[10.0] "Since I started watching New Japan Pro Wrestling on a once in a while basis, I've really become a big fan of Tetsuya Naito! I've really gotten to easily see and know his moveset so quickly and his work in the ring is so tremendous! Plus he can also wrestle with somebody who is already phenomenal like AJ Styles and make him look like a million bucks! Also he has like a reverse Red Arrow looking finishing move which I really like too! To me, Tetsuya Naito has the whole package and has everything it takes to be the IWGP heavyweight champion and I hope he does hold that belt eventually!"

[10.0] "Let's get the bad out of the way first: Naito is not the greatest seller to step into the ring and his look, despite him being a face in theory, gets him more heat than respect. Right, now we've parked that, let's talk about one of the best wrestlers in the world right now. Let's talk about someone who tries every single match to work for the good of the match. He is so selfless: he can take any bump, he can pop up anywhere to take a hit, he contorts his body in recoil in ways that others would not dream of. His moveset is the perfect NJPW main event moveset: it's smooth and it tells the story of his life - some shout outs to Mexico, to his days as a junior, combined with some heavyweight flourishes and submissions. I can see why he's not huge: he lacks that visual charisma of Tanahashi. But he deserves to inherit his throne as King Babyface because he's capable of similar feats in-ring. His 2014 series with Ishii, his WK8 title match with Okada, the G1 Finals night matches, the NEVER defence v Tanaka - these do not happen by accident! Sublime."

[8.0] "Kind of like the Jeff Hardy of New Japan except he has more of a technical move set and instead of having potentially bad matches, he's very injury prone. He has a bright future in New Japan but it looks like the crowd isn't really into him."

Chris Jericho: "You know, after the last couple of weeks, I've been hearing a lot of unflattering things about myself. I've heard that Y2J is a joke artist. I've heard that Y2J is not a big time pressure player. And I've heard that Y2J can not win the big one. That's...Read on!
