Sheamus and Tensai recently impressed officials with their grueling match on Raw. With Tensai having a few high-profile wins under his belt, it is logical to assume that WWE may use him in a World title feud sometime soon.
According to reports, Tensai is being repackaged. His most recent match saw him show a more familiar style than the overly powerful style he had been using since his return.
WWE has made numerous mentions of Matt Bloom's success in Japan, and it is rare for them to acknowledge anyone's contributions from outside the WWE.
Tensai is a big man who has a lot of physicality and a presence that is both intimidating and intriguing. His size makes him a natural heel over most of the roster, as he can pummel most of the other smaller superstars with ease.
Sheamus, on the other hand, is a close match with Tensai in the power department, and we saw in their match that he has the ability to go toe-to-toe with Tensai on any day of the week.
Even if Tensai is simply used as a victim to push Sheamus as a strong world champion, it would still allow him to get his face in the title scene and give everyone a taste of what it would be like to have Tensai main-eventing shows.
His return has been met with mixed reviews from fans, but he has the ability to win people over if he is given a chance to show what he can do.
His first WWE run was not as successful as he probably would have liked, but he did have a lot of big-name competitors in the ring with him, which elevated his standing in the business enough for him to be taken seriously in Japan.
Tensai has been put in a position in WWE where he could be the next big superstar to go against the mold, or he could end up like Umaga and be used to get others over for the rest of his run.
Umaga was another big man who, like Tensai, had an unusual amount of agility for his size. But he ended up being wasted by WWE until he was released and unfortunately passed away.
I would be very interested to see Tensai and Sheamus feud, because WWE has two big powerhouses who might be able to put on a better match than most wrestlers their size.
What do you think? Would you be interested in seeing a World title feud between Sheamus and Tensai?
