Quote :
Tensai failed to impress WWE officials in his pinfall victory over John Cena on the April 16 Raw SuperShow in London, England and was deemed "a flop" as a result. He was initially pegged to face Cena at the company's Over the Limit and No Way Out pay-per-view events but his poor showing in the main event match led to his push being curtailed and Big Show taking his place. WWE also canceled plans for summer live events to be headlined by Tensai and John Laurinaitis vs. Cena, instead replacing the former tattoo artist with Big Show.

Though Tensai has yet to be defeated on television, he suffered his first pinfall loss before a WWE crowd in a dark match following Monday's Raw SuperShow—to Cena. He is being largely relegated to WWE Superstars while his character is retooled. He has already undergone tweaks as he appeared sans robe, competed more aggressively and had his named modified within the past two weeks. More changes could be in the works as there was talk this past week of additional modifications.

This is considered a flop yet they are still going with Brodus Clay...

I know some people think there's a lack of proper gimmicks in WWE nowadays (too many people using their real names, playing themselves etc), but Lord Tensai was/is a crap gimmick.

If they just brought him back as Albert and had him moan about the fans not offering him support when he left WWE, much like Big Show is, then there would be no need to send him away to "retool" him.

I wonder if they will turn Tensai face and have him take on Big Show?

Don't know why they expected him to work anyway, he's just a big average guy, same as he always has been.

No way was he ever gonna be main event material.

Umaga went to Japan as a dangerous big guy, and came back one hell of a worker. I reckon they thought Tensai would have been the same.

Part of the problem is that quite a lot of fans don't seem to be able to accept him as Tensai. To them he'll always be Albert or A-Train. And Tensai doesn't seem to be able to change that perception of him.

By all accounts he did improve quite a bit in Japan but short squash matches probably aren't giving him the chance to showcase what he's learnt.
