Kushida is the Best Super Junior of 2015!

Kushida (sometimes romanticized KUSHIDA) is one of the best light heavyweight wrestlers in the world today. Trained by Tajiri as the breakout star of the now defunct SMASH promotion, he moved on to New Japan Pro Wrestling a few years back. Since that time he has most famously been the tag partner of Alex Shelley in the always amazing Time Splitters. He even gets to rock an awesome Marty McFly jacket every now and then.

For the last couple weeks, he has participated in the always great Best of the Super Juniors tournament put on by NJPW every year. He performed amazingly well in his Block, topping the chart and moving on to the finals against an American independent stalwart Kyle O'Reilly. The result was the biggest match of both young wrestler's career as they main evented a New Japan card.

Check out the awesome action and see why Kushida deserves more attention both in Japan and internationally.
