Information

Razor Ramon HG first debuted in 1997, however, as a wrestler under the same name. He had met fellow comic and wrestler Izubuchi Makoto and started a comedy duo based on it. Their stunts got tons of praise however their comedy did not. So in 2001, Razor Ramon HG went on to join Yoshimoto Kogyo, one of Japan's biggest comedy troupes. When talking with fellow troupe member Kobayashi Kendo, the idea came up that he should play a militant homosexual. As Kobayashi put it "he made a perfect hardcore gay". Razor Ramon went with the idea and decided that La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin would be his theme song.

This militant homosexual persona has become very popular in Japan. Lots of schoolgirls love him and Razor Ramon often appears on the show Bakuten, a variety show on TBS. Aside from the La Vida Loca theme song Razor Ramon is most famous for his hip gyrations and shouting "Whoooo!" or "Haado Gei" (Hard Gay or seen cleverly as The Art of Hard Gay". On the show Razor Ramon had his own little segment where he went around Tokyo trying to help people. This sort of personality on Bakuten (which is shown during "family hour") has a mixed reaction though. A lot of people like him and some people absolutely hate him.

This can clearly be seen as Razor Ramon was recently given the award for "Most Topical Figure" in Japan. However its clearly seen most parents aren't thrilled with his acts when they protested about his hip gyrations. However Razor Ramon simply ripped up their complaints claiming he gave "dreams to children". Despite all of this, even his persona, the man behind the persona is actually well mannered and quiet. When not portraying Razor Ramon Hard Gay he simply lives at his apartment in Nishinari-ku, Osaka. He also seems well aware that while people love his persona now and it pays his bills, his persona will not last forever and he will move on to other acts.

In the meantime, Razor Ramon has a very small music career (mostly tied to his persona) and continues to work in Yoshimoto Kogyo. He also continues to make apparences in his Village People like get up and even wrestles still. Recently he has started to work with his friend Izubuchi Makoto again and even has him going by the name "Razor Ramon RG" now.
