[9.0] "Bloody amazing, i'm not really a big fan of hardcore wrestling, but for someone who's quite the entertainer, who does it twice as good in the 40s and 50s, and still gets the job done, i'm impressed. Great Promos, Great English, Onita is King!"
Sea Anemone wrote on 18.04.2014:
[10.0] "The charisma and the passion that Atsushi Onita wrestles with makes him truly one of the most amazing wrestlers of all time. His matches are full of the most emotion of any other match on the card. The guy turned deathmatch wrestling into an emotional roller-coaster that truly captivates the audience. One of the all-time best."

[9.0] "As the 1st graduate of the AJPW Dojo, it isn't hard to say that Onita had the right foundations from the beginning. Up until his 1st retirement in 1985, Onita was 1 of the best wrestlers in the Junior Heavyweight division, and if he hadn't been injured, he may have remained as such. However, this eventually led not only to 1 of the best comebacks in wrestling, but also to the increased popularity of Deathmatch wrestling in the 1990s when Onita formed the FMW promotion in 1989. For the next 6 years, despite his junior-heavyweight style becoming limited, Onita would go on to wrestle in some of the bloodiest, brutalist, and most barbaric wrestling matches that have ever been conceived. Landmine matches, exploding barbed wire matches, electric cage matches, fire matches, Onita did them all. He took many the worst of the bumps, received hundreds of stitches and even once had barbed wire stuck in his throat. Some could argue that he was just some garbage wrestler who only did powerbombs, headbutts and DDTs. But he was a storyteller first. In every death match, he told a story, often starting slow, using in-ring psychology and holds, and therefore making the violence and finishers memorable when they happened. FMW is now long gone, and Onita is still doing these sorts of matches from time to time (even, for some reason, looking younger now). His glory days may be over, but he has left his legacy as being among the Masters of Hardcore Wrestling."

[9.0] "Onita in my opinion was always the king of hardcore. He's knows how to really entertain a crowd, and also knows how to piss off a crowd too certainly one of the best hardcore wrestlers ever."
