As many of you saw Monday night, WWE aired a vignette for the debut of a new wrestler named "Lord Tensai." They vignette was very interesting and revealed little to no clues as to who the man with a bald head and Japanese-type symbols really is.
According to Ring Side News, the mystery man named "Lord Tensai" is none other than Matthew Bloom. This name may not ring any bells, but surley the names Prince Albert, Albert and A-Train do. It has been reported for a little over a week that Bloom would be returning to the company, re-debuting after WrestleMania XXVIII. Here's the official statement:
WWE began running vignettes for the return of Matthew Bloom on tonight’s Raw Supershow. His new ring name is Lord Tensai. Stay tuned as we will have more on this as it develops.
This is a smart signing for WWE, as Bloom, although large, was always an above average in-ring competitor and a very good mid- to upper-card talent. He is currently signed to New Japan Pro Wrestling, where he is wrestling under the ring name "Giant Bernard."
When reports came out that Bloom would be re-signing, he attempted to throw fans off by tweeting the following:
Haha! False. Wife just had a baby. I'll be on next tour
This is just another time that the Internet has ruined the secret plans of the WWE and the returning superstar is trying to cover up what should have been a surprise to fans. Nice try Mr. Bloom, nice try.
