When people think of top stars in New Japan, they often forget Tetsuya Naito, but when looking at his body of work over the past few years, it's impossible to deny him a place on this list. Tranquillo is a way of life for Naito, and when watching New Japan, it's impossible to not be drawn to Naito's charisma, unique personality and in-ring style, and it's made him one of the biggest stars that the company has ever created.

Sure, he's often been overshadowed by the likes of Okada, Omega, Styles, Nakamura and Tanahashi, but Naito has carved out a great career for himself, and will be the main event in Japan for years to come. He's been with New Japan since 2004, and while he's only been to the top of the mountain once, Naito is everything that professional wrestling is supposed to be, and whether he achieves Championship success or not, he'll always find a place on this list.
