Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan
Really great job with this.
I'm a big Hirooki Goto fan. I'll agree with your assessment, but I don't find him overrated. He takes his gimmick seriously and comes of well. I I think he will get his run with the IWGP Heavyweight title, they've built up his little "So close, but so far" story up so much that he will win it eventually.
A friend of mine called him the next Tenzan, winning loads of tournaments, but not winning the top prize often unless a change up is needed. Seems accurate to me.
