Style: Technical, high-flying, striking, entertainer

Inside the ring and out, Akira Tozawa is an audacious Superstar. As the third-ever graduate of Japan’s world-respected Dragon Gate dojo, Tozawa helped blaze a trail as an early staple of the Dragon Gate organization. Yet, Tozawa’s vicious strikes have been felt worldwide, courtesy of several tours around the globe.

Along the way, the trash-talking, fearless fighter has crossed paths with the likes of Kevin Owens, Dean Ambrose and Sami Zayn. Every step of the way, Tozawa has unleashed his unique brand of brutality, including a big boot that leaves its imprint via countless kick varieties. With agility and athleticism to spare, almost no opponent is safe from his far-reaching bicycle kick.

That’s to say nothing of his Brock Lesnar-appetite for dishing out German suplexes — even, on occasion, on the ring apron. Tozawa remains one of Japan’s most decorated warriors, but will he soon add WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic tournament winner to his long list of accolades?
