    I don't buy into Zero's opinion that Zack hasn't been good in New Japan, but he's definitely not been as good as Kota has this last 12 months and has less great work on the Euro indies as well this year. Kota with an easy vote here.

    I'm all about ZSJ tbh. I think he's a fantastic heel and I've really come round to him as a heavyweight. But Ed's right. Ibushi is the man and I doubt I'll ever be down on him.

    Kota Ibushi is one of the few lights for me in NJPW right now.

    Ibushi has been better in-ring in the last 12 months. Not that ZSJ hasn't been good in NJPW, just that it's clear he's significantly better elsewhere and isn't a good fit for most of NJPW's style. That said, ZSJ's promos are among the best in the world right now when they're in front of an audience that understands him. Ibushi though has had a great year in the ring against a variety of opponents. It's not as strong as if it had the first half though admittedly and the longer time goes on the G1 is most all he had, but in this case it was clearly far superior to ZSJ's against all the same opponents. It's hard for me to vote ZSJ when you have that direct comparison although I think there is a case the more I have looked at it.


    We can tell other people about...having faith. What we had faith in. What we found important enough to fight for. It's not whether you were right or wrong, but how much faith you were willing to have, that decides the future~
