Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists
I'd argue his 1990-1991 run belongs in the upper echelon of 'peak years' for a worker, much like El Dandy 1989-1992, Flair's entire 80s but namely his 1985 and 1989 year, Lawler from 82-87, Misawa 91-96, Taue's 1995 etc, Fujiwara's entire 80s, 1990 Liger etc.
He's had some memorable performances and is still excellent, but yeah Tenryu, Hashimoto, Kawada, Liger, Fujiwara, Fujinami (could do with a rewatch of his best stuff), Misawa, Kobashi (maaaaaaaaybe), Naoki Sano (huge fan of this guy and demand more of his work be uncovered) and The Destroyer would be closer to GOAT status as japan workers (and in Destroyer's case, where some of his best work originated from) IMO than Jumbo.
