2008 Recap:
Yoshihashi debuted on July 7th against Kazuchika Okada, losing in just under 5 minutes. He did not pick up any wins in 2008, which is normal for a rookie. He will look to get his first win in 2009.

2009 Recap:
In 2009, Yoshihashi continued looking for that elusive first pinfall but never got it as he continued opening cards. Not showing quite as much growth as one might have hoped, in the fall he lost singles matches against wrestlers ranging in age from Okada to AKIRA. He did not wrestle in the G1 Tag League.

2010 Recap:
Yoshihashi showed a little progress in 2010 before leaving for an excursion in the late spring. He participated in the Best of the Super Jr. Tournament for the first time and managed to defeat AKIRA in the first match, but lost the rest of his matches. In June, Yoshihashi left for CMLL in Mexico, and he did not wrestle in New Japan from that date until the end of 2010. As of the end of the year, no announcement was made for his return.
