    Hopefully KENTA doesn’t come to the WWE, they always misuse their Japanese talent in exception of Tajiri, they did well with him but other Japanese talent flop in the WWE.

  3. Deathedge says:

    What would really suck if he joined is that he probably wouldn’t be allowed to use the G2S… Wonder if they would let him do the inverted version of it.


    Kenzo wasn’t really a flop… Granted, that’s the only other guy I can think of…

    I also hope KENTA does not sign with WWE given their track-record with Japanese superstars. WWE has squandered so many talented Japanese wrestlers over the years (Taka Michinoku, Ultimo Dragon, Kenzo Suzuki, Yoshi Tatsu, etc.) that I have no faith in them making stars out of Japanese imports.

    Kazuchika Okada turned down an offer from WWE last year. I believed then that he did the right thing, and I still believe that now.

    Well duh. Okada was/is employed by the without a doubt #2 promotion in the world and was on the verge of getting a push. Him staying in NJPW was a lot safer a career move than going to WWE.

    KENTA is not. He’s been around for long enough, isn’t getting any younger and is in NOAH. Him taking a shot at WWE if they are interested makes a heck of a lot more sense than Okada.

    Hell at this point even if you are a developmental jobber in WWE you at least get some exposure to build back to when you go some place next after. It’s not like he’s going to die or hurt himself going to WWE. Either he makes it, or gets some money, leaves and probably gets a title when he leaves. As several others have seemingly done after jobbing on NXT.
