[10.0] "There's been a lot of talk about certain people being the best wrestlers in the world and this man should be in that conversation he has star written all over in all caps no less, he's got the size, agility, moveset and just exudes charisma and yet he's still only 28 years old, I remember when he first turned heel in aew Don callis proclaimed him the best Japanese wrestler claiming that he was better than okada, tanahashi, mutoh and many others quite frankly I think when it's all said and done he might be mentioned in the same breath as them if not eclipse some of them. Everything this man does is pure gold his moveset isn't exactly the fanciest in the world but dammit he makes them look like they are! his arching German suplex is the best around without a doubt and he even makes you slightly believe that his blue thunder bombs could very much end a match just because of how beautiful they are despite how many times they've been kicked out of. If this year comes to an end without Takeshita as international champion then something is wrong with the world."

"Absolutely lethal. This guy has presence. It's crazy, because I know how great he is, but I have watched wrestling so long, I forget just how IT Takeshita is. But then you watch his matches and you, mid-match, remember just how damn good and threatening he is as an opponent to any champion. Sky's the limit for him. If he can just grasp basic English, or integrate Japanese into his promos and just talk, he'll have that brand in the palm of his hand. Immensely talented."

[7.0] "A great in rign wrestlers, there's no denying how good Konosuke is inside the ring but I am hoping that being a aprt of the Don Callis famiyl really helps him connect to the American audience and he needs more than jsut being great in the ring to get ahead in the U.S. Rooting for him."
Rassle Fan wrote on 01.05.2024:
[9.0] "If there's anything holding him back it's the language barrier but since he's had Don Callis as a mouthpiece that's not a problem. Since he's come back to AEW he's been on a completely different level. I wish the booking was more favorable to him because he's in great match after great match but keeps losing them. Eventually he's going to need a big win to avoid fan apathy. As it stands, he's still one of the best active wrestlers anywhere."

[10.0] "One of my favorite wrestlers in the world, and a very underrated performer, the in ring level of Takeshita and his moveset puts him among the top 10 wrestlers in the world today. April 8 of 2024. I hope that Takeshita reaches his goals in his career. AEW has a rough diamond on his roster, in the american wrestling tv shows the charisma and mic skills are more appreciated than the ring style. But I would like to see Konosuke Takeshita be succesful."

[10.0] "No matter if he's in DDT Pro-Wrestling or All Elite Wrestling, Konosuke Takeshita is the man! He might just be the best wrestler under the age of 30, he's that good. Konosuke Takeshita is so fluent in the ring, he's so smooth with how he wrestles and moves around, the athelticism and strength he combines is amazing, how he can easily pull off moves like they're nothing never gets old to watch. He might even rival the likes of Bryan Danielson and Gunther for some of the best strikes currently, his flying knee looks so incredible everytime he hits it that I would totally be fine if he made it his finisher. I'm all fine with Don Callis being his manager, as long as he puts him over PROPERLY instead of just talking about himself. Anyways, it's nice to see Konosuke get around the language barrier and get over with the American audience, seriously, this guy is too good to be held back and not be pushed to the moon. If the cards are in his favor and with the right booking, him and Don Callis could be this generations The Great Muta & Gary Hart. Overall, incredible wrestler with amazing strength and skill, also has aura/charisma."

[8.0] "Very, very good. I would love to rate him higher but he's still fairly young and I feel he has a lot of room to grow and become an elite wrestler. The biggest thing that stands out is his size, he's not the typical Japanese wrestler, he's fairly big and he wrestles like somebody who is a Junior Heavyweight. I really feel like he has the potential to be a 10 rating in the future, I can't wait to see how he grows in AEW and hopefully he can do some stuff in NJPW. Takeshita in a G1 Climax would be so damn fun to watch and I think it would do him good to wrestle that many matches in a short amount of time, simply due to the fact it would give him more experience. Personally, I think he's a guy who will 100% be a heel, he doesn't really have the look that could help him thrive as a babyface, unless he becomes one of those "cool" babyfaces in the future."

