I'll assume that you meant rapidly progressing Japanese society. They're not all dying at the age of 30, are they!?

Honestly VKM probably lays off Japan because AJPW, NJPW, and NOAH have a strong hold on the marketplace and its not like America has a large Japanese population (Like Irish, Italian, etc).

IMO the majority of the casual fans, would not accept them since all they know are the big muscle bound monsters such as Ryback and so forth. They are big, but have no real talent if you ask me. IMO Tatsu has a lot of potential, just does not have the look alot of the people think of a wrestler which is sad since the best wrestlers have been smaller.

japs wouldnt watch it. they got their own wrestling. their own animation. their own comics. their own music. they got a inwards culture. even if a japanese guy got pushed it wouldnt make a dent in japanese interest.

if anyone has any links to any boris alexiev (santino marrella in OVW) matches send me a pm!

Ka En Tai was so popular because they had a comedy jobber gimmick.

Anyway, it's because of the language barrier. Promos are a major part of succeeding in the WWE, and someone like Yoshi Tatsu can't provide that. Although I wouldn't be against seeing him drop the "Yoshi" part of his name, getting a mouthpiece, and being pushed with a Great Muta gimmick.


^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

No, he meant it when he says rapidly aging - and he would be right. Japanese people are having fewer and fewer children and there is a significant elderly population in Japan. There is a high cost of living in that country and on top of that, their culture values taking care of older family members. This is oftentimes at the expense of starting your own family.

Long story short - the average age of Japanese citizens is much higher than many countries.

Re: Why not push Asians or guys who were big there?

I am really hoping there will be a Chinese wrestler some day. We have had japanese guys in the past that just won't work well in US, well at least not in Vince's view, but a chinese wrestler really could work well I think.

By Asian I also mean Asians not Iranians which i consider middle east, I don't give a fuck what the map says. I am entitled to my own opinion.
