[10.0] "A big, burly Texan who knew how to talk, Stan Hansen was the prototypical powerhouse wrestler and became a megastar for both All Japan Pro Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. His lariat, force, and temper were absolutely fearsome (for both competing wrestlers and promoters - but only because he lived and bled wrestling. ) Though he wasn't as renown in his native United States, Hansen's accomplishments in the Western world include AWA World Championship and NWA/WCW United States Championship reigns."

[10.0] "Stan Hansen was one of those guys that made Japanese Puroresu watchable in Japan. Although he was born an American, people consider him a Japanese legend. He definitely deserves this rating."

[9.0] "Stan"Lariat"Hansen is one of the most popular wrestlers in Japan ever. He looked nasty, was nasty and a great heel. He had classic matches against the likes of Bruiser Brody, The Funks etc. His lariat easnt just a ordinary clothesline it was stiff and powerful. Stone Cold might be the most popular wrestler to come from Texas if you ask americans but ask some japanese they will say its Hansen"

[10.0] "Stan "The Lariat" Hansen. When it comes to wrestling, this is a man who rivals Stone Cold Steve Austin as being the greatest badass from Texas. When working in America, he was a strong heel, but his potential was barely scratched there. In Japan, to this day, Stan Hansen remains one of the best gaijin wrestlers they've ever had. His entrance was awesome. Due to his poor eyesight, his stiffness was accidentally legendary. His Lariat finisher was as stiff as the swing of a baseball bat. He is on the list of men who have body slammed the Andre The Giant. When he was into his 40s, he was putting on some of the best matches of his career. Great respect for the guy. Fun to watch, and he was great on the mic as well."
