SmoothS wrote on 11.08.2016:
[10.0] "Kota F'n Ibushi! This man leaves me speechless everytime I watch his matches, a total superstar from head to toe, it is written all over him, saying that he is one of the best in the world P4P is an understatement, fans that didn't know him prior to CWC/NXT don't even have to worry because he is blowing their minds right know. This man is pure gold."

[9.0] "Kota is great in the ring. He really is the full package, he's athletic he's a good ring technician he is quick and has impressive strength for his size. I really hope he gets signed to NXT then on to WWE."
The Chosen One wrote on 28.07.2016:
[10.0] "Fantastic wrestler. I usually hate the "Strong Style" fighting style but Kota Ibushi does it so well. He is also a very good high flyer and technical wrestler. Almost all of his matches are enjoyable like Vs AJ Styles, Vs Prince Devitt, Vs Low Ki for example. Overall this is one of the best wrestlers of all time."
Luv all wrestling wrote on 06.07.2016:
[10.0] "A golden star with many amazing matches to his name. He had a 5 star classic with a sex doll! His athleticism is nearly unmatched being able to work strong style, comedy, high flying or technical. His character arc feels pure and easy to root for. Really waiting for him to become the ace of ddt again, or wwe, nxt or njpw."
AMR wrote on 17.02.2016:
[10.0] "Incredible wrestler and high flyer. Has amazing matches against bigger and stronger opponents. From DDT to NJPW, he is amazing and I can't wait to see him back in the ring."
Six Three Times wrote on 13.10.2015:
[10.0] "Perhaps the greatest living high-flyer, and one of the most entertaining wrestlers I've ever seen. His aerial offense is unparalleled, his striking is great, and while Ric Flair may or may not have been able to have a compelling match with a broom, Kota Ibushi HAS had a wildly impressive match with a blowup doll. He can pull off a pitch perfect comedy match, and a proper 5 star match (see: Wrestle Kingdom 9) all the same. A true talent."
Mizzle Assault Ant wrote on 29.08.2015:
[10.0] "Golden star! I've loved Ibushi for many years, and now that he is getting his chance in the upper levels of NJPW it's the perfect time for everyone to get on board. One of the best flyers working today, and a great worker when grounded as well. Sky's the limit for this guy, maybe literally!"
Izin wrote on 16.08.2015:
[9.0] "An incredible talent. Has more than the ideal strength, agility, and speed for his size, and his moveset wows me again and again. Consistently delivers incredible matches and he's only on the way up from here."

[10.0] "Kota Ibushi is the type of guy that can make the worst wrestler on their worst day look like a million bucks. Every time he enters the ring he looks like he is fighting for his life."
