible to sign with New Japan Pro Wrestling after graduating, but he left the organization due to a shoulder injury. After receiving medical attention, he rejoined NJPW in November 2002 and started training in the organization’s dojo. On July 6, 2003, he made his wrestling debut in Gifu against Ryusuke Taguchi. The two wrestlers, who competed in the junior heavyweight division, teamed up in the same year to attempt to win the vacant IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship in a competition. However, they were defeated in the final by seasoned competitors Gedo and Jado, who made their professional debut in 1989.

He won the NJPW Young Lion Cup at the beginning of 2005 by defeating Hiroyuki It in the competition’s finale. Goto took on the ring name “C.T.U Ranger Red” after turning heel and joining Jushin Thunder Liger’s “Control Terrorism Unit” (“C.T.U.”) unit. On May 15, 2005, he and Minoru defeated Koji Kanemoto and Wataru Inoue in the Tokyo Dome to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship, giving him his first title. The team held the titles for nine months before falling to Ryusuke Taguchi and El Samurai in Tokyo on February 19, 2006.

Foreign excursion (2006–2007)

Goto joined the American Total Nonstop Action Wrestling promotion in 2006 as a member of Team Japan, one of the four teams competing in the TNA 2006 World X Cup Tournament. Team Japan was made up of CTU members Goto, Jushin Thunder Liger, Black Tiger, and Minoru. On April 23, 2006, at Lockdown, he made his TNA debut in a team match with Black Tiger and Minoru against Sonjay Dutt, Jay Lethal, and Alex Shelley of Team USA. When Black Tiger defeated Lethal, Team Japan defeated the USA. On the TNA Impact! episode from April 27, 2006! On May 14, 2006, at Sacrifice, Goto and the other members of Team Japan accompanied Liger to ringside, helping him in his victory over Team Canada captain Petey Williams. However, Goto and Minoru lost to Dutt and Shelley, giving a first-round victory and two points to Team USA. Later that evening, Petey Williams, the captain of Team Canada, defeated Team Japan’s four competitors in a gauntlet match. Team USA (with five points) won the 2006 World X Cup, with Team Japan finishing last (with three points).

Goto left for a protracted study trip to Mexico on August 1, 2006, after losing in a farewell match at the CTU 2nd Anniversary Show. He mainly competed while in Mexico for Ultimo Dragon’s Toryumon Mexico and the Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre. He established a rudo unit in the CMLL while he was living in Mexico with Hajime Ohara and Shigeo Okumura.

RISE (2007–2009)

Goto left Mexico in August 2007 and arrived back in New Japan almost exactly a year later. When he came back, the much more muscular Goto made the transition from junior heavyweight to heavyweight. Since being last seen in July 2006, Goto has demonstrated a great deal of promise and talent. He displayed an entirely new move set and quickly aimed to become one of New Japan’s top heavyweights. With Shinsuke Nakamura, Travis Tomko, Giant Bernard, and other ex-CTU team members Minoru, Milano Collection AT, and Prince Devitt, Goto joined the Stable “RISE” not long after making his return. He faced Hiroshi Tanahashi on November 11 in a match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, which Tanahashi ultimately won with the Texas Cloverleaf. Soon after, Goto and Milano Collection AT competed in the 2007 G1 Tag League, but the team came in third.

Goto competed against The Great Muta, one of his idols from childhood, in 2008 at the New Japan annual January 4th Tokyo Dome Show. Despite his strong performance, Goto would lose to Muta.

Goto joined Shinsuke Nakamura’s RISE faction in 2008, and his progress was positive during that year. But contrary to everyone’s predictions, he unexpectedly won New Japan’s prestigious G1 Climax in August. Goto finished Block B tied for first with Nakamura with 8 points, but he moved on to the championship match thanks to a decisive victory over the former IWGP champion and RISE leader. When Goto encountered Togi Makabe in the final, he overcame interference from the outside and blood loss to defeat the GBH faction’s leader and pin him with the Shouten.

