[10.0] "if you have never watched Japanese Wrestling before you will only know the a couple of them including Jushin Thunder Liger. His image is so well known and he is easily the top 3 cruiserweights of all time"

[10.0] "All time great, no question. Innovative flier but perhaps even better on the mat, a masterful technician whose influence can be seen tremendously on multiple generations of workers. Still putting out good matches to this day, incredible longevity. Honestly one of the best to ever lace up, just amazing."

[10.0] "No clue why his rating's dropping. Just because he's putting over younger guys and is in opening matches? Come on."

[7.0] "A little bit overrated. Of course, a terrific wrestler, an innovator, but not considered as its main Japanese star. Although thank him very much for such a wonderful reception, which is one of the most beautiful, although there are no special maneuvers. Yes I'm talking about Shooting Star Press, great move."

[2.0] "I Gave Him A 2 Even Though The System Wouldn't Let Me, This Is The Third Time I've Tried To Post This Comment But I Dont See Anything So Good About Him, I Think He Is Overrated, The Attire Looks Too Bulky To Wrestler In And He Deserves To Be In A Cartoon, Not A Wrestling Buisness He's Wrestled To Long Guys (And Girls) Give Him A Break."

[10.0] "One of the greatest in the history of pro-wrestling. Jushin is in the top 3 biggest stars in the history of NJPW. in my opinion, the best high flyer history."
Oddark123 wrote on 06.01.2016:
[9.0] "Jushin Liger is a legend in the true sense of the word. He deserves the awe that accompanies his name. His influence and personal accomplishments across his career and all the places it has taken him is something to be proud of. If I hear Jushin Liger is wrestling I expect a solid match and it's always delivered. As his health and life changed Jushin changed with it and didn't suffer because of it. This man should always have a place in the wrestling business in some form."
Doctor Rags wrote on 05.11.2015:
[10.0] "To paraphrase a line from Pulp Fiction, there are Liger people and there are Tiger Mask people. Liger people can like Tiger Mask and Tiger Mask people can like Liger, but nobody likes them both the same. I'm a Jushin Liger guy. Liger is, hands down, the very best of the junior heavyweight (or cruiserweight, whatever you wanna call 'em) style wrestlers... ever."