[10.0] "If you're an AEW hater, I feel bad for ya holding that against Takeshita. I've enjoyed his work for years, where he was just a sexy guy who wrestled like a madman in DDT, to his first North American indie run where he killed it everywhere he went. Look, size, ability, moveset, in ring flow. I get it, if you take points due to him not talking a whole lot in North America. But that's why you give him a mouthpiece (even if it's currently Callous). He truly is an impressive young talent, who will continue to grow. I am terrified of what this man will be capable of when he actually hits his prime (which, during this generation of pro wrestling, seems like people don't hit until they're 37 or older)."

"Konosuke Takeshita is probably the most promising wrestler in the world under the age of 30. I have found his recent booking in AEW to be shocking, as theres no reason to waste his time with a faction that lost all relevancy months ago. An incredible in-ring talent and a natural babyface, Konosuke Takeshita is a world champion in the making. (9/10)"

UltimoMuta wrote on 18.01.2024:
[9.0] "My favorite match archetype right here. An underrated banger and a match I was personally waiting for all year after the Don Callis turning on Kenny Omega thing. Kenny Omega in a big match on a ppv? Consider the show stolen and give him match of the night every single time. This was a high octane match that felt like a G1 Climax encounter. Omega took some nasty bumps in this one. It's a stiff, explosive match full of high impact offense and it never slows down. Even the Don Callis interference was done well. Omega's unselfishness isn't talked about enough. Guy is always putting people over and making them look excellent while doing it. This was the biggest win of Takeshita's career and one of the best clean wins over a huge star in AEW's history. It's a shame Takeshita hasn't done much since."

[9.0] "Takeshita is a phenomenal athlete, the guy's ring-skill is pretty awesome, he can do it all. At a very young age, he has already shown incredible abilities, and established himself into one of the most gifted wrestlers around. The number of incredible matches he delivered at DDT is impressive."
SockyDocky8 wrote on 13.12.2023:
[7.0] "Takeshita is an average wrestler at best, no doubt he deserves to be in a top promotion but he lacks the charisma to be a great wrestler. He wrestling ability is decent but he could add a bit more to his arsenal. AEW kind of pushed him to the moon with him defeating Omega but havent done anything with him since."
skillgull wrote on 17.11.2023:
[8.0] "I haven't seen any of his DDT stuff, however based off his stuff in AEW he has been really good. In ring his amazing and is naturally charismatic and suave. I can't rate him higher because of poor booking and lack of DDT knowladge."
GoldLiger wrote on 09.09.2023:
[8.0] "In all honesty, I didn't quite see the hype for Takeshita in DDT. He clearly had the physical attributes to be a higher-card singles guy and he was a solid worker, but it felt like he wasn't matching the spot he was given by DDT as their ace to succeed the likes of HARASHIMA, Ibushi, & Omega. Outside of certain matches where he gelled with his opponent and told the right story, I found his work a little underwhelming, particularly in his very inconsistent limb selling and sometimes awkward match pacing, even in shorter tournament matches. His power offense is insane and always pops me when he pulls it off, but that can't be all you bring to the table. In AEW though, I think he's much more in his element. As a fresh face on the roster he was putting in some really great sprints on TV, and turning heel with Callis gave him something of substance to work with before being "guy who has good match on Dynamite" got too stale. His style matches the faster pace of AEW's TV-focused product that usually lacks filler barring a commercial break heat segment, and very few guys (outside of masters like Danielson who've made it work) will really expose that issue with limb selling he probably still has. I think he made the right call coming to AEW from DDT, and I can see him having a great run there before eventually returning to his home promotion a changed man."

