Keeping up with the match that I found last month between Bryan Danielson & AJ Styles we shift gears to another current WWE Superstar. In my opinion, right now Samoa Joe has hit the prime of his career in the WWE and puts that on display every time he is on camera as he is gold every single night. During his early career he stood right with Bryan Danielson, Nigel McGuinness, Christopher Daniels, and other to build the foundation of Ring of Honor. Think about this Jay Lethal held the ROH World title for an astounding 427 days and was second on the list to only Samoa Joe who still holds the record for the longest title reign at 645 days.
I don't feel like I need to explain how good Bryan Danielson is or the fact that he is absolutely one of the greatest to step foot in the ring. The amount of passion that Bryan has for the wrestling business is amazing and we see that every night is in the ring. As for the other two KENTA has recently returned to his home country after a stint with WWE and we will have to see how he does in this years G1 Climax. Last but not least Marufuji has competed in All-Japan, New Japan and is still active in Pro-Wrestling NOAH where he has become a massive star. The appearances of both KENTA and Marufuji came thanks to a foreign excursion between Pro-Wrestling NOAH and Ring of Honor which shows how beneficial these working agreements are for both promotions. However, they are only beneficial when the promotion makes the incoming/unknown stars seem like a huge deal which is exactly what ROH did for each of the three men that appeared which included KENTA, Marufuji, and Kenta Kobashi.