Goto won the 2009 New Japan Cup in March 2009 after defeating Giant Bernard, Karl Anderson, Shinsuke Nakamura, Yuji Nagata, and Yuji Nakamura. He also earned a shot at Hiroshi Tanahashi’s IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Tanahashi defeated Goto on May 3, 2009, at Wrestling Dontaku 2009, to keep the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

Tournament wins (2010–2013)

At Wrestle Kingdom IV in the Tokyo Dome on January 4, 2010, Takashi Sugiura triumphantly defended his GHC Heavyweight Championship against Goto. Goto won the New Japan Cup in March after defeating Yujiro Takahashi, Masato Tanaka, and Togi Makabe. On April 4, Goto went on to face off against IWGP Heavyweight Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, but he was unsuccessful in his bid to capture the championship. On June 28, 2010, Goto entered the J Sports Crown Openweight 6-Man Tag Tournament with the help of Prince Devitt and Ryusuke Taguchi. The group won the competition two days later by defeating Hiroshi Tanahashi, TAJIRI, and KUSHIDA in the finals. Goto defeated former IWGP Heavyweight Champions Yuji Nagata and Shinsuke Nakamura by pinfall during the G1 Climax in August. However, a loss to eventual G1 winner Satoshi Kojima on the final day of the tournament dropped him to fourth place in his block, narrowly keeping him out of the finals. Goto’s victory over Shinsuke Nakamura on October 11 earned him the right to contend for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Satoshi Kojima, the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion, overruled the decision of the contest and chose Nakamura as his first opponent for the title. Kojima successfully defended his title against Nakamura on December 11, but Goto’s attempt to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship was thwarted by a defeat to Hiroshi Tanahashi on the same day. Goto’s dream of being the main event of Wrestle Kingdom V in the Tokyo Dome was crushed when Kojima defeated him the following day in a non-title match. Instead, Goto and the returning Kazuchika Okada competed in a tag team match where they were defeated by Yoshihiro Takayama and Takashi Sugiura from Pro Wrestling NOAH. Goto started his quest to win the New Japan Cup on March 6, but Shinsuke Nakamura defeated him in the opening round. Goto turned heel on March 20, the last day of the competition, when he deserted IWGP Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi in the middle of a tag team match against Satoshi Kojima and MVP. Before departing for his second trip to Mexico, this was Goto’s last appearance in New Japan.

In a match on April 29 at Arena México’s 55th anniversary show, Goto unsuccessfully challenged ltimo Guerrero for the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship in a Two Out of Three Falls match. Goto made his return to CMLL on March 25 and worked for the promotion for the following month as a heel. On May 3, Goto won a tag team match against Takashi Sugiura and Makoto Hashi with Tama Tonga after making his return to New Japan. After Hiroshi Tanahashi had successfully defended the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura later in the event, Goto attacked Tanahashi and declared war on him. On June 18, 2011, Goto would lose his attempt to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship once more. After the match, it appeared that Goto and Tanahashi had reconciled, with Tanahashi suggesting that they team up to compete for the IWGP Tag Team Championship. On June 23, Goto, Prince Devitt, and Ryusuke Taguchi defeated Giant Bernard, Jushin Thunder Liger, and Karl Anderson in the three-day tournament championship match to win their second consecutive J Sports Crown Openweight 6 Man Tag Tournament. Goto and Tanahashi failed in their attempt to unseat Giant Bernard and Karl Anderson as the IWGP Tag Team Champions on July 3. Goto competed in the 2011 G1 Climax on August 1. He won six of his nine matches there, but a defeat to Strong Man on the last day of the competition dropped him to second place in his block and prevented him from reaching the tournament’s finals. Goto and Hiroshi Tanahashi competed together as “The Billion Powers” in the 2011 G1 Tag League. Goto and Tanahashi defeated the Beast Combination (Satoshi Kojima and Togi Makabe) on November 4 to advance to the tournament semifinals after they had won two and lost two of their first four matches in the group stage. On November 6, Bad Intentions defeated Goto and Tanahashi in the semifinals to end their tournament run. Goto unsuccessfully contested Masato Tanaka for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship on November 12 at Power Struggle. Goto rekindled his rivalry with Takashi Sugiura of Pro Wrestling Noah on January 4, 2012, at Wrestle Kingdom VI in the Tokyo Dome, and triumphed over him in a singles contest.

