It was just 30 seconds that Naito was scold at first time in NJPW Dojo


NJPWWorld has NJPW documentary series. There are inside stories of Hiroshi Tanahashi, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kazuchika Okada, and YOSHI-HASHI. and latest series is about Tetsuya Naito. He talks about his life, and his father also appeared & talked about his son.

What I am impressed the most is the story about his first day of NJPW. He passed NJPW Tryout in 2005. And when he first went to in NJPW dormitory, he met Yoshitatsu. Yoshi said to Naito "I am the head of this dormitory.". Naito thought "Wow! he is Yamamoto!(is real name of Yoshi)". Of course he know Yoshi because he was big fan of NJPW.

Then he met Togi Makabe. Makabe said to Naito "Hey, what is your hairstyle?". Makabe was angry. As you know, the hairstyle of Young Lion should be buzz-cut. But at that time Naito had long hair. He knew Young Lion should shave their hair, but he thought somebody shave after he enter the dormitory. He said Makabe was really scary. He wanted to run away.

In this documentary, Naito visited Animal Hamaguchi Gym where he trained before entering NJPW. Animal Hamaguchi Gym is the best prowrestling school in Japan. They made a lot of famous prowrestlers like Michiyoshi Ohara, Shinjiro Otani, Satoshi Kojima, Takao Omori, Wataru Inoue, Tomoaki Honma, YOSHI-HASHI, Shingo Takagi, Takaaki Watanabe and more. He was raised by great wrestling school and Dojo.
