Formation of Los Ingobernables de Japon
In 2015, Naito was working as a wrestler in Mexico, where he joined CMLL’s stable Los Ingobernables. When he returned to Japan, he kept representing the Mexican stable and presented the rebellous attitude associated with “the ungovernables”.
On the 12th of October 2015, Naito was wrestling Hiroshi Tanahashi. Takaaki Watanabe attacked Tanahashi during the match, revealing himself as Naitos new partner. In an interview after the match, Naito unvealed Watanabes new ring name: (King of Darkness) EVIL.
On the 21th of November, Naito and EVIL entered the World Tag League, with Bushi joining them as a third member of the group subsequently dubbed Los Ingobernables de Japon.
On the 9th of December, Bushi defeated Máscara in a title match with help from Naito and EVIL, bringing Los Ingobernables de Japon their first championship win.
