I love Kenta Kobashi I've made a thread a few weeks ago and mentioned that he is my favorite of the four pillars. In this thread I just want to see who else appreciates Kobashi, and see what do you guys think of him and post your favorite match of his.
One thing I would like to add about Kobashi, is I truly believe he's one of (if not the) greatest at selling of all time. I mean good lord, outside of maybe Ricky Steamboat in a few others, I can't think of another wrestle that has the facial expressions that's able to display pain like Kobashi has, When his leg is worked on, after he takes moves to the outside, or getting suplexed on his head, his expressions are just top-notch.
I love his moveset, and he has one of my favorite moonsaults of all time, and for someone built like a tank, he almost moves like a damn lightweight.
Out of all the heavyweight wrestlers, I've seen in Japan, he's by far my favorite. His story of overcoming cancer, coming back and still having 5 star matches, and classics is amazing, and inspirational.
And let me add my favorite Kobashi match for me is his one Vs. Akiyama in 04. I know its not one of his classic 90s matches but some of the spots of that match still continue to take my breath away.
So yea, thoughts on Kobashi, do you find him one of the best sellers of all time, and your favorite match of his?
