      Not that he has ever shown, but they will either stick him with a mouthpiece, or he will learn while in America, which he’ll have to do anyway. There’s more than one guy that can speak both Languages, Tensai for example.

    I wonder if Heyman will make this guy into a Paul Heyman Guy.

    Would be awesome seeing Cesaro and Kenta as a tag team.
