Currently have him at #12 for GWWE. Watched a lot of him after GWE and yeah, a terrific worker. All time great heel, super hard hitting, lots of good-great matches.

New #1 for 2017. All Japan is back. Believe the hype.

 

I don't know, I prefer the Akiyama stuff from 13-16 to what I've seen this year from AJPW.

The two matches vs. Azumi Hyuga (9/23/1999 and 3/20/2000) are must see. Superb offensive wrestler + great underdog. Also Hyuga might be the greatest wrestler ever who no one talks about.

I'm not quite as high on 90s All Japan as I used to be. Nothing too dramatic considering 3-4 of the certified super classics would still make my  all time Top 20-25 easily (including my undisputed #1). Plus I absolutely love Kobashi/Kikuchi vs. Can-Am and other under the radar stuff like Taue vs. Hansen or Kawada vs. Albright. But I wouldn't consider many of the acclaimed classics (12/3/93, 5/21/94, Kawada vs. Williams etc. etc.) great anymore and think many of the matches that were praised as **** ish/MOTYC level are merely good. A big part of that I feel is fatigue due to limited combinations of guys and lack of variety. I'd rather watch Tenryu vs. Hashimoto over Misawa vs. Kawada (tags or singles) nowadays.

 

No longer a fan of the traditional big match WWE style. Matches (even the highly acclaimed ones which I used to like as recently as a couple of years ago) with reversals and kickouts and "drama" do nothing for me. Much prefer more unorthodox stuff like Foley brawls or Lesnar beatdowns or something with a narrative hook or stylistic twist.
