[10.0] "An incredible young, fresh, new 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] "Definitely one of the best wrestler in the world (top 20 in my opinion). Kota ibushi is very agile (he is the best at doing the Phoenix Splash) and a good stricker too. This man is my pick to win the New Japan Cup 2015. I want to see a rematch of the last Wrestle Kingdom ! Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Kota Ibushi was sooooo good !"

[10.0] "Currently rising the ranks of New Japan, Ibushi is a stalwart for the DDT promotiom in Japan. A 3x IWGP Jr. Heavyweight champion and one of the most exciting wrestlers going today."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 15.02.2015:
[7.0] "Kota Ibushi is a standout from DDT who is now an integral part of New Japan Pro Wrestling's Jr. Heavyweight division. He had a pretty good feud with Prince Devitt which came to a solid finish at Wrestle Kingdom 8. He showed resilience after injury and is now competing in the heavyweight division for New Japan."
llboxing wrote on 28.01.2015:
[8.0] "Awesome high flyer. Provides thrilling highlight reel spots in every match. Good looking and good physique. Probably the best junior heavyweight in New Japan and trying his hand at the heavyweights now. With his matinee idol looks and chiseled physique, he certainly looks like a main eventer. Has shown wicked intensity in recent months. Refuses to be helped to the back after he loses. Also a great striker and even has good power moves for his size. The downside? He needs to improve his promos. Also at age 32, one has to wonder how much longer he can continue to rely on being a spot monkey. He needs to be more well rounded and develop his ring psychology. He's also a bit injury prone and should tone down his style. His relatively small size might keep him away from main event status but hopefully not. His high quality performances and great look might be enough to break the glass ceiling."
Zero wrote on 24.11.2014:
[6.0] "I'm going against the grain here, and I really WANT to like Ibushi. But in the end this is a guy who just has to get all his stuff in, with little concern for any sort of psychology or taking into account the rest of the match. Also don't see him as a world class technical or mat-based wrestler at all. Decent strikes but not top tier in puroresu. I will say if you value spectacular moves Ibushi is your ticket because he's certainly an elite flyer with moves that can dazzle you, as well as a great wrestler to show non-wrestling fans and can win them over. Just not for a more jaded fan like me."

[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."
