Professional wrestling career
All Japan Pro Wrestling (1993-2000)
He almost joined All Japan Pro Wrestling in the 1980s, but it wasn't until after he turned 30 years old that he debuted. Although he never reached the main event level many believed he would, Honda held the AJPW All Asia Tag Team Championship twice in the late 1990s.
Pro Wrestling Noah (2000-2010)
After joining Pro Wrestling Noah, he gradually became a regular on the roster, with 2002 and 2003 seeing major progress for him. Honda left NOAH in January 2010, deciding not to sign a new contract with the promotion and become a freelancer. He still appears on occasion in the promotion.
Honda is married to a piano instructor. His father Daizaburo was a canoeist who represented Japan in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. His cousin Keisuke Honda is a Japanese football player.
