On the edge for me, but he does have one of Lyger's best matches ever and he has the best match in NJ Juniors history with Ohtani on 1/21/96. He has some REALLY high peaks. In the end, I can see him making the bottom part of my list.

This is a guy who looked like his dives hurt more than they were pretty. He was an insane bump freak during the J-Crown run too. Loved the Liger and Ohtani matches. 

 

I may have to re-visit him as I wasn't considering him, but I am a big fan.

Arguably Liger's best opponent.  This definitely matters.

And Otani's. The 1/96 and 6/99 Samurai-Otani matches are as good as any juniors matches all decade long. Also had a really underappreciated match with Benoit in the BOSJ finals in 1993. Seriously, I implore everyone to watch the June 1999 match, since that's most likely the one the least people have seen.

Is it online anywhere? I haven't been able to find it.

It's not, but it's on the Best of the Super Juniors 1999 commercial release.

I've liked what I've seen of him so far. The Liger match is awesome of course but I also love the '97 BOSJ final with Kanemoto. Proof he could be a great heel as well as a great babyface.
