Professional wrestling career

Independent circuit (2014–present)

Shimomura made his professional wrestling debut in Nukui Kusa Wrestling (nkw), on May 17, 2014, under the name Daiki (stylized DAIKI).[4] He graduated from nkw in 2015.[5]

He is known for his work in various promotions. At K-DOJO Chiba Festival 2019, an event promoted by Kaientai Dojo (K-Dojo) on May 2, 2019, he teamed up with fellow Sento Minzoku stablemates Ryuichi Sekine and Isami Kodaka and unsuccessfully challenged Ayato Yoshida, Tank Nagai and Tatsuya Hanami for the Chiba Six Man Tag Team Championship.[6] At Gatoh Move Gtmv #14, an event promoted by Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling on October 31, 2019, Shimomura teamed up with Ryuichi Sekine in a losing effort to Chris Brookes and Masahiro Takanashi.[7]

Pro-Wrestling Basara (2020–present)

On January 1, 2020, the Basara brand officially split up from DDT and became an independent company. Shimomura stayed with the new company as a full-time member.[8] At BJW Osaka Surprise 53 ~ Zero Gravity 2021 on August 8, Shimomura teamed up with Minoru Fujita and Isami Kodaka to win the UWA World Trios Championship for the second time after defeating Andy Wu, Hub and Ultimate Spider Jr.[9]

DDT Pro-Wrestling (2015–2019)

In 2015, Shimomura became a trainee in DDT New Attitude (DNA), a developmental sub-brand of DDT Pro-Wrestling that ran from 2014 to 2018. He had his first match at DNA14, a house show promoted by DDT on March 5, 2016, where he fell short to Kota Umeda.[10]

Shimomura is known for his appearances in various signature events of the promotion. One of them is the DDT Peter Pan, working his first match at Ryōgoku Peter Pan 2016 on August 28 where he teamed up with Kazusada Higuchi to defeat Kouki Iwasaki and Mizuki Watase.[11]

In 2017, Shimomura made his first appearance at a DDT Judgement event, at Judgement 2017: DDT 20th Anniversary on March 20 where he teamed up with Rekka and Yuki Ueno in a losing effort to Nobuhiro Shimatani, Naomi Yoshimura and Dai Suzuki.[12] He marked his last Peter Pan appearance at Ryōgoku Peter Pan 2017 on August 20 where he teamed up with Mizuki Watase, Rekka and Diego to defeat Tomomitsu Matsunaga, Hoshitango, Nobuhiro Shimatani and Masato Kamino in an eight-man tag team match.[13]
