Welcome Back Jun Kasai!!!
Wednesday, April 6, 2011 @ 07:05am EDT

Earlier this year at our January event, From Small Beginnings Come Great Things, CZW Owner DJ HYDE made an announcement that shook the Combat Zone to its core.  Making his return to the United States for CZW after a decade long absence is a man who is a personification of ultraviolence; "THE CRAZY MONKEY" JUN KASAI.  Long time fans know of the swathe of destruction Kasai carved in the Combat Zone, but for you newer fans, here's what you can expect from one of Japan's fiercest competitors.

CZW & our international partner BJW feuded with each other in the early years of the Combat Zone.  Kasai was a Big Japan star who aligned himself with CZW and fought against his home promotion.  When he relocated to the USA, Kasai helped form THE BIG DEALZ, consisting of CZW Founder John Zandig, "Sick" Nick Mondo, Wifebeater, Z-Barr, & the late Trent Acid.  Together, they asserted their dominance over the Combat Zone before ultimately dissolving.

Kasai gained notoriety in CZW at "Un F'n Believable" in April 2001 where he competed in a fans bring the weapons match with Mondo against the team of Justice Pain & Johnny Kashmere.  During the match, Kasai was crucifix bombed over the top rope onto lighttubes, barbed wire, & glass.  The result was Kasai's ELBOW BONE protruding from his skin.  Not one to let this stop him, Kasai had his elbow taped up & finished the match.

The greatest success for Kasai came in 2001, when he won two of CZW's championships.  On May 4th in Sappora, Japan, Kasai defeated MEN'S TEIOH for the World Junior Heavyweight Championship.  Seeking to add another title to his resume, Kasai teamed with Teioh & the duo defeated THE BACKSEAT BOYS on August 17, 2001 in Nagoya, Japan for the World Tag Team Championship.  The reigns would be short lived.  Kasai lost both titles two days later in Yokohama; the Tag Team Championship went back to the Backseats & the Junior Heavyweight Title went to Trent Acid.

Upon finishing his tour of duty in the Combat Zone, Kasai returned to Japan and has competed mainly for BJW.  He has become infamous for competing in the RAZOR DEATHMATCH, where boards are fitted with razor blades.  Having competed in 5 of these matches, Kasai's body is covered in scars.  Where he sees them as badges of honor, many see only a road map of pain.  One of these matches pitted Team CZW (Kasai, DJ Hyde, & Nick Gage) against Team BJW on April 5th, 2010.  A pool of carnage was left in the ring in the aftermath.

Jun Kasai makes his long awaited return to the United States during "BEST OF THE BEST X" Weekend.  You will have a chance to meet Kasai at the K&S WrestleFest Convention the morning of Saturday, April 9th at the Ramada Inn in Essington, PA.  Kasai will be appearing with fellow BJW star & Best of the Best participant DAISUKE SEKIMOTO.  We encourage all CZW fans to go check out this great event; information can be found at  That afternoon at the Asylum Arena in Philadelphia, Kasai will square off with "THE GOLDEN BOY" DRAKE YOUNGER at wXw's Kreuzzug Zki Part 1 in a NO ROPE BARBED WIRE MATCH.  Later that evening at CZW's Best of the Best, Kasai will defend the CZW Ultraviolent Underground Championship against DANNY HAVOC.  The very next day, CZW makes its return to New Jersey at the ACE Arena in Union City as part of another loaded double header with wXw where we will present "INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT".   Kasai is no stranger to his opponent that afternoon. Returning to the Combat Zone is a man Kasai has competed against in one of the razor deathmatches.  In New Jersey, Jun Kasai will face THE NECRO BUTCHER in an ULTRAVIOLENT RULES MATCH!!!  And as if those 3 matches weren't enough, you will have one more chance to catch Kasai that weekend.  Later that evening at the ACE Arena, wXw presents Kreuzzug Zki Part 2.  Kasai's final match for this loaded weekend will pit him against the winner of this year's wXw 16 Carat Gold Tournament in a hardcore match..."THE NEW HORROR" SAMI CALLIHAN!!!

Tickets for the double headers in Philadelphia, PA & Union City, NJ are on sale now in the CZW Pro Shop.  For tickets to the K&S WrestleFest event, please visit the link posted earlier in the article.  Do you live in Northern New Jersey or New York and want to attend the double header in Philadelphia, yet don't want to drive?  No problem!  Check out information on the bus trip to Philadelphia HERE ...  Remember is limited!