[8.0] "Takeshita is a really good talent. He had a really good run in DDT. Surprised none of the bigger Japanese companies got to him before AEW did as I think he could have been a main event player. In the ring he does everything right and I can't remember a Takeshita match I did not enjoy. He is still young and has a lot of potential. His run with Callis has been much better than his face run. Thinks he needs a manager in the US at this point in time."
deceivr wrote on 17.07.2023:
[8.0] "The amount of times I laughed at him because of his name before seeing him would make me feel like Satan; I wasn't laughing by the time I saw him kick ass in 2017. For starters, Takeshita was brought up as the next big thing right from the get-go despite him having the build of a hickory stick. As soon as he bulked up and started to adapt to the conditions that he was in, Takeshita was ready for the big time. His run in DDT is, arguably, the greatest in company history; his matches with the likes of Shuji Ishikawa, Jun Akiyama, Tetsuya Endo and Kota Ibushi are some of the greatest in company history. When he signed with AEW to a dual contract, I was 50/50; were they going to make him their Okada and put him in neat spots, or would they brick them down? Thus far, we still don't know; he still is literally fresh to the fullest extent and there is no rot in this man. Right now, it seems quite neat to state that he is still the future of the business, whether it be in a positive or negative is completely up to the hands of time."
bisho wrote on 24.06.2023:
[10.0] "The next big thing of Japanese wrestling of course. I can imagine him being a star like Tanahashi and Okada. He has the talent of wrestling which not many have. his matches are an example of what wrestling should be. don't know if he can cut good promos or not. but when he says those Japanese short sentences on Dynamite. he looks cool and badass af. Don Callis will take care of the segments and these things. but when it comes to the in-ring work. he is one of the best today"
incujoni wrote on 11.06.2023:
[9.0] "Takeshita is a very talented wrestler, charismatic and good at selling, as well as using his size advantage. He really is an allrounder since he also moves fast as hell and does some pretty impressive stunts. His recent heel turn is pretty intriguing so I expect to see some new tricks from him and I hope AEW doesn't mess this up. Really miss him in DDT though, he was one of the stars."
F0ZZY wrote on 21.05.2023:
[8.0] "Takeshita is one of the best at his age IMO. He moves in such a versatile and quick manner that it is sometimes hard to keep up with him. He is the future of professional wrestling and should hold some kind of mid card title in the next year or two."

My favorite match of his is against Kazusada Higuchi in DDT."

[9.0] "Fantastic young wrestler with all the crucial tools needed to succeed. The former future Ace of DDT, Takeshita has made a big splash in AEW over the past year, having great matches with the likes of Claudio Castagnoli, Bryan Danielson, Mike Speedball Bailey, Eddie Kingston, Jon Moxley and others. He has an electric in-ring presence and a special connection with the crowd. This kid is the future."
CoolKyle wrote on 12.01.2023:
[7.0] "Takeshita is a big deal because hes a Japanese heavyweight who is young and has a lot of time in ring already. He has some polish and technique but has not reached his full potential in many ways. Fans glob on to that. He also has an odd, relatable personality. Hes basically the next Okada in many US fans eyes, or at least should be. Takeshita always worked a very "go-go-go" style in DDT. It was normally frustrating to watch him dismiss the little things some of his opponents wanted to work into a match in order to get into a big trading spots sequence or go full steam ahead. I've liked his US work much more than his DDT work in the past 4 years or more. Dude has to tools to do anything he wants in a wrestling ring, I'm more than happy to see him wrestle different opponents and see what he ends up becoming in two or three years."

[10.0] "Konosuke Takeshita is this generation's Mitsuharu Misawa. Every time I watch Konosuke's matches and I see his poise, his seriousness, the way he carries himself, and his offensive moveset (such as the Elbows & the Flying Corkscrew Lariat), I am deeply reminded of Mitsuharu Misawa. There is nothing wrong with that as Misawa was The Man. I also see Konosuke in much the same light. Konosuke Takeshita is also The Man. He is definitely one of the best professional wrestlers under the age of 30 in the world today and he has to be the very best native born Japanese wrestler under the age of 30 as well. He is also a member of 37KAMIINA, which is the most dominant faction in DDT and they somewhat remind me of The Elite. When Konosuke's career comes to a close (which is sure to be decades away), he is bound to have a jaw dropping resume of great to instant classic matches and he will have achieved a true Hall of Fame career as well. UPDATED: To see Konosuke translate so well to North American Mainstream wrestling also makes me happy, and further cements why he really is The Man. I also realized that he does remind me of the legendary Jumbo Tsuruta as well. UPDATED x2: Dude, AEW signing Konosuke is a very, very big deal. My eyes widened reading it. As of right now he is perfect for the AEW All-Atlantic Title. AEW just acquired one of the Top 2 best wrestlers under the age of 30 (the other one is none other than Will Ospreay, what a dream match that is, BTW)."

