Big Japan Pro-Wrestling

PhotobucketBig Japan (Dai Nihon Puroresu / 大日本プロレス) was founded in late 1994 (December 21st to be exact) by Shinya “Great Kojika” Kojika, who was a former All Japan Pro Wrestling and WAR wrestler. He was joined soon after by Kendo Nagasaki, Hirokazu Taniguchi, and Ryuji Yamakawa and the promotion would be be a mix of standard wrestling and the growing form of hardcore styles.

Following the steps set by FMW (Frontier Martial Arts Wrestling) they would become known as a the place to go to see some the bloodiest matches and some of the more ultra-violent matches ever seen.

Throughout the years they would become well known for having Fluorescent light-tube matches as well as the even more crazy Piranha Deathmatches, Crocodille Deathmatch, Glass, Razorboards, pretty much if you can name it they have had it in a match in some form.
In July of 2011, former referee and announcer, Eiji Tosaka was announced to be the new President of BJW following Kojika’s proper retirement as the president of the promotion.
