He is known in Dramatic Dream Team (DDT) and around the micro-indy scene for his extensive use of comedy in his matches. He has his own brand in DDT named MUSCLE where he rarely produces.


Yoshihiro Saka started at his Dramatic Dream Team promotion, where he adopted the Muscle Sakai. Soon, however, Sakai would get injured would leave DDT to sign with HUSTLE. Since then Sakai would wrestle for the promotion until a year later he would return to DDT.
