Would Naito be successful in WWE? Would he become the first Japanese world champion? I don't even know if he speaks English or notWould WWE just give him a stereotypical Asian gimmick and renamed him as "Xi Jinping"?
>>3549804But why? He's not like the Japanese WWE used to sign in the past who were 5'6" and 130 lbs with no charisma (Like Tajiri and whatever)
His name would be Mr. Sushi and he'd have a DDR gimmick.
>>3549812Tajiri had plenty of charisma you zoomer. Taka as well. Vince hates Asian people and will never give one a main event push.
>>3549792You want him to have a dancing gimmick? No? Then it's better not to ask.
They would treat him like Nakamura or slightly worse, if you don't speak english you will never become world champ unless you are called Khali.Do you think Mysterio would have won a WC if he only spoke spanish?
>>3549792No because Naito’s body is fucked & Vince does not want a guy who is injury prone
>>3549792Lol no, he will get a dancing gimmick and chasing the 24 7 belt.
>>3549792Inoki was already the first one regardless of the records
You need to find the person in Japan that would best fit what Vince wants. So 8t would be the Great O'Khan
>>3549792They'd give him a dancing gimmick and have him lead an army of ninjas for the 24/7 title.No.
He'd be the 3rd member of Jacket Time. Or >>3549820
>>3549792A few years ago for sure.
>>3549792Look at Nato maggle he's having a blast teaming with R Truth
>>3550433Like he would ever accept a Kushida tier push, he would require the same push as Nakamura and probably a higher wage too, people like to pretend that WWE is still as attractive as it was in the previous years when the last japanese talents they got is Jiro Kuroshio and a broken down Kushida.
>>3549792they'd play up the mexican thing and have him come out in a sombrero and mariachi music and change his name to tetsuya noches
Naito would flop in WWE. He'd do better in AEW since Tony would respect that he's a NJPW veteran but really Naito is close to done with wrestling anyway as sawdusted as he is.
