Lord Tensai & Matt Bloom’s Return To WWE, Who The Rock Has Been Preparing With, Wrestlemania Predictions, Lower Card Workers In WWE

Why is WWE calling Matt Bloom, Lord Tensai? Why not just call him Albert or A-train again unless he is wearing an outfit?

WWE has big plans for the Lord Tensai gimmick, bigger than what Bloom accomplished as Albert or A-Train. His work has greatly improved during his time in Japan and the gimmick also carries more international appeal. What do you think makes people care more, a new gimmick with a cryptic video or a rehashed mid-card gimmick like Albert?

Who has The Rock been working out with to prepare for his Wrestlemania XXVIII match against John Cena?

The Rock has been working out with Curt Hawkins and Michael McGillicutty to prepare for his main event match against John Cena on Sunday. Rock recently put both over in a media interview with The Miami Herald.

Will you be making Wrestlemania XXVIII predictions?

I stopped posting predictions a couple years ago due to WWE attempting to find who was talking to me. Given the fact I get knowledge before a bout happens, it’s impossible for me to make predictions without a preconceived notion of what is in the plans to happen. The Blog Spot staff will be posting predictions and you will be able to comment on them after they are made.

Why do lower card workers such as Curt Hawkins stay in WWE. Wouldn’t they be better suited in TNA or Ring of Honor to get recognized?

WWE is by far the largest and most established professional wrestling company in the world. Why would a wrestler want to work anywhere else? While I can’t believe we’re talking about Curt Hawkins twice today, he and other lower card workers have the opportunity to get elevated. It’s an opportunity that few get and all it takes is a chance to change their career forever. Just take a look at what has happened to Hawkins’ former tag partner Zack Ryder. One thing everyone needs to realize is WWE can’t push everyone. There are going to be different levels of workers and it’s up to the lower card workers to take advantage of their opportunities when they get them.

    Lol darn! I thought it was my question that was answered! Apperantly someone else was wondering the same thing, but my question is actually a little better. Oh well we can’t have everything in this world. God bless!

  • John

    I also want to add that Curt Hawkins has the potential to be a main eventer! I see that it factor in him. Just like I see it in Tyler Reks and Mr. NoDaysOff D-Young! Btw D-Young, the dude has something that nobody in the wrestling world has…his amazing similarity to John Cena! If I was a writer, holy crap I would
    Have done this amazing storyline with D-Young and Cena to get DY over! Tyler Reks would have gotten over with the Rob Zombie like gimmick and Hawkins I see him as the next Edge!

    • paulw3000

      Dude, they’ve brought up the likeness between Darren young and Cena before….

      Reks and Hawkins are good workers, they just need to do something different to get recognised, however I don’t see them as main event calibre talents

      • learn2count

        I know what they should do to elevate Hawkins and Reks! The WWE should make Mcgillicutty, Hawkins and Reks 'Disciples' of Lord Tensai, along with Sakamoto, and have them fued with Cena, Ryder, Mason Ryan, and The Usos! Sort of like the Heenan family Versus Hulkamania in 86/87. That way, Tensai and Sakamoto get over ALMOST instantly, 6 lower-card guys get a push, and, since it seems they want to program Cena, Sakamoto and Tensai, why not add Cena's "Sidekick" Ryder in the mix?

        • John

          Lol Cena’s sidekick

          Actually it’s not a bad idea but I would scratch out Mason Ryan, McGuillicutty, and the Usos and have just Lord A-Train, Sakitume, Hawkins and Reks vs Cena, his sidekick Ryder and Cena’s illegitimate twin D-Young!

    • BigMike

      Cena made a joke the Darren was proof that his mother had a one night stand with Buckwheat

  • Ice Cold The Fake Austin

    maybe lord tensai is the new funksaurus? Planet of funk made in japan

  • Violet09

    I honestly am a fan of Curt Hawkins’ work. I think he could gain popularity if the people who run wrestling sites would talk about him more. Not top main event talent but upper mid card for sure.

    • John

      Yes! Yes! Yes!

        not to worry .they didn’t buy the company just to let it go bad .you will still find eclexlent mercedes quality engineered into chrysler .furthermore, they will probably spend alot of money to put in their own unique selling points and this means more toys or better quality or something

    • BigMike

      it has been said that Hawkins has the ability to eventually step into Edge's spot they have always had a similar look and everything

  • Russell

    Curt Hawkins,Tyler reks,micheal mcgillicutty,drew macintyre= need severe push

    • kevin

      Agreed.

  • The Breaker

    Curt Hawkins. lol

    If he's ever going to get over, the Brodus Clay squashfest treatment he's been handed has to end.

  • Ricky

    If I had a choice between the A-Train gimmick and Lord Tensai, I would chose without a doubt Lord Tensai. It carries an aura of mystery around it and could carry him well. This has happened with other workers in the past with positive results (K-Kwik to R-Truth is an example)

  • Karl

    I still laugh at Curt Hawkins’ name. Lol. It should be Kurt not “Curt”.

    • John

      I laugh at Karl’s name is sounds like Carl.

      • Bruno

        Nice one

  • @jblack424

    Ok I want to start with albert. I remember him as tag champs with I think tomko. I think it was on tna. I think if they can book him right he could have a nice run in wwe. Henry had a run and everyone loved it and albert has gotten better in ring from a couple youtubes and daily motions I saw. Hope he has a good run maybe a hw or wwe title reign who knows but everyone can admit they are interested in what will happen.

    Rock working with hawkins and joe henning aka milguilcutty or however you spell it. Henning will be a star one day.

  • John

    I'm very much looking forward to Wrestlemania this weekend, however i think the entire card is very predictable in terms of who will go over!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003405720088 Anthony

      I wish the undertaker will face onsemoe like stone cold or the rock But i know thats not going to happen thats why sometimes i hate the wwe because they dont bring back the legends Bi would really like the undertaker at wrestlemania to face his, brother kane I think that will be his last match!!!
