Professional wrestling career[edit | edit source]
New Japan Pro Wrestling (2017–present)[edit | edit source]
In April 2017, Tsuji was signed to New Japan Pro-Wrestling under the promotion's "young lion" system. The following April, at Lion's Gate Project 11, on April 10, Tsuji made his professional wrestling debut losing to fellow young lion Tomoyuki Oka. As is customary for most professional wrestlers and various young lions, Uemura spent most of his matches losing to other, more experienced wrestlers, which would help put over other wrestlers while at the same time give Uemura some in-ring, televised, experience. On September 5, Tsuji got his first professional wrestling victory teaming with Ren Narita facing fellow young lions Shota Umino and Yuya Uemura in a winning effort. After losing most of his matches throughout 2019, Tsuji was granted a chance to enter in the 2019 Young Lion Cup in September during the Road to Destruction tour, following a heated rivalry between the young lions of the Japan and L.A. dojos, that was build up during the 2019 G1 Climax and Super J-Cup tours. Tsuji would finish the tournament with a record of two win and five losses, failing to win the tournament. In June 2020, Tsuji took part in the 2020 New Japan Cup, being eliminated from the tournament by Togi Makabe in the first round on June 16.
