Professional Wrestling CarrerEdit

Toryumon (2000-2003)Edit

In December 2000, Takashi debuted in Toryumon Mexico under the name TARUcito, a smaller and lighter version TARU. Initially struggling just in comedy combat, TARUcito was then sent to Toryumon 2000 Project (T2P), where he attended TARU in his feud with Kinya Oyanagi. Despite the mixed results of this confrontation, Nomura was made a member of the group Crazy MAX (CIMA, SUWA and Don Fujii), which TARU belonged, and became thier manager. At the end of 2002, after the close of T2P, Nomura retired from professional wrestling.

Later, in 2003, TARUcito made his return, appearing in Toryumon X, as a member of Mini Crazy MAX (Mini CIMA, SUWAcito and Small Dandy Fujii). However, shortly after Nomura retired from wrestling again and was replaced by a second TARUcito, Yasuhiko Dogan, which did not make his debut in Toryumon.
