History: (Last Edited: 1/13/2006)

In the 1990s, there were three wrestlers (dubbed the 3 Musketeers by some wrestling columnists) who dominated New Japan Pro Wrestling: Masa Chono, Keiji Mutoh, and Shinya Hashimoto. To be listed in the company of two other legends displays Hashimoto's contribution to the sport.

Hashimoto grew up in Toki City, and began training in judo in his late teens. His training helped him in his transition to professional wrestling, as he joined New Japan Pro Wrestling in April 1984. Hashimoto worked on becoming a skilled wrestler over the next few years, travelling whenever necessary to gain more seasoning. Over time, Hashimoto began to grow respected in the eyes of the Japanese fans, leading to his climb up the NJPW ladder. In Setpember 1989, Hashimoto teamed with Masa Saito to win his first gold, the NJPW IWGP Tag-Team Titles, beating Riki Choshu & Takayuki Iizuka. The two would hold the belts until the next year, losing in April 1990 to two other up-and-comers: Masa Chono & Keiji Mutoh.

For the next few years, Hashimoto built his reputation in NJPW, taking on all comers, including kickboxers and other professional fighters. Hashimoto hit the big time in 1993, as he won the IWGP Heavyweight Title from the Great Muta (aka Keiji Mutoh) in September. Hashimoto would hold the biggest belt in NJPW for the next 7 months before being taken down by the legendary Tatsumi Fujinami. However, Hashimoto didn't sit back after the defeat, as he regained the gold only a month later, in May 1994. For the next year, Hashimoto stayed the force in New Japan, defeating challenger after challenger. In fact, Hashimoto reigned as the IWGP Champion for almost exactly a year, losing the belt to Mutoh only a few days after celebrating the milestone.

A few months after losing the gold, Hashimoto teamed up with Junji Hirata in July 1995 to face and defeat Scott Norton & Mike Enos to win the vacated NJPW IWGP Tag-Team Titles, making Hashimoto a two-time champion in both divisions. This led to Hashimoto going on another long-championship run, as he & Hirata would remain the champions for almost another year. Hashimoto also became a double champion, as he defeated Nobuhiko Takada to regain the IWGP Heavyweight Title in April 1996. Hashimoto & Hirata would lose the tag titles in June 1996, when they fell to Kazuo Yamazaki & Takashi Iizuka. This allowed Hashimoto to focus on the singles gold, as he worked on another long run. Through the end of 1996 and a good portion of 1997, Hashimoto could not be stopped. Finally, at the end of August 1997, Hashimoto lost the Heavyweight Title to Kensuke Sasaki, ending a historic run.

Hashimoto continued to work for NJPW for the next few years, earning another great honor by winning the G-1 Climax in 1998. However, the gold no longer came easily for the long-time champion, and after several losses to his rival, Naoya Ogawa, Hashimoto vowed to retire if he lost again to the judo star. Unfortunately, Hashimoto did lose, and in April 2000, Hashimoto left NJPW behind, disappearing for a time from the wrestling scene. It turned out, though, that Hashimoto had other plans than retirement, as he founded Zero-One in March 2001. This was a major accomplishment, as Hashimoto helped the organization become a force in Japan. Hashimoto also showed that his wrestling talents had not diminished, as he challenged Steve Corino for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in October 2001. The match ended in controversy, leading to the belt being held up. In December 2001, Hashimoto faced off against Corino and Gary Steele in a "Triple Threat" Match, winning the vacated NWA World Heavyweight Title, another prestigious honor for the Japanese legend.

Hashimoto's NWA World Title reign would come to an end in March 2002, through duplicitous means, as a crooked referee gave a fast count, allowing Dan Severn to win away the belt. Hashimoto then went back to concentrating on Zero-One, where he was an active competitor. In October 2002, Hashimoto teamed with his old rival, Naoya Ogawa, to win the NWA Intercontinental Tag-Team Titles (which were usually defended in Zero One) from John Heidenreich & Nathan Jones. The two would defend the belts for the next few months, before falling to Matt Ghaffari & Tom Howard in December 2002. The two teams feuded on and off over the next few months, even as Hashimoto looked to another organization for a major accomplishment.

In February 2003, Hashimoto defeated the Great Muta (Mutoh) to earn the All Japan Pro Wrestling Triple Crown Heavyweight Title. This was a major success, as Hashimoto became only the second man to have held the NJPW, AJPW, and NWA World Titles (Mutoh was the first). Hashimoto added to that gold, temporarily, when he & Ogata won back the NWA Intercontinental Tag-Team Titles from Ghaffari & Howard in April 2003. However, due to Ogaya having thrown Ghaffari over the top rope at one point in the match, NWA President Richard Arpin stripped them of the belts a few days later (throwing an opponent over the top rope is against the rules in the NWA). Hashimoto's AJPW Triple Crown would face a similar fate, as Hashimoto suffered a knee injury in August 2003 and had to vacate the belt.

Despite the build-up of several injuries, Hashimoto continued to wrestle on and off in Zero-One, including teaming with Yoshaki Fujiwara to get the NWA Intercontinental Tag-Team Titles for a third time, defeating Takao Omori & Shiro Koshinaka in June 2004. The two would stay the champs for the next few months, before Omori found a new partner in Shinjiro Ohtani to take the belts away in August 2004. Going into 2005, Hashimoto surprisingly left Zero-One, placing Ohtani in charge. Many speculated that, once Hashimoto recovered from various injuries, he would be making a return to New Japan Pro Wrestling. Unfortuntely, this would not be the case.

One July 11th, 2005, Hashimoto suffered a brain hemorrhage and collapsed, passing away at the age of 40. It was a shocking death to long-term fans of the star, who seemed too young to die in such a way. Hashimoto's effects on professional wrestling in Japan cannot be understated, as he took several companies, from NJPW to Zero-One, to great heights, becoming a true legend in the sport.
