    Im wondering if they will ever make any connection back to his old characters considering he wont look any different

  • Ice Cold The Fake Austin

    so they are two lord tensai. I prefer sakamoto than a train.

  • Dangerous Lee

    Prince Albert as “lord tensai”?? This is like Tom cruise playing “the last samurai”. Are you serious bro?!?

    • A2H

      I actually loved that movie!

    • the arbiter

      Im guessing you didn't see that film. Tom Cruise was not the last Samurai, Katsumoto played by Ken Watanabe was.

    WHY???? I hate when It when wwe do these stupid gimmicks that everyone knows will bomb……….. Boogeyman, mordecai, nailz, repo man, mantaur – the list just goes on & oooooonnnnnn!!!!!! They should just bring him in as muscle for another wrestler OR………… as someone to take over takers legacy – he could be ‘trained’ by taker in the ‘dark ways’ and have a name like DOMINION or something & be the next big thing……….. LoL that ones been used before ;)

  • ol skewl fan

    for every 10 bad gimmicks ,there are 2 -3 good ones that make it, Undertaker,Mr Perfect, Big Boss Man,Demolition(who were LOD ripoffs who had a really good run), Yokozuna(not even japanese), Razor Ramon, Goldust, Val Venus, truth is you're never gonna know whats gonna fly untill you try it, case in point the Funkasauras.

    Yep – I agree sometimes gimmicks do get over VERY well, but the thing is they have to be inspired……… A huge, bald, hairy, pierced & tattooed guy should not become an homage to Japanese culture lol As for Brodus clay………. A re hash of mabel & mo, ernie miller & Rikishi……….
