Valiente was scheduled to make his first appearance for the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based Chikara as part of the 2010 King of Trios tournament that runs from April 23 - April 25 at The Arena in Philadelphia. Valiente was to team with Skayde and Turbo to form "Team Mexico". Their first round opponents were scheduled to be Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes ( Claudio Castagnoli , Ares and Tursas ), Chikara's top heel group at the moment.  However, on April 22, Chikara announced that they no longer expected Valiente to honor his commitment with the company, after he stopped returning their phone calls and didn't board his flight to Philadelphia.  Doubts later arose if Skayde ever actually contacted Valiente about arrating the booking or not. In April 2010 it was announced that Valiente and Mascara Dorada would travel to Japan in early May to participate in New Japan Pro Wrestling 's first ever Super J Tag Team tournament.  In the first round of the tournament they lost to former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Ryusuke Taguchi and Prince Devitt in just under eight minutes.  On January 4, 2012, Valiente returned to New Japan at Wrestle Kingdom VI in Tokyo Dome , where he teamed with Atlantis , Taichi and Taka Michinoku in an eight-man tag team match, where they were defeated by Jushin Thunder Liger , KUSHIDA , Máscara Dorada and Tiger Mask .  On April 7, 2013, Valiente returned to New Japan Pro Wrestling at Invasion Attack , where he and La Máscara unsuccessfully challenged Tama Tonga and El Terrible for the CMLL World Tag Team Championship .  Valiente returned to New Japan on October 25, when he and Bushi entered the 2013 Super Jr. Tag Tournament , defeating Kushida and Yohei Komatsu in their first round match.  They were eliminated from the tournament in the semifinals on November 6 by the Forever Hooligans ( Alex Koslov and Rocky Romero).
