399. Shinjiro Ohtani

Save for a few matches in WCW, Americans fans didn’t see much of Shinjiro Ohtani.  Those that did, saw a man who was one of the most influential light heavyweights of the 90s and early 2000s.

In Japan, Ohtani won the coveted J-Crown and with the relationship with WCW, he was the first ever Cruiserweight Champion.  Growing frustrated with the lack of attention paid to lighter weight wrestlers, he eventually co-founded (with Shinya Hashimoto) his own promotion (Zero One), and became a mogul in his own right.