Masato Tanaka was defeated by Goto on February 12 at The New Beginning, and Goto thus became the first person to hold the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. On March 11, Goto won his first title defense against Yujiro Takahashi. Goto entered the 2012 New Japan Cup on April 1. Goto defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi in the tournament’s championship match on April 8 to win it for the third time and earn another shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Championship after victories over Yujiro Takahashi, La Sombra, and Togi Makabe. Goto unsuccessfully contested Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship on May 3 at Wrestling Dontaku 2012. Goto defeated Tomohiro Ishii on May 20 in his second successful defense of the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. Goto’s third defense of the title ended on July 22 when Shinsuke Nakamura defeated him. Goto received a title rematch at King of Pro-Wrestling on October 8, but Nakamura once more prevailed. Goto unsuccessfully challenged Kazuchika Okada for the opportunity to compete for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at the Tokyo Dome on November 11 at Power Struggle. Goto and Karl Anderson competed as “Sword & Guns” in the round-robin portion of the 2012 World Tag League from November 20 to December 1. The group finished with a record of four victories and two defeats, placing second in their block and moving on to the tournament semifinals. Goto and Anderson defeated Tencozy (Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Satoshi Kojima) on December 2 to advance to the tournament’s finals, where they later that day defeated K.E.S (Davey Boy Smith, Jr. and Lance Archer), the current IWGP Tag Team Champions, to win the event. On January 4, 2013, at Wrestle Kingdom 7 in the Tokyo Dome, Sword & Guns were given the opportunity to compete for the IWGP Tag Team Championship, but were defeated by K.E.S in a rematch.

Storyline with Katsuyori Shibata (2013–2015)

Goto issued a challenge to former high school classmate Katsuyori Shibata in February 2013, which resulted in a tag team contest on February 10 in which Shibata and Kazushi Sakuraba defeated Goto and Wataru Inoue. Following the match, Goto and Shibata got into a heated argument that set up their upcoming singles match. Goto lost to Kazuchika Okada in the New Japan Cup finals in March after once more reaching that stage. On May 3 at Wrestling Dontaku 2013, Goto and Shibata finally squared off in a singles match that resulted in a draw. On June 22 at Dominion 6.22, the two engaged in a rematch, with Shibata emerging victorious. On July 20, they played a third game, which also ended in a draw. Early in August, Goto took part in the G1 Climax. On August 8, it was discovered that Goto had a fractured jaw and had been removed from the competition. When he was yanked from the G1, he was leading the A block with four wins (including a significant victory over IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada) and two losses, and he still had three matches to play.

On December 8, Goto made a comeback and challenged Katsuyori Shibata to a wrestling contest at Wrestle Kingdom 8 in the Tokyo Dome. Goto won his rematch against Shibata on January 4, 2014. The contest put an end to Goto and Shibata’s rivalry and sparked their union as a tag team. The following day, Goto defeated CHAOS by pinfall in the main event of an eight-man tag team match. He then issued a challenge to Kazuchika Okada to compete for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Goto was given a seventh chance to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship on February 11 at The New Beginning in Osaka but failed to do so. Following their victory over the current champions, Bullet Club (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson), in a non-title match at New Japan’s 42nd-anniversary event on March 6, Goto and Shibata entered the IWGP Tag Team Championship picture. At Invasion Attack 2014, they were given the opportunity to win the championship, but Gallows and Anderson defeated them. Goto competed in the 2014 G1 Climax from July 21 to August 8 and finished with a record of four victories and six defeats. On August 10, Goto and Shibata engaged in another singles match, which Shibata won. The match took place during the tournament’s final event. Then Goto entered a plot and began organizing a defense against the Bullet Club and CHAOS forces in an effort to revive the New Japan Seikigun (literally, “regular army”), which he represented alongside people like Shibata and Hiroshi Tanahashi. Goto was given his first opportunity to win the NEVER Openweight Championship on November 8 at Power Struggle, but Tomohiro Ishii defeated him. Later on in the month, Goto and Shibata made their debut in the 2014 World Tag League. After losing their first three matches, they recovered to win their next four matches, taking their block and moving on to the finals. Goto and Shibata won the 2014 World Tag League on December 7 by defeating Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson in the championship match. The two teams met again on January 4, 2015, at Wrestle Kingdom 9 in the Tokyo Dome, where Goto and Shibata triumphed over Anderson and Gallows to win the IWGP Tag Team Championship. The reign of Goto and Shibata came to an end on February 11 at The New Beginning in Osaka when Anderson and Gallows defeated them in their first defense.

