Yoshihiro Asai

Biography: Ultimo Dragon is one of the greatest international competitors ever to hit WWE. With a background in kung fu, kempo karate and kickboxing, he's also one of WWE's most innovative in-ring competitors. He's the inventor of several maneuvers, including the Asai moonsault.
Dragon spent years competing around the world and developing a reputation as one of the best in the game. WWE was the one place he had never appeared, until he made his highly anticipated debut in the summer of 2003. Dragon grew up watching the original Tiger Mask defend WWE's now-defunct Junior Heavyweight Championship all across the world, including at Madison Square Garden. Since then, he'd dreamed about performing at the "World's Most Famous Arena," a dream which has finally come true. His goal of wrestling at MSG played a big part in his decision to return to action, despite calling it quits for several years due to nerve damage in his arm that at one point seemed to be career-ending.

Born in Japan, Ultimo Dragon has lived for the last several years in Mexico City. (Today he has a wrestling school in each country.) Dragon himself began training for sports entertainment in his native country at age 18. Soon after, he moved to Mexico, where his career took off. He traveled back and forth from Mexico to Japan repeatedly throughout the early to mid-1990s, winning numerous titles in the process. By 1996, he was also wrestling in WCW. After he won gold in that organization, he held 10 championships at the same time; he's possibly the only competitor in history who can claim such a feat.
