    Goto. New Japan continue to fuck botch how to book this guy and he's been involved in really dull angles over the past year but he's still a reliable guy to send out there. Jordan's improving and has the best hot tag in the business, but a hot tag's not enough to convince me to put him over Goto.

    Jordan really stepped up last year, I didn't see much of a future for him and lumped him into the Angelo Dawkins of the NXT roster who'll would be lost in the shuffle after every indy signing and be released without making a splash on NXT. Then his chance came with Gable and they gelled magnificently and as Nicky said he's got a hell of a hot tag on him.

    Goto has been horribly booked for the entire time period we're looking at. Was never given the chance to see what he could do as Intercontinental Champion as he quickly dropped back to Nakamura, was in a nothing match at Wrestle Kingdom, that bizarre attire at New Beginning, joining Chaos, losing to EVIL. It's been an awful time but he's had better matches than Jordan in spite of the booking.

    I'll go back and forth wondering myself on a few of these. Thankfully in this case Goto's easily both. Sadly being one of the worst booked wrestlers alive hurts him. Jordan's a good fit in his role but I'm not convinced he's much beyond that yet.
    How do I run? HOW CAN I MOVE ON?

    wrestler = worker

    not sure where the confusion there is


    voted Jordan. He's an impressive youngster who ticks a lot of boxes. Goto's always been a wildly inconsistant but largely mediocre Japenese heavyweight main event stereotype.

    I know that pain, Zero. When I started watching New Japan I thought he was gonna be something but 7 years later and he's still getting the rugged pulled out from his feet.

    There's no confusion, wrestler isn't synonymous with worker. Put them on a Venn Diagram and you'd have vital similarities and differences. Nash was never a good wrestler but as far as working goes he was something to strive for.

    I don't know if Nash is a good example of that but I get what you're trying to say

    Pro wrestling is a work, therefore all the 'wrestlers' are workers. The 'wrestling' is part of the work.

    Maybe that was true 15 years ago but now marks can get in the ring.

    the term 'mark' is about 25 years out of date at this point

    I've made more from wrestling than I've put into it.

    I can't really go back and forth about Goto not knowing how much of him you've seen in the last year, but I really liked a few Goto G1 matches and him vs Naito from the NJC was a great performance in a bad match.

    I really don't know what possible boxes Jordan checks. He's the clear second best half of an act that's slowly getting revealed as one note. Show me something different before we vote for him in something like this.
    How do I run? HOW CAN I MOVE ON?
