[8.0] "KUSHIDA is the ace of New Japan's junior heavyweight scene, he has a fun look, was part of a fun back to the future themed tag team with alex shelly- time splitters. He is someone who has an amazing work rate, my only concern is he has yet to truely feel like he could compete with heavyweights and has yet to have the opportunity to."

[10.0] "One of the best going today in my eyes cannot wait to see how he fairs in the G1 this year working with the heavyweights"

[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"
JMTheBadOne wrote on 13.06.2015:
[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."

[2.0] "Ordinary wrestler. only I can also tell it. doesn't cling absolutely anything. mediocre receptions, mediocre gimmick. very boringly, recently it is given listen much, but it is undeserved in team Time Splitters the main force is Alex Shelley!"
