    Naomichi Marufuji: I know nothing of Marifuji, but when Noah is brought up in a puro conversation, he's usually the first name mentioned.

    Go Shiozaki: Again, AJPW is also out of my depth but I've heard the name plenty over the years.

    Takeshi Morishima: See above.

    Jun Akiyama: I have seen some Jun matches. He's good. 7 I guess? he's good but I've never sought his matches out.

    Taka Michinoku: 6. I respect what Taka has contributed to wrestling, and he can still go fairly well in the ring, but I don't go out of my way to watch his matches.

    Funaki: 7 maybe. I prefer Funaki to Taka. Always did.

    Taiji Ishimori: 8. The more he grows and adapts to his style, the more I like him.

    Kota Ibushi: 10. Greatest wrestler on the planet in my mind.

    Evil: 8. EVIL is good, but he has his diminishing returns in-ring. I do like him though and do often look up his tag and singles matches.

    Hirooki Goto: 6. It was way less before. I've actively skipped Goto matches, but over the past few years he's gotten a bit of a fire in his step and he's fun to watch if he's on a card.

    Zack Sabre Jr.: 8. ZSJ is a great technical wrestler, and I do look up his work sometimes, but I'll rarely watch more than one ZSJ match in one sitting, and his style occasionally doesn't mesh well with others. Still, when a Zack match is good, it's good.

    Jonathan Gresham: 7. He got me back into watching ROH for like a month, and I do think he's a great and versatile wrestler. I'm glad he finally got a spotlight somewhere because he's been good for a long time.

    Tomohiro Ishii: 9. I'm drooling over some of his G1 block pairings this year. Ishii never gives half an effort in the ring. He seems to live and die by every match.

    Tomoyuki Oka: I haven't formed an opinion on The Great Okharn quite yet. He was a solid young lion with a great look, but I don't know if I'll like the gimmick or his style until he comes back from his UK excursion.  

    T.J Perkins: 7. WWE soured me on some TJP sadly. He's done well before and since the 'E, but I don't go out of my way to look up Perkins matches all that often anymore, nor would I tune into a show solely for him.

    PAC: 8. I like PAC. PAC almost single-handedly got me into Dragon Gate.  He's a solid promo, a solid worker, and a great high flier.

    Kenny Omega: 7.  I've never been big on Kenny Omega, but when he's on his game he's fun to watch.  I don't care for his promo style or general mannerisms altogether, but he can wrestle when he wants to.  No question.
