[10.0] "Kota Ibushi is one of the best and most popular Japan has to offer, he's right up there with people like KENTA, Nakamura, Okada and Tanahashi. I heard a rumor that he has to retire as a result of his second concussion. I hope this isn't true, but I expected something like this to happen since he overdoes himself by working at multiple promotions."

[10.0] "Recently started watching puroresu... and man oh man, I have never been so impressed. Especially with this performer, Kota Ibushi, the "Golden Star". His match with Ishii at the Back to the Yokohama Arena event was astounding. Not only is he a fantastic aerialist, but he can dish out a lot of strength and toughness with heavyweights like Ishii."

[10.0] "I've started to get into watching New Japan Pro Wrestling for a month now and within that short span of time of watching their product, Kota Ibushi has really caught my attention in such an amazing way! I love his moniker being known as the Golden Star! That nickname fits him so well! After watching his incredible match he had with Okada earlier this month, that match confirmed to me that Ibushi is not only one of THE best talents New Japan has on their roster right now, but he's one of the best Japanese wrestlers I've ever seen period! From his Phoenix Splash to his great high flying abilities to his technical wrestling skills to his unbelievable innovative offense that leaves you marking out if you've never seen anything like what he can do before, everything this guy does in the ring is tremendous and looks perfect as hell!"
DeathPool wrote on 30.01.2014:
[10.0] "The hardest working man in wrestling today is also the greatest high flyer, Kota Ibushi! I don't like Prince Devitt but even he could have a great match with Ibushi, along with the five star match Ibushi had last year with the great Minoru Suzuki."

[10.0] "Great all-around wrestler. He can fly, strike, he can be technical and even has a good arsenal of power moves. Very fun to watch and is one of the best Jr. Heavyweights in the world."
Leone wrote on 16.05.2013:
[10.0] "Unbelievable high flyer. Absolutely unbelievable. Kota Ibushi has some of the best reversals and sequences I have ever seen in professional wrestling. He is easily the best wrestler in DDT, and is in the history books as a holder of the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. To go along with his high flying skill, he is also very strong for his size, is an excellent striker, has some very good technical wrestling skills, and as far as "the look" is concerned, he looks like a J-Rock star. This is 1 wrestler who should never go anywhere that waters down his high flying style. He is too fun to watch to be watered down."

[10.0] "I think that Kota Ibushi is the best Junior wrestler all around the world. Fast, strong, athletics.. He is one of my favourite."
