Professional wrestling career Edit

New Japan Pro Wrestling (2017–present)Edit

In April 2017, Tsuji was signed to New Japan Pro-Wrestling under New Japan's "young lion" system. A year later Tsuji as well as fellow young lion, Yuya Uemura, made their pro-wrestling debuts at Lion's Gate Project 11 where Tsuji was defeated by Tomoyuki Oka. In Yota's second match he was defeated by Ren Narita. During night one of Wrestling Dontaku 2018, Tsuji and Shota Umino were defeated by Chase Owens and Yujiro Takahashi of the Bullet Club. At Lion's Gate Project 12, Tsuji and Yuya Uemura went to a time-limit draw. At Lion's Gate Project 13, Tsuji and Uemura wrestled to a draw. On September 5, Tsuji teamed with Ren Narita to defeat Yuya Uemura and Shota Umino, winning for the first time. 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.
