Jushin Liger's Evaluation (2015)

His name is Jushin Liger and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former WCW Light Heavyweight Champion. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. Look - With the mask, long hair, and full bodysuit it was hard to not notice the guy.
  2. In-Ring - Able to adapt to multiple styles, had classic matches with Brian Pillman and The Great Muta.
  3. Shooting Star Press - An amazing move, that he innovated.
  4. Name - The name alone was getting 5's from you guys.
  5. All-TIme Greats - One of the best ever, holding multiple titles, an innovator, and popularizing the Cruiserweight division in the U.S.

Best comment comes via Phil X:

"Anything less than five is just criminal. There shouldn’t even be a poll attached to this."


What you loathed:

  1. No WWE - Unfortunately his U.S. exposure was limited by never getting to the WWE. Not to say his run - Creatively - would have been too amazing with WWE's track record, a short run would have been cool to see.
  2. Brain Tumor - Somehow, he worked through having one, eventually getting surgery. Afterwards, Liger had to change up his style to lessen the toll wrestling took on his body.
  3. MMA Fight - Probably best to stick with pro wrestling.

Best comment comes via hellotherefinnitami:

"That I used to think his name was Justin, now Justin Liger will forever be how he is known in my mind."

On to the poll! With 223 votes, Jushin Liger's average score is 4.5

Thanks, Cagesiders! We'll be back on Sunday to recap with updated poll scores and the best comments of the week.

Until then!
