First of all, Tatsu is going to need some new music. That is an absolute, indisputable truth. His theme music right now
is worse than any
Diva's on the roster. You already know you can't take him seriously before he even comes out. I guess you could solve that problem short term by teaming him with someone like Kofi, thereby eliminating the need to play his music. But he still has to show what he can do in the ring, and he still has to get on the mic and give fans the chance to get to know him.
WWE seems to be doing something right at the moment by abandoning the monster Tensai. It can do him nothing but good to spend some time as a goofy face who is not afraid to be a little vulnerable. No one right now
is taking him seriously as a monster heel, and he accomplishes nothing as a jobber. Bloom devoting some time to take the character in this different direction will help him in the long run here in the US. Fans are starting to get behind him a little, and when he starts turning his frustration against the heels who are going to mock him, it turns him into a sympathetic character who resonates with kids and others who understand not being accepted for being different. That way he is forced to be taken seriously by the fans, who deep down always want to see a monster face destroying heels (see "Ryback"
). Which in turn fuels his character for an eventual turn back into a monster heel. Since they accepted him as one, and stopped the "Albert" chants, they will have to at first accept him as the other. The rest will be up to him.
