Osaka Pro Wrestling (2008-Present)Edit
Kazuaki Mihara came out of the Osaka Pro Wrestling classroom and debuted against fellow rookie Naoki Setoguchi in May 2008. Due to Setoguchi’s constant injuries, Mihara moved ahead of him and gained valuable experience not only in Osaka Pro, but in other organizations as well. In 2009 saw more growing pains for Mihara, but he slowly started to show progress in the fall, Mihara also debuted a alter ego named Yonhel Sanders, Johnel Sanders first appeared in Osaka Pro in April 2009, assisting Seikigun to defeat Tigers Mask’s Heel Army on a Holiday Paradise show. In Sanders’ debut, he was initially aligned with Tiger Mask’s Heel Army, but the storyline was that he was brainwashed.It took Seikigun’s efforts to turn him good again. He earned a spot in the annual Tennozan tournament and put up a good fight against Atsushi Kotoge in the first round. Unfortunately, his progress stalled in the spring of 2010 as he went down with a severe knee injury that kept him out for the rest of the year. Through extensive rehab, Mihara returned at the April 2011 IMP Hall show. He would compete in his first ever Osaka Tag Festival in June with Setoguchi as his partner, but they ended up with zero points. A new friendship with Shigehiro Irie started to develop due to both being around the same size and using green as their main color. Collectively known as the Green Bears, they received a shot at the Osaka Pro Tag Titles in February 2012. Mihara and Irie would team up again a few months later for the Osaka Tag Festival, but were eliminated by the Big Guns in the first round. In September 2012, he accompanied Takoyakida, Ebessan, Kikutaro, and referee Keigo Yoshino to America for CHIKARA’s King of Trios tournament he also made an appearance on Night 3 of CHIKARA’s King of Trios tournament. He took part in an 8 man comedy tag that’s been widely praised by comedy wrestling fans as Johnel Sanders. He ended up being picked randomly for a replacement team in the tournament on Night 1. Not coincidentally, Johnel Sanders appeared on Night 3 as a special guest star. In May 2013, Mihara won his first championship as he and Tadasuke captured the vacant Osaka Pro Tag Team Championship. It wasn’t without controversy as the two ended up cheating and using the help of Australian wrestler Mikey Broderick. Afterwards, the three were joined by Quiet Storm and formally announced that their group name was Bad Stream. Mihara has since developed quite the surly attitude and become more vicious in the ring. Mihara started off his career relatively skinny, but has bulked up considerably since. As a result, he likes to use his weight to his advantage. Mihara looks to be one of the future pillars in Osaka Pro. Mihara stop working as Kazuaki Mihara and on Osaka Pro he is still working as Johnel Sanders. On 2015, Kazuaki started to work as Shiro Kuma, even defeating on July 31 2017, Kuishinbo Kamen to win the Osaka Pro Wrestling Owarai Championship.
