History[edit | edit source]

On December 22, 2017, Maybach Taniguchi turned on Naomichi Marufuji during a GHC Tag Team Championship match against 50 Funky Powers (Muhammad Yone and Quiet Storm), and aligned himself with Mitsuya Nagai, effectively ending Maketa Ra Owari. Meanwhile, Cody Hall and Kazma Sakamoto also formed a team. On June 21, 2018, Taniguchi and Hall took part in a three-way match with Masao Inoue, where Taniguchi and Hall attacked Inoue, forming an alliance, which subsequently were joined by Sakamoto. On September 2, Hall, Nagai, Taniguchi and Sakamoto named their stable "Hooligans" and afterwards defeated junior heavyweights RATEL'S (Daisuke Harada, HAYATA, Tadasuke and YO-HEY) in an eight-man tag team match. Seven days later, Hall and Taniguchi challenged Akitoshi Saito and Naomichi Marufuji to a match for their GHC Tag Team Championship titles. Hall and Taniguchi received their title shot on October 14 unsuccessfully challenging Saito and Marufuji for the GHC Tag Team Championship. On December 7, Yuji Hino joined as the fifth member of the stable. Later that night, Hino and Taniguchi challenged newly crowned GHC Tag Team Champions Katsuhiko Nakajima and Go Shiozaki for their titles, leading to Hino and Taniguchi defeating them to win the GHC Tag Team Championship on December 16 at Great Voyage in Yokohama vol.2. On February 1, 2019 Taniguchi and Hino lost the titles to Muhammad Yone and Quiet Storm. After the match they were challenged by Takashi Sugiura and Akitoshi Saito in a match if they win Hooligans would have to disband but if they win Sugiura would have to join them. On February 24, 2019 they lost to Sugiura, Saito and Masao Inoue, Yoshiki Inamura and Kinya Okada forcing them to disband.
