[7.0] "Onita's an interesting beast. Contrary to popular opinion, he neither invented nor perfect hardcore wrestling (accolades which belong to The Sheik and Mick Foley respectively) but he did help to popularize it. While never an outstanding worker or doctorate of psychology by any stretch, he knew his niche well and could connect with a crowd beautifully when given a good opponent. He's the father of FMW and the prototype for guys like Tommy Dreamer."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 12.06.2015:
[9.0] "Simply stated, Atsushi Onita was the star for FMW back when the company was a viable alternative to New Japan and All Japan. Though he was made to withstand a beating, fans paid dearly to see it while he was rewarded for this by being FMW's most prolific champion. Went on to become a politician, but was forced to resign when he was caught having a threesome with a female staffer and a Japanese porn actress - Needless to say, he has charisma!"

Chris Bosh: "As many of you may know, me and Scott, Arrogance, the greatest tag team in PWG history, lost the tag titles. Now, what a tragedy. But I just wanna make it very straight and clear that I wasn’t the one who got pinned. It was Scott... and Scott, shame...Read on!
