Professional wrestling career[edit | edit source]
Toryumon (2002-2004)[edit | edit source]
A former judoka and amateur wrestler, Taiji Ishimori was trained in Toryumon Mexico and debuted against Fumiyuki Hashimoto in 2002. He went to compete in the Young Dragons Cup and won after beating Jun Ogawauchi, Henry III Sugawara, and lastly Condotti Shuji. Shortly after, he was given a pop idol gimmick and formed a boy band-like faction with Kei and Shu Sato, calling themselves the Sailor Boys. Ishimori was intended to become the "ace" (the top student) of his graduating class, even going so far as to release an album, "Keep in Journey", to support their gimmick. However, the fan interest never matched his hype, and Ishimori became one of Toryumon's bigger failures. Sailor Boys' rival faction, Los Salseros Japoneses (Takeshi Minamino, Pineapple Hanai, and Mango Fukuda) was in turn more successful with the fans. While in the Toryumon X brand, Sailor Boys also feuded with Mini Crazy MAX (Mini CIMA, SUWAcito, and Small Dandy Fujii), defeating them in X's debut show.
Unlike the rest of his class, Taiji did his Japanese debut for All Japan Pro Wrestling's Wrestle-1 project. Returning to Mexico, he won the UWA World Welterweight Championship on May 11, 2003, defeating Super Crazy to win the belt. Ishimori defended the UWA World Welterweight Championship two times, against Fuerza Guerrera on August 31, 2003, and against YOSSINO on December 7, 2003. He dropped the UWA championship to Takeshi Minamino on August 29, 2004. He tried to regain the title in the Dragon Fire The Final Challenge event, but it was unsuccessful. Also, at the last Toryumon X show, Sailor Boys challenged Gedo, Jado, and Katsushi Takemura for the UWA World Trios Championship, but they were defeated.
HUSTLE (2004-2005)[edit | edit source]
Like the rest of Toryumon X's wrestlers, Ishimori made some appearances in HUSTLE under various masked characters, almost always as an opponent of HUSTLE Kamen Rangers.
New Japan Pro Wrestling (2004–2005, 2016)[edit | edit source]
Following the title loss, Ishimori began working for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) as one of their "Young Lions" prospects. Very early in his NJPW run, he was teamed up with Hiroshi Tanahashi for a one night U-30 (Under 30) tag team tournament. In the first round, the team defeated Blue Wolf and Katsuhiko Nakajima and in the finals, they defeated Ryusuke Taguchi and Shinsuke Nakamura to win the tournament. At one point he teamed up with his mentor Ultimo Dragon for an unsuccessful shot at the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship, held by Gedo and Jado at the time. By mid-2005 Taiji Ishimori had left NJPW and begun working for All Japan Pro Wrestling.
On July 20, 2016, Ishimori returned to NJPW to take part in 2016 Super J-Cup tournament. However he was eliminated from the tournament in the first round by Kushida. After winning the NTV G+ Cup Junior Heavyweight Tag League with ACH, Ishimori and ACH challenged for GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship against the team of Daisuke Harada and Atsushi Kotoge at Super J-Cup Final event on August 21, where the champions retained the title.
On October 21 at Road to Power Struggle event, Ishimori and ACH entered the 2016 Super Junior Tag Tournament. They advanced to the next round after defeating the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks in the first round. After defeating David Finlay and Ricochet in the semifinals on October 30, Ishimori and ACH were defeated in the finals of the tournament by Roppongi Vice (Beretta and Rocky Romero) on November 5.
DragonDoor (2005-2006)[edit | edit source]
In mid-2005, Ishimori was hired by DragonDoor a company created with the approval of Toryumon by unhappy wrestlers with Dragon Gate. As in Toryumon X, Taiji was chosen as the main face of the promotion, leading a group formed by Kota Ibushi, Little Dragon, Milanito Collection at and Venezia to oppose the group heel Aagan Iisou Shuji Kondo, "brother" YASSHI, Takuya Sugawara, Toru Owashi and Shogo Takagi). However, again as in Toryumon, Ishimori was not able to connect with the fans, and on the contrary, it was Aagan Iisou who got all the support of the public. After participating with Ibushi in the Aquamarine Cup Tag Tournament unsuccessfully, Ishimori turned his attention to KAGETORA and his group STONED (Kei Sato, Shu Sato, and Manjimaru), who had attacked Ishimori and Dragon in a match. However, due to the disruption of the company's sponsorship, Dragondoor closed soon after all wrestlers were released from their contracts.
All Japan Pro Wrestling (2005-2006)[edit | edit source]
In August 2005, Ishimori debuted in AJPW teaming with Keiji Mutoh. They, along with Kaz Hayashi, Satoshi Kojima, and other face wrestlers, feuded with the villainous Voodoo Murders group. Ishimori also started teaming with another former NJPW rookie, Katsuhiko Nakajima, eventually taking part in the AJPW 2006 Junior Tag League. Together they defeated Kikujiro (Nobutaka Araya) & Kikutaro and Akira & Ryuji Hijikata, but they passed without achieving much success. Ended the league, Ishimori left All Japan.
