It felt that for a decade that Jun Akiyama was always in the shadow, and it was true as he competed in All Japan where Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Akira Taue and Stan Hansen dominated throughout the 1990’s. This isn’t to say that he didn’t have his moments, as Akiyama received title shots at the Triple Crown and had a successful tag team with Misawa and later Kenta Kobashi.
It was with Misawa, however that he received his biggest opportunity as he joined him in the mass exodus to join him in his creation of Pro Wrestling NOAH, where he would become one of the top guys and win their World Title. He would eventually go back to All Japan, and in his 40’s would finally win the Triple Crown, and he now serves as the promotion’s president.
