One of the greatest entrances ever - Kobashi returns from cancer

  1. Listen to that crowd, listen to the announcers tearing up.

    Context: Kenta Kobashi (one of the greatest wrestlers to ever graze this earth, he was the Ric Flair of Japan) returned to Pro Wrestling NOAH after a bout with Kidney cancer (probably carrying it to a 5 star match). And damn did the crowd show him some love. The last two guys out there are true legends. Kobashi and before him the late great Mitsuharu Misawa (One of the guys argued to be the greatest of all time).
     
  2. The second greatest performer I've ever seen, if Misawa wasn't so godlike he'd be the greatest of all time.
     
  3. If you don't get chills watching that, you have no soul for sure!
     
  4. Kawada, Tenryu, Hansen, Inoki, Choshu and Hashimoto... Shit, the more I watch them, the more I realize it's a tough, tough competition. But I'd still put Misawa at the throne, but not by much. There are days where I prefer Kawada's school of selling, or Tenryu's grumpy punches.
