Trained by former junior heavyweight contender Masanobu Kurisu, Raijin made his debut in 1998, competing primarily on the independent circuit. In 2004, he competed in All Japan for sometime with marginal success, as he would generally be wrestling the first match of all of the shows with no victories. He spent 2005 and 2006 in similar fashion, but would get some levels of success competing occasionally with Mutoh as well as Suwama. In 2007, he left Japan to live in Windsor, Ontario, Canada with Scott D'Amore to gain "learning experience" in North America, where he competed for numerous independent promotions, including a match against the NWA Junior heavyweight champion Mike Quackenbush in CHIKARA, which he lost.
