A note on Tama Tonga

I’ve been trying to figure out why I can’t take Tama seriously as a dangerous heel, let alone a main event threat. Last night during his entrance it clicked. The dude has a serious babyface. And all that trap dancing and mean mugging only makes it worse. Anyone else think he should go back to the facepaint for this heel run?

Sanada was so smooth working with ZSJ, he has a great look as well so I’m with WH when he said that he could be the guy the company gets behind in the future.

Are any of you guys missing Don Callis on commentary?

Rocky’s doing a great job and Kevin Kelly is the anchor to the team anyway.

Finally just got to the Ishii Goto match. Holy cow!!!
