He makes the vets look like pimps & at the same time really wins the crowd over with his Inoki style fighting spirit. Shit's great to watch ...
It's gonna be crazy when he finally gets that first big win of his.
New Japan's young lions are awesome, but Komatsu is my favorite as well. But honestly, NOAH's Hitoshi Kumano is the best YL in all of Japan, in my opinion. But, I think All Japan's Naoya Nomura is gonna surpass them all in few months.
