Early life

Professional wrestling career

New Japan Pro Wrestling (2016–present)

In March 2016, Umino began training under NJPW's "young lion" system. After one year of training, Umino made his debut on April 13, 2017, at Lion's Gate Project 4 losing to Taka Michinoku. As is customary for most professional wrestlers as young lions, Umino spent most of his matches losing to other, more experienced wrestlers, which would help put over other wrestlers while at the same time give Umino some in-ring, televised, experience. Umino competed in the 11th Young Lion Cup, finishing the tournament with a record of two wins and three losses, failing to win the tournament. On June 30, 2018, Umino compete for the first time outside of Japan working in NJPW and Revolution Pro Wrestling show, Strong Style Evolved UK in England losing to Great O-Kharn. From November 17 until November 7, Umino competed in the 2019 World Tag League teaming with Ayato Yoshida, losing all of their matches in the tournament. In March 2019, Umino took part in the 2019 New Japan Cup losing to Hiroshi Tanahashi in the first round.
