[10.0] "Not giving Jun Akiyama the full ten points is criminal imo. The guy is basically the greatest ring technician to come out of Japan, and has a number of classics on his name. Even in 2015 he's still going at the age of 46. Jun is amazing."

[10.0] "This guy is very impressive during his run and his moves were innovative at the time like the Exploder Suplex and great tag team specialist with a lot of different partners. He did have a lot of great matches with the likes of Misawa and Kobashi. He has the best entrance music of metal."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 10.06.2015:
[10.0] "Jun Akiyama was groomed by the best, so it should be no surprise that he went on to play a prominent role for both All Japan and NOAH. Though his work with Kobashi and Misawa remains endearing to fans, Akiyama's accomplishments for both feds were abundant and prolific; regardless if he was used in a singles or tag setting. Had, with out a doubt, one of the most metal entrance theme songs ever!"

Leone wrote on 12.09.2012:
[10.0] "An incredibly good wrestler, but also quite an unlucky one in a way. He was the youngest of the AJPW famous five in the 1990s, and unlike the other 4, he never wrestled Jumbo Tsuruta when Jumbo was in his prime. He also didn't hold the Triple Crown until 2011, 11 years after he stopped working there full time to join NOAH. In NOAH, he was (and is) a main-eventer - But despite being GHC champion and Triple Crown Champion, 2 of his reigns ended in less than 5 minutes, after being booked to look dominant for a number of months before that. He is a fantastic tag team wrestler, with a number of 5-star matches to his name, and he is also an innovator, with the Exploder (T-Bone) Suplex, Wrist-Clutch Exploder Suplex and the Blue Thunder Driver being moves that he effectively created for Pro Wrestling. With age, comes experience, and Akiyama has more experience, memorable matches and accomplishments than a lot of other 20 year careers."