In a match that took place on March 8 in the second round of the 2015 New Japan Cup, Goto prevailed over Shibata. On March 15, Goto eventually advanced to the competition’s championship round but lost to Kota Ibushi. Goto defeated Shinsuke Nakamura on May 3 at Wrestling Dontaku 2015 to win the IWGP Intercontinental Championship a second time. On July 5 at Dominion 7.5 in Osaka-jo Hall, Goto successfully defended his first championship by triumphing over Nakamura in a rematch. The 2015 G1 Climax was held from July 23 to August 15, and Goto participated. Goto entered the final day with a chance to overcome his block after six wins, one of which came against the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada. However, Goto was eliminated after he suffered his third loss of the competition against Yuji Nagata. Goto returned to the United States on August 21 and competed with Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe in a six-man tag team match, winning over Okada, Beretta, and Rocky Romero thanks to NJPW’s collaboration with the Ring of Honor (ROH) promotion. On September 27 at Destruction in Kobe, Goto’s Intercontinental Championship reign came to an end when he lost to Shinsuke Nakamura in a subsequent title match.

CHAOS (2016–present)

Goto received his eighth opportunity to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship after defeating Tetsuya Naito on January 4, 2016, at Wrestle Kingdom 10 in the Tokyo Dome. However, he once again fell short, losing to the reigning champion Kazuchika Okada on February 11 at The New Beginning in Osaka. Goto donned new clothing, painted his body white, and covered himself in a script before the fight. Okada made Goto an offer to join the CHAOS stable after the match. Okada repeatedly approached Goto over the course of the subsequent events to shake his hand and persuade him to join CHAOS, but he was rejected each time. Goto reached the 2016 New Japan Cup finals in March but Tetsuya Naito defeated him there. After the decisive match, Goto joined CHAOS and saved Okada from a post-match attack by Naito and his Los Ingobernables de Japón stable. As a result, Goto finally agreed to shake hands with Okada. Goto competed in the round-robin portion of the 2016 G1 Climax from July 18 to August 12, winning his block and defeating both Hiroshi Tanahashi and the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada. On August 14, Goto was defeated by Kenny Omega in the finals. At the end of the year, Goto competed in the 2016 World Tag League with Chaos stablemate Tomohiro Ishii.

Goto won the NEVER Openweight Championship for the first time on January 4, 2017, at Wrestle Kingdom 11 in the Tokyo Dome, defeating Katsuyori Shibata. On February 5, at The New Beginning in Sapporo, against Juice Robinson, Goto made his first successful title defense. At the NJPW and ROH-produced Honor Rising: Japan 2017 event, where he defeated Punisher Martinez of the ROH wrestling organization, he made his second defense. In spite of interference from Sabre’s Suzuki-gun stablemates Minoru Suzuki and El Desperado, Goto defeated Zack Sabre Jr. on April 9 at Sakura Genesis 2017. Goto then got into a fight with Suzuki, setting up his upcoming title defense. On April 27, Goto lost the NEVER Openweight Championship to Suzuki. On June 11 at Dominion 6.11 in Osaka-jo Hall, he failed to reclaim the title in a rematch against Suzuki in a Lumberjack Deathmatch. The following month, Goto entered the 2017 G1 Climax, where he finished with a record of five wins and four losses, failing to advance from his block. At the end of the year, Goto teamed with Yoshi-Hashi in the 2017 World Tag League. Finishing with a record of four wins and three losses, the team failed to qualify for the finals, after losing to EVIL and SANADA in their final round-robin match. On January 4, 2018, Goto defeated Minoru Suzuki in a Hair vs. Hair match to win the NEVER Openweight Championship, forcing Suzuki to have his head shaved bald. He lost the title to Michael Elgin on June 9 at Dominion 6.9 in Osaka-jo Hall, before regaining it on June 17 at Kizuna Road. Goto competed in the 2018 G1 Climax from July 14 through August 11; he finished the competition with a record of three victories and seven defeats and was unable to reach the tournament’s championship round. Goto was defeated by Taichi on September 17 at Destruction in Beppu due to interference from his Suzuki-gun stablemates. Goto challenged Taichi to a rematch while the Road to Power Struggle tour was in progress, but Taichi declined. Despite his refusal, NJPW gave Goto the opportunity to face Taichi for the championship in place of the injured Will Ospreay, a member of the CHAOS stable. Goto regained the NEVER Openweight Championship by defeating Taichi in a rematch on November 3 at Power Struggle. On December 9, Kota Ibushi won the championship from Goto. Goto competed in the 2019 G1 Climax from July 6 through August 11; he finished the competition with a record of five wins and four losses, missing out on the tournament’s finals because of his defeat to Shingo Takagi in their head-to-head match.

