Hello! It's time for another edition of "WWE MIA"! Today we will focus our attention on one man: Kung Fu Naki!

As you may know, Kung Fu Naki used to go as just Funaki. His gimmick was "SmackDown's No. 1 Announcer!" His new gimmick is a karate master from the foothills of Japan!

I recently got "Voices: WWE The Music, Vol. 9." His entrance theme is on there. And it got me thinking, what happened to him? I can't really recall the last time I have seen him on WWE TV...

WWE actually gave him a very very very very (very!) small push at the beginning of the year. You're probably thinkin, when?

If you can recall, on SmackDown! he had a string of wins against a couple people. Thus, giving me the reason for saying he had a VERY small push. Do you think it could be considered as a push?

Anyway, I am hoping that you, the reader, will help me in this investigation. I am a total Wikipedia junkie, so I hope over there it will shed some light on this issue.

As of right now, what do you think happened to Kung Fu Naki? Injury? Release? Vacation? Dark Matches?

Those, my friends, are the answers we shall seek today! So please, leave any comments on what you think happened, what you think of the series, or your all-around opinion on this article.

Don't be intimated to say what you feel! Until next time, this has been an edition of "WWE MIA"! Thank You!

(Don't Worry, I'm sure he's there physically!)
