    El Satanico

    Awesome, thanks!

    El Satanico

    I honestly didn't know he was still an active wrestler. Although I did see a match between him and Dandy a few years ago that I liked. I'll see if I can find the Chicana match.

    Pet Peeves in Wrestling

    Excessive stalling. I don't mind when a heel tries to stall for the first minute or so, but anything beyond that I feel like screaming "DO SOMETHING!" The shocked face following a kick-out of a move that has never won a match is also ridiculous. Not so much of an in-ring thing, but the use of insider terms on commentary or in promos.

    I don't think I would consider KUSHIDA but I'm glad he has a thread because he really is very good. Great mix of technical and high-flying offense. Was at least a top 10 wrestler in 2016 and 2017.

    AEW Double or Nothing 2021

    So did I. Wasn't a fan of the overbooking in Archer-Miro or the three-way, but I think it worked here. For me personally it added a shred of doubt and drama to a match with a forgone conclusion.

    He was also responsible for scouting Bianca, Tay, and Jade to WWE.

    AEW Double or Nothing 2021

    Awesome! Thought this was the best show of the year so far. A bit too long and not thrilled with the booking of Ogogo-Cody or the three-way, but mostly everything delivered.

    Oh you're there live? Awesome.

    Good match even though it felt a bit odd to do this after Blood and Guts. Didn't expect IC to win but Sammy getting the pin was cool.

    "The Great Muta" Keiji Muto

    Muto is someone I plan to a deeper dive on because he definitely seems like a controversial pick. From the little I've seen, wrestling as himself he could be great but as Muta he relied too much on the gimmick and charisma. And while I haven't seen any of the matches, his current run as NOAH champ has been super polarizing.

    WWE-NJPW working relationship in the works

    So apart from letting Bryan work some dates, this looks to be much ado about nothing.

    Current New Japan

    Per Meltzer, Nick Khan has been in talks with New Japan about a possible partnership and make WWE the sole provider of U.S. content for them. On the one hand, I have no idea if they're in any real financial trouble. On the other hand, teaming up with the most creatively bankrupt promotion that wants to monopolize wrestling seems like a bad idea.

    I like all 3!

    Cactus Halloween Havoc, probably the Dome match against Misawa, maybe Jun? I also really like the Starrcade match with Flair.

    Katzuhori Shibata

    I would definitely recommend the matches with Jun, Fujita, Tenryu, and Kawada for a glimpse at early Shibata.

    Stan Lane

    I'm considering Stan as well. I love the Fabulous Ones and the fact that he did that as well as the Midnight Express warrants consideration.

    Ric Flair

    Looking at that pace working championship matches, it's amazing his body didn't give out sooner. I guess landing on his shoulder added years to his career.

    Bret Hart

    Well said and is pretty much my conundrum with Bret.

    Hiroshi Hase

    I haven't seen his entire AJPW run but count me as one who enjoyed it. Especially the Kobashi match.
  22. Boss Rock

    Yuji Nagata

    Even though his output has diminished due to being an undercard guy now, Nagata is still very good. I've also enjoyed most of what I've seen out of his 00's work, so he seems like a lock to me.

    Triple H

    Agreed that there was a good wrestler buried under all the insecurities and ego. There's an alternate universe where he learned the correct lessons from Flair by bumping and selling his ass off and not making everything a self-conscious epic where he dominates.

    Hiroshi Hase

    Hase is probably a top 50 contender for me as well. Great junior worker who eventually became a great heavyweight worker.

    Yuki Ishikawa

    I really dig the Murakami match.
