Atsushi Onita (October 25, 1957) is a Japanese former politician and active professional wrestler best known as the founder and one of the top stars of FMW. He is credited with importing to Japan, as well as innovating, the death match style of professional wrestling (which was largely popular and rooted in Puerto Rico).
In December 2016, Onita announced his plans to retire on October 25, 2017, his sixtieth birthday. He also wanted Masato Tanaka to lead the revived FMW after his retirement.
