Daisuke Ikeda (池田大輔; Ikeda Daisuke, born February 13, 1968) is a Japanese professional wrestler who is currently wrestling in the Independent circuit in Japan.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Ikeda was trained by Yoshiaki Fujiwara and joined Fujiwara's promotion Fujiwara Gumi in 1993. In 1995 he moved to BattlARTS. As one of the few heavyweights competing in a promotion made up mostly of junior heavyweights (compare Jinsei Shinzaki in Michinoku Pro Wrestling), he often had to look out of the promotion for challenges, including Shinzaki and FMW talent such as Hayabusa, Masato Tanaka, and Hiromichi Fuyuki.

In 1998 he started making appearances in All Japan Pro Wrestling, and finally in early 2000 he joined the promotion as a full-time worker. He did not stay long as later that year he left for Mitsuharu Misawa's new promotion Pro Wrestling Noah. He briefly joined Misawa's Wave faction, but left soon after. On June 1, 2004 he beat Takeshi Morishima for the WLW Heavyweight Championship. In December 2004 he announced his departure from Noah. He now wrestles in the Japanese Independent circuit, and runs his own promotion, Fu-Ten Promotion.
