WWE Money in the Bank 2012: How Tensai May Win the World Championship Briefcase

WWE has really dropped the ball with Tensai since his return to the company a couple of months ago. His character has been changed and his TV time has been limited as of late. I would like to see the WWE just scrap the character all together.

However, in true WWE fashion, I could see them giving the character one extra push for good measure and the result being that Tensai wins the World Championship Money in the Bank contract.

Why, you might be asking? Well, clearly the powers that be had big plans for Tensai when they had him rejoin the company. The fans have never taken to the character and that has caused changes, but they are still trying to keep him alive.

Vince McMahon is known for shoving characters that he likes down our throats. Look at characters like The Anonymous GM, Michael Cole, Hornswoggle and John Laurinaitis. We could see the same thing happen for Tensai. We could be forced to see Tensai in the main event because Vince McMahon thinks that we should like him.

Another possibility is that Tensai wins and then they choose to repackage him in a different role. I personally find the whole Japanese character that he is portraying kind of contrived and boring.

Given the right circumstances, Tensai could be a good character worthy of praise. However, much work needs to be done to his current status. Plainly speaking, Tensai is a good brawler, but his gimmick is horrible.

I think Tensai is being overlooked in this match. He could legitimately have a chance at winning the briefcase on Sunday.