El Dorado Wrestling (2006)[edit | edit source]
In April 2006, Ishimori became part of El Dorado Wrestling, the new incarnation of DragonDoor. Ishimori, was the leader of the same group in which DragonDoor happened to be with El Blazer and Venezia was replaced by Jumping Kid Okimoto and fought against Aagan Iisou and STONED during the first events of the company, but shortly after, during the establishment of the roles of face and heel in El Dorado, Ishimori publicly renounced his status of ace and stopped appearing in the company to wrestle in Pro Wrestling NOAH. Despite losing his leader, Ishimori's group went ahead without him until the next season of promotion.
Pro Wrestling NOAH (2006-2018)[edit | edit source]
Teaming with KENTA and Ricky Marvin (2006-2008)[edit | edit source]
Ishimori began working as a freelance wrestler for Pro Wrestling NOAH in March 2006 and often worked as part of the "SEM" promotion that was considered the "Training Ground" for Noah wrestlers. He began teaming up with KENTA, wrestling on many shows together, trying to earn a match for the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. The team failed to win the title on their initial chance. Due to being trained in Mexico Ishimori often wrestled against Mexican Luchadores who toured with Noah, facing such opponents as Charly Manson or Abismo Negro. He also wrestled on the NOAH / Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) co-promoted show TripleSEM on September 3, 2007, teaming with El Elegido and KENTA to lose to the Mexican Powers (Crazy Boy, Joe Lider, and Juventud Guerrera). In 2007 Ishimori became a full-time NOAH wrestler and shortly after Ishimori and Kenta won the Tag Champions. The team went to Dragon Gate and defeated the team of BxB Hulk and Shingo Takagi on March 20, 2008. to bring the Noah Junior Heavyweight Tag Title back to Noah. Ishimori and Kenta successfully defended the title against Ricky Marvin and Kotaro Suzuki and also the team of Bryan Danielson and Eddie Edwards from Ring of Honor. On July 13, 2008, Ishimori and Kenta were defeated by Yoshinobu Kanemaru and Kotaro Suzuki and lost the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. In September 2008, the team won the 2008 Nippon TV Cup Junior Heavyweight Tag League, with 12 points for 6 victories including defeating the reigning GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag team champions in the last match. In 2009 Ishimori began teaming regularly with Ricky Marvin, chasing after the Junior tag team titles. In early 2010 the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag title became vacant when Kotaro Suzuki suffered a knee injury. Ishimori and Marvin teamed up for a tournament to determine the next champions. They defeated Bobby Fish and Eddie Edwards in the first round and Genba Hirayanagi and Yoshinbou Kanemaru in the finals to win the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. On August 22 Ishimori and Marvin lost the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship to New Japan Pro Wrestling representatives Koji Kanemoto and Tiger Mask IV.
Junior Heavyweight Championships success (2013-2018)[edit | edit source]
On January 27, 2013, Ishimori defeated Shuji Kondo to win the GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship for the first time. Through Noah's working relationship with Ring of Honor, Ishimori made his debut for the promotion on May 4, 2013, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, facing Eddie Edwards in a losing effort. During the following day's tapings of Ring of Honor Wrestling, Ishimori defeated Roderick Strong in a singles match. After a 405-day reign, the longest in the title's history, Ishimori lost the GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship to Daisuke Harada on March 8, 2014. He won the title for the second time on December 23, 2015, by defeating Taichi. Ishimori lost the title to Taichi's Suzuki-gun's stablemate Yoshinobu Kanemaru on February 24.

In this same month, Ishimori took part in the 2016 NTV G+ Cup Junior Heavyweight Tag League with his partner being American wrestler ACH. The pair won the tag league defeating Hajime Ohara and Kenoh for a spot in the final match then defeating Momo no Seishun (Daisuke Harada and Atsushi Kotoge), at the time the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship holders, in the final match. Their title match against Momo no Seishun was held on the final of the 2016 Super J-Cup and they were defeated.
Upon Atsushi Kotoge's vacation of the GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship, Ishimori faced Hajime Ohara for the vacant title on January 7, 2017, Noah's first show of the year. Ishimori lost the match to Ohara. Following a victory over Hi69 on January 9, the two agreed to form a tag team and made their interest in the newly vacant GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship known. The team squared off with the team of HAYATA and YO-HEY on February 18 for the vacated titles and defeated them to become the thirtieth champions. Following the win, the pair dubbed their team "XX" and accepted the challenge of their first challengers Daisuke Harada and Tadasuke for the March 12 'Great Voyage in Yokohama' show where they won. On March 25 XX teamed up with Hitoshi Kumano and the GHC Junior Heavyweight Champion Hajime Ohara to face RATEL'S in a two out of three falls eight-man tag team match. During the final moments of the match, Kumano and Ohara had miss communication with XX which lead them to lose the match. After the match, Kumano and Ohara attacked Ishimori and challenged them for their titles. On April 22 XX defeated Back Breakers (Ohara and Kumano) to make their second successful defense of the GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships.

On January 27, 2018, Ishimori and Hi69 won the titles back from HAYATA and YO-HEY, only to lose it to Minoru Tanaka and Yoshinari Ogawa on March 11. This led the two splitting up after losing the titles. Afterwards, it was reported that he would leave NOAH, stating that he wanted "a new stage for his career" and wanted to compete on the international wrestling scene. One of the reasons that Ishimori left NOAH, was because of losing the title to Yoshinari Ogawa.