I've seen at least a dozen of matches from Konosuke Takeshita over the past year (in AEW), and I can already tell that he's one of the best wrestlers in the industry (or at least HIGH up there atm). Takeshita isn't even 30 years old yet, and he's had minimal exposure to a major wrestling company like AEW or NJPW too. He's only going to continue getting even better as an overall performer, which is a mindblowing but yet exciting thought since he's already tremendous enough in the ring."

[10.0] "During the five years after the departure of Omega and Ibushi from DDT, Konosuke Takeshita showed flashes of greatness and had a fair number of excellent matches, including a couple outstanding bouts. But it was not until 2021 that he really started to be awesome on a consistent basis. And by that, I mean performing at an elite level night after night, no matter where on the card he is. You might think that after his best year in 2021, he would regress a bit when on tour in America. But his campaign stateside has been even more productive than his work from last year. He is easily one of the ten best in the world today. If he were in New Japan, he would be winning the G1 and wrestling Okada in the dome. As is, he has the ability to expand DDT even further."

A multiple time KO-D Openweight Champion, he's done almost everything there is to do in DDT by the age of 26, and now he's starting a run in All Elite Wrestling, recently having great showings against Jay Lethal and Hangman Adam Page. He's got almost everything, great athleticism, he's tall, he's handsome, and he's already being compared to some Japanese legends. A great US run will only add to his legend."

[10.0] "Of all the annointed aces in Japanese wrestling (Kiyomiya, Miyahara etc.), Konosuke is the most suited for the role. He's gotten so much bigger over the years, adding a power game to his agility and striking. His KO-D Tag Championship match vs Eruption was a great start to the year, but then he took off, winning three tournaments. Konosuke also had a great tag match at CyberFight, a random but good AEW appearance, and started a great KO-D Openweight Title run vs Akiyama, Brookes and Okabayashi. In most cases, people would hate one wrestler being so showered in achievement, but this is truly the age of Takeshita, and he's up to the challenge."

Sure he could use some work in terms of psychology in selling, but he's ended up forming an incredible legacy and again HE'S TWENTY-FIVE. He still has almost a decade until he hits his prime, he and Kiyomiya are ridiculously talented at such a young age, it makes me wonder how amazing they'll be in their prime, but let's not get too ahead of ourselves. Anything can happen in wrestling. We have to just wait and watch him grow."

[10.0] "It'd be a little unfair to simply call him the Okada or Tanahashi of DDT, because Konosuke Takeshita has forged a niche all of his own. Seriously, he's one of the most brutal non-death match wrestlers in Japan, I thought he killed Tetsuya Endo no less then six or seven times when they wrestled at the Peter Pan event in 2019, and he was absolutely brutal to HARASHIMA in their recent title match. But it's not just his move set, it's his selling that makes him be able to switch from a brutal killer to a babyface I can root for. I've heard people complain about how he's over pushed, but I feel like he deserves every championship he wins for being DDT's steadfast ace."

Improving from someone who was bereft of charisma and had a stretch of meandering matches into someone who has shown a bit of personality and is now an extremely consistent wrestler. Still has a way to go but you can't deny his quality matches now."

[8.0] "I'm not someone who constantly follows DDT nor Takeshita, but every rare occasion that I watch him he always impresses the hell out of me. He's so young and already putting on such amazing performances. He occasionally has a few issues with long-term selling, but heck, what young wrestler doesn't? Everything else about him is fantastic. He has a great offence that mixes acrobatics and full-on power. I also think he displays his passion and determination extremely well. His real-time selling is also very good, since his facial expressions and bumps really do a great job showing how battered he can get, making him into a very sympathetic figure. I understand that Takeshita has quite a few detractors within the DDT audience, and I definitely see that in the sense that the crowd doesnt exactly go crazy over him atm. He's still so amazing for his age though, so I'm sure these such things will work themselves out with time and that he'll eventually win over the DDT fans entirely."

[9.0] "He had a break-out year last year, won the KO-D Openweight Title, and had some great match-ups with Miyamoto, Endo, and Ishikawa. He has such an explosive and unpredictable style in the ring and what he lacks in charisma, he more than makes up for in his execution."
