  • The third graduate of the Dragon Gate dojo, Tozawa debuted in early 2005. His development was slow, and he was quickly sent back for more seasoning. Even after his re-debut later that year, he struggled to find his place. Experiments with the comedy path & extreme weight gain failed. The cure to his woes would end up being a one year stint in the United States. He gained a massive following, garnering rave reviews for his performances. This gave him the self confidence he needed to find success in his home country. He made a shocking return as the final member of Blood Warriors. Confidence eventually turned to egomania, causing him to tear down BW and reform it in the image conceived by himself & BxB Hulk as MAD BLANKEY. He was ousted from the group in summer 2013. Looking to make pro wrestling an enjoyable endeavour again, he surrounded himself with his best friends. Together, they formed MONSTER EXPRESS.