Goto and Karl Fredericks competed in the 2019 World Tag League from November 16 through December 8; they finished last in the competition with a record of three wins and twelve losses. Following that, Goto and KENTA got into a fight. After Goto’s matches in the 2019 World Tag League, KENTA started routinely making fun of him, which prompted Goto to attack him on November 29. Goto assaulted KENTA, but he didn’t stop making fun of him, and on December 8 he attacked KENTA once more. The next day at a press conference, Goto angered KENTA by questioning his in-ring prowess, which prompted KENTA to repay the favor by attacking him. Goto defeated KENTA to win the NEVER Openweight Championship for a fifth time on January 5, 2020, the second night of Wrestle Kingdom 14 in the Tokyo Dome. On February 1 at The New Beginning in Sapporo, Shingo Takagi defeated him for the championship. Goto competed in the 2020 New Japan Cup in June; EVIL eliminated him from the competition in the second round. Goto, Ishii, and Yoshi-Hashi won the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship on August 9 by defeating fellow CHAOS stablemates Kazuchika Okada, Toru Yano, and Sho in the competition’s final match. Goto competed in the 2020 G1 Climax from September 19 through October 17, finishing the competition with a record of four wins and five losses and failing to reach the tournament’s finals. Goto and Toru Yano’s match, which lasted 18 seconds, broke the previous record of 37 seconds held by Kenzo Suzuki and Tadao Yasuda in the 2002 tournament for the shortest match ever played in the history of the competition.

Goto and Yoshi-Hashi competed in the 2020 World Tag League from November 15 to December 6; they finished the competition with a record of five victories and four defeats, failing to advance to the tournament’s finals. Goto competed in the 2021 New Japan Cup in March, falling to eventual champion Shingo Takagi on March 13 in the second round. Goto competed in the 2021 G1 Climax from September 19 to October 20, finishing with a record of three wins and six losses and failing to advance to the tournament’s finals. Before losing the titles to House of Torture (EVIL, Sho, and Yujiro Takahashi) on November 6 at Power Struggle, Goto, Ishii, and Yoshi-Hashi would set records for the longest reign as champions (454 days) and the most successful title defenses (9 defenses). Goto and Yoshi-Hashi competed in the round-robin portion of the 2021 World Tag League from November 14 to December 12. With a final record of nine victories and two defeats, the team qualified for the competition’s championship game. Goto and Yoshi-Hashi won the 2021 World Tag League on December 15 by defeating EVIL and Yujiro Takahashi in the championship match. Goto and Yoshi-Hashi won the IWGP Tag Team Championship on January 4, 2022, the opening night of Wrestle Kingdom 16. They did this by defeating Taichi and Zack Sabre Jr. At Hyper Battle on April 9, they were defeated by Great-O-Khan and Jeff Cobb for the titles. Goto, Yoshi-Hashi, and Yoh won the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship on July 5 by defeating EVIL, Sho, and Yujiro Takahashi. Goto competed in the 2022 G1 Climax from July 20 to August 16, finishing the competition with a record of three wins and three losses and failing to reach the semifinals. On September 23, in a Tornado Dog Cage Survival match, Goto, Yoshi-Hashi, and Yoh lost the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship back to EVIL, Sho, and Yujiro Takahashi. Goto and Yoshi-Hashi competed in the 2022 World Tag League from November 22 through December 14 and finished the competition with a record of seven wins and two losses, making it to the tournament’s championship match. Goto and Yoshi-Hashi became the fifth team in World Tag League history to win the tournament in back-to-back years on December 14 when they defeated Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis) in the competition’s final match.

Goto and Yoshi-Hashi defeated FTR (Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood) on January 4, 2023 at Wrestle Kingdom 17 in the Tokyo Dome to win the IWGP Tag Team Championship for the second time. In their third title defense, they were defeated by Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis) on April 8 at Sakura Genesis.
