Dolgorsürengiin Serjbüdee (Mongolian: Долгорсүрэнгийн Сэржбүдээ) is a Mongolian professional wrestler who wrestled for New Japan Pro Wrestling. He goes by the ring name Blue Wolf.

Career[edit]

Dolgorsürengiin Serjbüdee is the brother of Dolgorsürengiin Sumiyaabazar, a high ranking Mongolian traditional wrestler, and Asashoryu Akinori (Dolgorsürengiin Dagvadorj), a sumo yokozuna. Because of this fact, Serjbüdee received a large amount of press coverage when he became the first Mongolian professional wrestler when he joined New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Serjbüdee made his debut during the 2001 G1 Climax tournament, facing Shinya Makabe. Having wrestled in amateur and sumo competitions since he was 15 years old, he showed immediate skill, strength and submission knowledge. Showing remarkable growth going into 2002, he was putting up good fights against established wrestling names. In January, 2002 he changed his ring name to Blue Wolf, which was similar to that of his brother's sumo name, Blue Dragon. This made it easier to promote Serjbüdee.

He joined Kensuke Sasaki's short-lived SWING-LOWS faction in July, 2002, which placed him into more feature matches. Even though he was often the loser in these matches, just the fact that he was even in such a position as a rookie was quite amazing. In 2006, Blue Wolf failed to renegotiate a contract with NJPW, however stating he would fight in the company without a contract. Blue Wolf has not yet been seen again in NJPW, pointing towards a return to Mongolia where he runs his own dojo.

In May 2004, Serjbüdee defeated fellow pro wrestler Tom Howard (aka "Green Beret") in an overwhelming mixed martial arts debut victory hosted by K-1.
