How would you rank these strong style wrestlers, from most talented to least?
Who are good to great strikers, but can also do other things, like grapple, and maybe even submissions. All at their peak.

Daniel Bryan - He's been top class since the early 2000s and still is.
Katsuyori Shibata - Strong Style died in NJPW when Shibata became inactive. He was the true embodiment of modern strong style.
KENTA - Was one of the best in the world in the mid-2000s.
Low Ki - Low Ki is notorious for burning a lot of bridges but unless you're Dave Hytmen, you can't deny how talented he was in his prime.
Asuka - Best female wrestler in recent memories beside Meiko Satomura.
Kyle O'Reilly/Tomohiro Ishii - Tied
Minoru Suzuki - Suzuki isn't the wrestler he once was (understandably so) but was really great in his prime. Still can pull out great matches from time to time at his old age.
Kushida/Kota Ibushi - Can't decide which one is better. They wrestle very different style but both really great at it.
Shinsuke Nakamura - I don't think Nakamura is the wrestler people pretend. He's really charismatic but rarely wrestle the strong style even if his name is "The King of Strong Style".
Davey Richards - Davey Richards had the potential to be one of the best in the world but sabotaged it with his bad in-ring psychology.
