313. Hayabusa
While Hayabusa was not often seen in large wrestling promotions, the legend of the man born Eiji Ezaki cast a large shadow.

With a combination of face paint and a mask, Hayabusa looked unique and combined it with a high flying and hardcore style.  He was a rock star in the Japanese independent world and should have had many more years in the ring.  A tragic in ring accident where he landed on his head following a failed lionsault ended his career…but not his legend.
