Re: Any Love For Noah.
It used to be my favorite promotion. Kobashi's title run was incredible, and arguably it hosted the best years of Akiyama's career. But for various reasons they just refused to get behind the new generation of stars for way too long. Morishima, Marufuji, Sugiura, and KENTA were ready way earlier but kept getting held off in favor of guys who were over the hill. Resultantly, it's hard for me to watch even now and see Marufuji and Nakajima as the legit top guys, as good as they are in the ring.
