Date Naoto, who was Tiger Mask, had been raised in a orphans' home, then he had been trained by the heel wrestler training organization, Cave of Tigers. The wrestlers who had trained at Cave of Tigers had to pay a lot of money. However, he knew that the orphan's house was suffering from a lot of debts, and he took over the debts in order to help Ruriko who was his childhood friend and the manager of the orphans' house without revealing that he was Tiger mask.
