Dunno what you are all expecting from this guy. Looks like a daniel bryan/cm punk clone without the promo ability of punk or relatability of Bryan. I know Kenta invented their style and they both took lots of his moves, but WWE fans been watching those guys for years so the stuff Kenta does will not look new or innovative.

Tajiri (5'8), Joe (6'1), Taz(5'8) were all monsters, KENTA (5'9) could be too. It would take the booking to be non-retarded though, so fat chance.

It would be far easier for a mysterious foreigner with a stiff style to pull off a "monster" heel gimmick than a "scumbag" heel gimmick. They're not mutually exclusive however.

He is going to be a badass. Undersized, but a badass. Imagine someone like Randy Orton ripping on how short and small he is, and then...










What's his gimmick? Don't know. He just debuted, he's in NXT still so he has all the time in the world to make something of himself here.

I just think it would've been better for him to have someone do his talking for him. He could've even debuted as Regal's handpicked #1contender/enforcer.


I'm a big fan of the monster mysterious Japanese person gimmick that Tajiri once had.

That may or may not happen down the line. Hideo may spend up to a year in Florida in NXT, his English could progress enough. If not then yeah maybe he'll get a mouthpiece. Really to early to say.

Maybe he can just be IWC's wet dream, a puroresu gimmick similar to Samoa Joe, being exceedingly stiffer than usual American pro wrestling or just having anti-American style. If he is a heel he could lean to Minoru Suzuki's jerkassness.

Or just this decade's Tajiri, yeah.

They should do a vegeta type angle. Give a little dude a big guy or two who fight for him but they are terrified of him and then everyone is like why are they scared of this little dude. Then after the big dude squashes people for months little dude squashes the big dude. Then he transforms into a giant monkey

It's amazing that Khali is still employed by WWE for more than 7 years.

Wish they would have kept the KENTA name because you can't really chant his new name.
