[5.0] "Despite a rather legnthly career, Naofumi Yamamoto (better known as Yoshi Tatsu to WWE fans and currently Yoshitatsu to New Japan fans) never ascended beyond the role of mid-carder despite runs with both New Japan and the WWE. In New Japan, he was booked under his real name and performed as you would expect for someone breaking into the businesses - A guy who isn't a pure jobber, but certainly obtained more wins than losses. After leaving New Japan, Yoshitatsu went to the WWE and was booked under the name Yoshi Tatsu. While initially given a strong run, Yoshi Tatsu was eventually pushed back to the opening matches on the card. Yoshitatsu went back to New Japan following the WWE under his current moniker, but was injured in a match against AJ Styles and has been out with injury ever since. Who knows what he'll accomplish if he makes a comeback."

[10.0] "One of, if not the biggest waste of talent WWE has ever (ehhhhhhvvvveeerrrrr) wasted, He improved in every match and his English was getting better. His match vs AJ Styles at NJPW power Struggle was a showcase of his talent."
Feli wrote on 10.11.2014:
[9.0] "Yoshi Tatsu has amazing in-ring skills and has a great character. He didn't have the best mic skills, but that's understandable due to lack of English. I'm disappointed in WWE for wasting his talent, but now he's off to do better things in NJPW and the independent circuit. I'm looking forward to what he is going to accomplish. His match with AJ Styles at Power Struggle 2014 proved that WWE wasted a potential star in their company. He looked amazing."
GabrielMaster wrote on 06.07.2014:
[7.0] "Yoshi did not have many opportunities to see him fighting because WWE confine his talent, despite having a visibly weak Mic Skill, I think he could make the talent in the ring because it is an agile wrestler."
