Shingo Takagi joins NJPW at King of Pro Wrestling


The new pareja of Los Ingobernables de Japon is none other than new free agent Shingo Takagi.

The former Dragon Gate star made his debut tonight during King of Pro Wrestling, the fourth man in a eight man tag team match pitting CHAOS members against LIJ. After teasing that the partner might be Milano Collection AT at ringside, Tetsuya Naito introduced their partner, who was introduced as The Dragon. Takagi, who was under a LIJ mask,  then revealed himself to a huge pop. They went on to win their match against Roppongi 3K, Toru Yano and Kazuchika Okada when Takagi pinned SHO with the Last Falconry, which is now called the Last of the Dragon.

Takagi announced last month that he would be going freelance, with his last date as a full roster member of Dragon Gate being on 10/7. In his final match with the promotion, he lost to BxB Hulk in a singles bout. 

In Dragon Gate, he held the Open the Dream Gate four times and the Open the Triangle Gate six times with various stablemates over the years.
