So I hadn't seen him since he left NOAH, and I kept hearing about his miracle title reign and how improved he was. Today I watched his Champions Carnival match with Joe Doering, which an intelligent poster in the MOTYC thread gave ****3/4 to. Maybe it's the wrong match to be introduced to a guy - maybe I'm missing references to past matches, or he shows more against guys his own size. But I didn't see any distinct charisma, unique offense, or signature style to him. Even his bicycle knee thing looked less impressive than when someone like Kenny Omega does it. He came off like a seasoned Yoshi-Hashi, which isn't bad, but isn't great.

I hope this doesn't come across like I'm ripping the guy. I don't mean to at all.

AJPW fans: what do you like about him? I'd like to understand since he's clearly got a following.

His match with The Bodyguard over month ago was way better. I think the dude is awesome. He is got that young cocky attitude. I also liked his match with Jake Lee.
