I'll throw Takeshi Ono out there as well. One of my favorite BattlArts guys. Just a bad, bad motherfucker.

Re: Greatest Wrestlers No One Ever Talks About

Discuss. I'll throw Kantaro Hoshino's name out there. Criminal how little love he gets historically. I'm sure there are people reading this who have never even heard of the guy. I haven't delved into the 80s NJ stuff like I should but I've heard he's great. I've only known him from the Makai Club. ...

Re: Why is every good match a MATYC

I think people over-use the term but mainly for a good cause: advertising a match they really liked that people should see. Like I saw a lot of people saying Hero vs Scurll at PROGRESS Chapter 31 was a MOTYC and while I disagree (it's very good, though, don't get me wrong and I'd recommend checking...

Re: Why is every good match a MATYC

Because wrestling is so great right now, I have ****1/2 matches and ****3/4 matches that I wouldn't sniff the top of my MOTY list, granted I am very loose with my ratings, meaning if I like a match, I'm not afraid to give it a good amount of stars. I have three ***** matches this year, lots of ****3...

Re: Joel Maximo

I made a joke that he'd be #49 on my ballot over Delirious. He's not gonna make it on, but I liked the Maximos more than most.

Re: Why is Will Ospreay so beloved?

Age, ability, charisma, style, all sort of connected as to why so many like him I think. He wrestles with a "I think I'll try that now" mentality which is easy to like. Also, give me another wrestler, not named chris hero, with as many great high profile matches in 2016... Kassious Ohno! But seriou...

Re: Frankie Kazarian

I have a soft spot for his TNA work, but his TNA doesn't factor into his ROH work. I don't think he's been very good. Daniels smokes him.
