Japanese wrestling - could someone explain this to me a little better?
I watch well rated puro matches occasionally, know the basics of Japanese wrestling history (Baba's AJPW, Misawa's Noah, Inoki's IGF, NJPW, etc), am really entertained by DDT's product, but that's about it. I have no idea of how a rank of the most important japanese wrestlers of all time would look like.
Could someone explain it to me? Where do Muta, Inoki, Misawa, Baba, Liger rank? Who was more important? Should I be familiar with any other name that made an impact as the men I mentioned before?
What was the importance of WAR for Japanese wrestling? What is the role of Zero-One, DDT and HUSTLE nowadays?
By the way, where do guys like Hayashi, Kenta, KENTA, Shiozaki, Último Dragón, Nakamura, Tajiri and Funaki rank among the all time japanese greats?
