Komatsu says that he has been a fan of professional wrestling from an early age of 3 years old and has aspired to become a professional since first year in junior high school.
His very early memories of watching pro wrestling was with Keiji Mutoh. He would see his first live show when he was 5-6 years old. Komatsu’s experience’s with sports was baseball and even Judo in his later years, and then some amateur wrestling in high school and college to help better prepare himself to tryout to be a professional.
Komatsu has been training in the Dojo since being accepted in May of 2011 and was originally hoping to debut in March of this year, but was held off to better fine tune his talents. Komatsu is the sole survivor from his initial class of 3 and has shown to be a strong talent in the making.
An interesting goal for Komatsu was mentioned that he is looking to one day become a masked wrestler, as he enjoys the style of Lucha Libre and has been taking a liking to BUSHI who is competing in NJPW for this year.
His goal is to become IWGP Champion, and he hopes the fans will cheer for him to accomplish his dreams.
