Hailing from the land of the Rising Sun, the "Japanese Buzzsaw" Yoshihiro Tajiri comes armed with an arsenal of some of the hardest hitting kicks in the Pro Wrestling game.

Meshing a combination of shoot style kicks, Lucha Libre aerial maneuvers, and a unique variety of mat wrestling and pinning combinations, Tajiri can defeat his opponents in any number of ways.

Tajiri is the creator of the Tarantula, a unique maneuver where he entraps his opponent's arms and legs between the ring ropes and Tajiri himself.

Utilizing a brainbuster and a dragon suplex as his favorite finishing maneuvers, Tajiri had won over the Extreme Championship Wrestling fan base, later shocking them when he aligned himself with Steve Corino.

That alliance lasted until Corino and Cyrus demanded Tajiri hand the World Television championship over to The Network. They found out exactly what every Japanese wrestling promoter that ever worked with Tajiri has learned. You don't push Yoshihiro Tajiri around. Tajiri valiantly fought against The Network, before falling to the massive Rhino.

Since his departure from ECW he has been a force to recon with in WWE as part of Mr. McMahon's Smackdown! group, fighting in the Cruiserweight division.
