Biography: Arguably one of the most controversial names in all of combat sports, the "Shoot Terrorist" Ryo Inoue has waged a war of philosophy and pride for almost two decades. Despite breaking into pro-wrestling as a high-flyer for Neo Japan Pro-Wrestling, Inoue would find greater success as an idealistic shoot fighter after incorporating the sports he competed in during his youth into his wrestling style, effectively creating the "Shoot Terrorist." Inoue gained fame in the Japan Pro-Wrestling Association due to his grand standing challenges towards JPA owner Genji Yamato. He is also noted for creating one of the more influential factions in wrestling: Total Attack Pro-Wrestling. While the group has seen different versions throughout the years, the result is always the same with Ryo Inoue as its leader: Destruction.
