    Stupid. WWE gives more money.

  2. James says:

    Perhaps he actually has pride for himself.

  3. Science & Violence says:

    Not everyone wants to work for that goofy circus.

  4. rob_mor says:

    Maybe he’s Xenophobic.

  5. Lolstoryline says:

    Yoshi Tatsu is having a great run in WWE eh?

  6. Lolstoryline says:

    Not really stupid. He will prolong his career staying away from WWE.

    Nobody asian has had a chance in WWE since Tajiri.

  7. Mr. Black says:

    Good move. He has a top spot in new japan, something I could almost guarantee he would never get in the WWE. If I was in his position I would much rather be taken seriously while being paid less than to work as a stereotype and get paid more.

    how is he stupid….he knows he has a spot where he is now…and theres no gaurantee he would have that in wwe…..its not about money and it being wwe, its about having pride and wanting to be about to showcase his talents

  9. Shockmaster Suplex says:

    Sure miss Tajiri!

  10. Boogeyman says:

    Smart man! Alberts doing real good since he left Japan eh?

    Kaientai 2.0

    Nathaniel, money isn’t everything. Especially if you’re trying to live your dream. And have you heard of the saying “more money, more problems”? That definitely rings true for quite a few in the WWE. I agree with the others, he’s a smart man. Very smart.

    Seriously a lot of people on here make me embarrassed to be a wrestling fan. Some of these responses just make me feel like i walked into a one-year-behind classroom.

  14. Paul says:

    I think he did the right thing. At least New Japan has been giving hungry young lions like Okada a chance while WWE constantly subjects us to overexposed and overpushed bores like John Cena and Randy Orton.

  15. rainmaker says:

    I wished he went to the WWE. I think he’d be a top guy since he’s a younger Orton.

  16. Jay FX says:

    Not a bad word to say about TNA in all of this? I’m amazed, they RUINED this man.

  17. Kerry says:

    Some people actually want to be professional wrestlers instead of sports entertainers.
