With that said, I approached putting this list together with almost every facet of each person’s accomplishments, transcendence power, character, skills, talents, cultural status, and over-all popularity in mind. So, without further ado, here’s a ranked list of the fifty greatest Japanese wrestlers of all time!

Recently, I came across a website that sells Japanese wrestling for really inexpensive prices. The prices range from $2.99 to $5.99. Some shows are downloadable while some of them are on DVDs. The stuff that is higher price means they are on DVD.
