WWE continues to tinker with Tensai

After his "HOSS BATTLE" loss to Sheamus last night on RAW, Tensai destroyed his worshiper Sakamoto.  As you may or may not recall, I was not a huge fan of Tensai as he was initially presented.

Assuming Sakamoto is dropped altogether they will have changed three of my main gripes with the character (Sakamoto, Name and Look).  Actually, I guess it is 2.5 of them as the in-ring gear has not changed.

Going forward I will be interested to see how long they will let this gimmick drift at sea.  It seems that some on A1, WCMB and DOT NET were encouraged by the new direction.

Encouraged isn't the word I would use, but it was clear to me it was not working.  Due to that I am glad to see WWE Creative continue to massage the gimmick.

Updated as I forgot they had dropped 'Lord' from his name.  Thanks to A1 poster, Zandrax, for catching that.
