Potential Team Names: Kamikaze Warriors, The Samurais
Reason For Teaming
Yoshi Tatsu is subjected to weeks of seemingly harmless, backstage jokes about being a star in Japan who is struggling for success in the US.
After several weeks, Tatsu comes to the ring to talk about his struggles with fitting in backstage and asks for the main culprit—a low-to-mid carder, like Alex Riley—to come to the ring and apologize.
Riley comes out and tells Tatsu that it was all in fun, that everyone in the back jokes with each other and that he respects Tatsu as a man and a competitor. Riley tells Tatsu that he will apologize if it means they are still friends.
Before Tatsu can reply, Tensai's music hits and he comes out. As Tensai enters the ring, Tatsu attacks Riley from behind. The two beat Riley before Tatsu grabs a mic and says, "I guess this is just a joke, too." He hits Riley with the mic and leaves the ring.
The following week, Tatsu and Tensai come out wearing the same attire that Tensai wore on his debut. They tell the crowd that they will no longer be disrespected and will become stars here just like they were in Japan. What's more, they will do it whether or not the guys in the back, or the WWE Universe, choose to support them.
