This isn't a poll.

The answer is yes.

Taguchi is pretty good about once a year.

I think he had a not bad match with Kenny Omega earlier this year?

It's not even the work that annoys me. It's just the gimmick. Every month he adds something new that's completely annoying and garners X-Pac heat with me. Like every time I see him it's just UGH.

like, if you're gonna go down this route homie, just stay in the opener and never compete for a title again.

He had one not bad match with Omega and one REALLY REALLY REALLY bad match with him.

He had a REALLY good match with KUSHIDA not a too long ago. By and large though he stinks.

He's the fucking worst. His whole gimmick is the goofy guy that literally nobody finds funny.

His ass-based offense thing is so awful too. I miss the days of "faux-Eddie Guerrero" Taguchi.

Gedo match at Korakuen was good, and so was the Jay White match 6/28. I liked one of the Omega matches and a few other BOSJ bouts.

He's a weird man.

I enjoyed him during the Fatasticamania as Pharao subtle rudo Taguchi. But generally and especially in singles matches he is the one guy on the New Japan roster whose matches I skip. The Gedo match was fine, but that was Gedo putting Taguchi on his back and dragging him to a good match.

He could really benefit from a heel turn. Maybe he'll clubber himself in the back of the head and forms a Bullet Club rip off. Would fit his brand of comedy and further my theory that he has PTSD from the Devitt turn

Is he really that bad? As a worker he's mediocre at worst, most people's problems with the guy seem to be his stupid goofy gimmick and the related ass-based offence. But have you ever thought maybe a lot of that "humour" is getting lost in translation?

I don't know how people in Japan take it.

from what I understand he's just as nonsensical to people in Japan too. But he gets okay crowd reactions every now and then. It's something I wonder.

Has Taguchi ever worked in DDT? He seems like he'd really like to work in one of those comedy matches that the weird YouTube "fans" attribute to the entirety of DDT.

Taguchi is getting to early 2000s El Samurai levels of go away heat
