Tensai Reportedly Deemed A Flop By WWE Officials; Repackage



Tensai failed to impress WWE officials in his pinfall victory over John Cena on the April 16 Raw SuperShow and was deemed “a flop” as a result. He was initially pegged to face Cena at both Over the Limit and No Way Out but his poor showing in the main event match led to his push being curtailed and Big Show taking his place. WWE also canceled plans for summer live events to be headlined by Tensai and Laurinaitis vs. Cena, instead the former Prince Albert with Big Show.

Tensai has already undergone character tweaks as he appeared sans robe, competed more aggressively and had his named modified with the past two weeks. More changes could be in the works as there was talk this past week of his character being repackaged.
