Kyosuke Mikami (三上 恭佑 Mikami Kyōsuke) is a Japanese professional wrestler currently working under the ring name El Desperado (エル・デスペラード Eru Desuperādo). He is signed to New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). Mikami was trained by the NJPW dojo and worked for NJPW for two years as a low rookie while gaining in-ring experience. In 2012 he traveled to Mexico for an extended stay as part of his training regimen, working for NJPW's Mexican affiliate Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) as the masked character Namajague, a Spanish translation of Namahage, a Japanese folk demon. While in CMLL he won his first professional wrestling title alongside Okumura, the CMLL Arena Coliseo Tag Team Championship, in March 2013. After being unmasked due to losing a match and briefly working without one, Mikami returned to NJPW in January 2014 and was repackaged under another mask as El Desperado.
