Masato Yoshino

A lock. One half of perhaps the best tag team of the 2000-2009 decade, and a guy who always delivers huge in a big match scenario or when it's his turn at the top for a Dream Gate run. One of the most fluid & smooth workers I've ever seen.

Want to throw up 3/5/10 matches to watch?

His entire Dream Gate run from late 2014 to early 2015 was considered pretty great. Tag stuff w/Doi I'll have to come back when I have more time, because those matches were about a decade ago at this point so I'd have to research dates, etc.

Guess I didn't post in Yoshino's thread. Odd.

 

Came here to make a point that I made on Twitter that Yoshino gets overlooked as a great worker because his speed is looked at as more of a gimmick than an asset to his overall ability. We have his entire career on tape (I don't think his Toryumon Mexico stuff has ever popped up but I've barely seen anything from there) and from the first T2P show, he's been very good. In recent years, he's become one of the more well-rounded workers in wrestling. It's led him to becoming the most popular wrestler in the company, or at least on the same level as CIMA.

 

I think he's one of the better tag workers ever, also. His speed is a great asset in singles matches and it makes his tags standout in a company where tags tend to blend together.

 

He's a very smart, dramatic worker. I think he has the best "kickout at 2" ever. No one milks that as much and even in front of dead crowds, that seems to get a pop. He's a Top 50 guy for me.
