[10.0] "Over the past year my like of KUSHIDA has become a full blown love, the man is hitting a tremendous peak right now that everyone should take notice of. His Super Jr final with O'Reilly was a thing of beauty and he is bringing his skill to bear in every match he is in. Perhaps my favorite part is that you can clearly see the influences of Tajiri, an all time great who is often underrated. Bring it to the forefront, KUSHIDA!"

[Kommentar] "Very talented, deserved to win 2015 BOTSJ. Allround great wrestler, but I believe he is being held back. I think it is time for him to go solo"

[7.0] "KUSHIDA is a legitimate competitor in NJPW's junior heavyweight division. He served the distinction of co-holding the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight and IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Championships simultaneously during the Time Splitters push in Spring 2014. Though Time Splitters faces heavy competition in the current junior heavyweight tag division, that didn't stop KUSHIDA from winning the 2015 Best of Super Juniors tournament."
