Eh, depends on what you are talking about. As for the "weekly" shows and such I would give All Japan a slight edge, but when it comes to main shows I give it to NOAH, but All Japan is close. The one thing I will say about All Japan that I like more than NOAH is they know who to push and when. Unlike NOAH, who wants HAYATA to be a thing

Yuma Aoyagi is the new Triple Crown Champion.

All three of AJPW, NJPW, and NOAH's top championships are held by wrestlers who came out of the AJPW system, which is a wild stat.

Sounds right. When he was in charge AJPW wasn't doing the best and almost closed.
