I didn't like Albert the first time around, but I thought since he was so accomplished in Japan maybe Vince rehiring him was a sign that he had improved. I think i was wrong. He just looks like the same old boring A Train with some Japanese writing on him and a worshiper coming to the ring with him. On top of that that are a lot of stars right now with the same monster gimmick. I imagine he will get a shot at the WWE title, but won't win it. The World Title is always possible, but I doubt that to. Probably drop to the midcard and released again.

Default Lord Tensai ... Umaga like?

^ that's what I see as well. basically Prince Albert with a new gimmick, some tattoos and no back hair.

Going out on a limb and predicting Tensai will be released or mid card status by end of 2012

best case I see for Tensai is something similar to Umaga's career, monster heel comes in runs through jobbers ... and a brief feud with the WWE champ where he loses but gains back momentum with picking up a mid tier title (IC belt)

**but maybe switch it up with Tensai where instead of having him go after the Champ and come up short, have Tensai wreck on jobbers and win a Mid Card belt first .... then if he gets that far with it, launch him @ Punk .. who right now still seems to be tied to feuding with Jericho ... especially after what happened Last RAW

"a championship reign is probably written into major contracts"

that might be the case, and not to hound you too much, but look how open ended that statement is. A championship can be anything from a WWE or World HW title to a mid tier belt such as U.S or Intercontinental

and then consider that even if a title reign is written into Tensai's contract depending on ratings/crowd reaction .. that could cut his title reign short

as I don't think Vince will want a champion that has the audience largely indifferent over.

**but I stick with having Tensai wreck jobbers then try for a mid level title first

You can not Judge where he will be after one match!!!!! Vince didnt rehire him because he watched his work in japan and felt well its the same guy I released oh so many years ago lets rehire. Vince obviously likes what he saw in his work from Japan. I dont think Tensai would agree to come back without some kind of clause in his contract that guarantee's him at least one World Title or WWE championship run. Just because many of you on these boards can't get past the fact that its A-Train and refuse to believe that he has gotten better is your own faults. Giant Bernard as he was called in Japan DOMINATED over there. The guy improved his in ring work. His match with Lesnar over in Japan when Lesnar was IWGP heavyweight champion was a very good match and he dominated Lesnar for a good part of it. Forget what he was and take him for what he is NOW!!!!! The same people who hate him probably love Goldberg who absolutley STUNK in the ring and had no personality at all.

**Tensai's second match in his return another ref stoppage after a 3 minute beat down over Yoshi Tatsu.

I noticed the crowd loudly chanting ALBERT during the match, IMO I don't consider it a great sign going forward, but hey we'll see ... at least he's getting some reaction

It's a bit early on, almost too early on to tell, but he doesn't seem like a guy I would see as a main event talent. Then again, I have been surprised before. I'd just say this, sometimes it's best to wait out a month or two before really making a decision on people. I remember when a certain few members of the IWC thought Brodus would have an Umaga like run, but now look at him, he's the Funkasoarus. You can't really say until you wait it out. This is what I feel about Lord Tensai. I don't see him being the Lord Tesaurus, but I will say having two matches where you squash undercarders doesn't exactly guarantee a title win.

Title shot seems more likelier than a title run. I don't think LT will be able to garner heat. He's getting smark-heat, the chants are condescending and ironic. Without having him do something heel-ish (i.e. giving Zack Ryder a crazy bump or two like Kane), it will be tough to get the crowd to respond to him.

I hope they keep pushing Lord Tensai. He could be a major heel in Elimination Chamber-type multiple contender matches.
