    If I thought WWE would do something other than make him a goofy, outdated stereotype character, then this is a good potential signing…but I don’t think that. With Vince still calling the shots, WWE is where Jingoism rules the day…

    Holy shit, imagine a CM Punk vs KENTA vs Daniel Bryan match. I hope he joins WWE.

    • Bryan Thomas

      That would be great. They’ve never had a top asian guy.


    The “sports entertainers” aren’t ready for KENTA…
