Why I Love Wrestling: Kota Ibushi

Kota Ibushi, currently signed to both DDT and New Japan, is one of the best light heavyweight wrestlers in the world. He is a multiple time world champion in Japan, both singles and tag team, a Best of the Super Juniors tournament winner, a GO-1 Climax winner, and a multiple time “best of” winner from various publications. He is also a former K-2 karate tournament winner. He is known mostly for his high flying moves but has recently bulked up and added some more power to his offense. He is one of the most well rounded wrestlers you are likely to find in any promotion. He has an amazing presence in the ring and is simply a joy to watch. The “Golden Star” of New Japan is poised to breakout in a big, bad way in 2015. With NJPW matches being featured on TV in America now, Ibushi is about to become a household name.

Dan Ryan

Dan Ryan was once the most feared and respected luchador in the world until the "Great DDT Disaster of '85" where Dan unfortunately DDT'd his opponent so hard into the ground that he opened a gate to the underworld that let unholy things into this world. After that, Dan refused to wrestle anymore but he's found new life writing and talking about his favorite hobbies here at Geekade. He pens the weekly Why I Love Wrestling series, co-hosts The Stone Age Gamer Podcast, expertly pairs video games with beer, and much, much more. Dan is a personality that Geekade simply would not be the same without.
