[10.0] "It's very appropriate that his character is an anime superhero, because this guy is capable of doing things that no other human could possibly do. What's more, he's been doing this for 30 years and is showing no signs of slowing down. He could still clean up in a major company, and I hope he does soon."
B Dazzle 96 wrote on 07.07.2014:
[10.0] "Jushin is a great wrestler. One of the best Jr. Heavyweights in the business. He is a staple of Japanese wrestling & pro wrestling in general."
SuperDragon wrote on 06.03.2014:
[10.0] "One of the icons of NJPW. I think he deserved to be in second place in the rating, even with all due respect to Paul Hayman"
CJ Dusk wrote on 09.02.2014:
[10.0] "Move for move one of the best wrestlers of all time and maybe the best Jr Heavyweight ever."
Yoyo wrote on 01.01.2014:
[10.0] "To say he's the greatest Jr. Heavyweight is an understatement; he's one of the best ever regardless of weight classes."
JourneybyTrain wrote on 21.12.2013:
[6.0] "Jushin Liger is a good junior heavyweight but I fail to see the brilliance of mediocre mat wrestling for 10 minutes followed by a missile dropkick. Still he's very consistent, versatile and has produced a couple of great matches (vs. Sano and the NJ/NOAH feud)."

[9.0] "Liger is possibly most unique luchador i've ever seen. With his thrilling highflyer moves, cool matches and incredible charisma, he really can entertain the audience."
