So what do you think will happen first?
>WWE gives the World title to a full on 100% black guy
>WWE gives the world title to a Japanese guy
Japanese guy. The whole reason they're signing NJPW and other japanese talent is because Vince is butthurt about the fact that they take any American jobber and turn him into a main event star.
Mark Henry deserves a run; especially with the retirement rumors
Let Henry win the Rumble and the title (I just realized while typing this that this would be the best thing WWE could do for black history month, kek). Have him feud with Lesnar, and let Lesnar take the strap either at WM, or Fast Lane if you wanna tie in someone else in the feud for Lesnar to fight at WM instead.
I never thought I'd ask for a Lesnar/Henry feud but with all these injuries they're running outta options....
He's been there forever and he's still seen as a legit threat. Let him have a transitional run on his way out.
Nakameme coming across the pacific to meme all over wwe
From what I've heard on the Wrestling Observer, WWE is throwing huge unheard of sums of money at Nakamura to get him to come over. He's legit one of the top wrestlers in the business right now, speaks english, has bucket loads of charisma and a rockstar image that will get him over. They also have the ability to tap into the East Asians here in America, which is the fastest growing racial demographic in the country. Add this to the WWE Network launching in Japan, and I believe they're going to push Nakamura the same way they did Alberto Del Rio his first couple of years and groom him to become a future World champion, even if it's only for a few months.
He's another Orlando Jordan/Shelton Benjamin type that will be billed as the "most athletic superstar" on the roster. He'll probably have a good run as tag champ and then some failed solo pushes where he might hold the US or IC title but never really gets over.
not happening. they can push him all they want but the fans won't buy him as being a legitimate threat to anyone bigger than xavier woods or dolph ziggler. there's a reason guys like ultimo dragon can win every belt in japan and then despite a solid push, languish on the undercard in america for the rest of their career.
>there's a reason guys like ultimo dragon can win every belt in japan and then despite a solid push, languish on the undercard in america for the rest of their career
Yeah, his lucha libre gimmick and size keeps him on the cruiserweight undercard in America. An absolutely shitty comparison. Do you even know who Nakamura is? He stands nose to nose with Roman Reigns and has a gimmick that goes over well in the upper card. Not to mention completely out of Roman's league in athletic and in-ring talent.
If fans can buy a manlet like Daniel Bryan going over Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista in one night, Nakamura is an incredibly easy sell.
>comparing king of swag to ultimo dragon
Typical /wwe/ babies. They have opinions on wrestlers they never watched and know fuck all about. At least look up his wikipedia. Nakamura is bigger than a lot of former WWE World Champions and does moves in the ring that would legit kill someone in real life. He's not some flippy midget cruiserweight wearing a glittery mask.
