Re: Backstage News On Sanada's Future With TNA And Wrestle-1 Allowing TNA To Use Him
I disagree with the constant comparisons to Okada, at that time TNA had a bloated roster and only 2 hours of TV, were they supposed to showcase a guy who doesn't speak English and works for another company? Okada was there to learn the sports entertainment side of wrestling and said himself that his time there helped him create the "Rainmaker" gimmick. He was never meant to be star in TNA, because that would have only benefited New Japan and done nothing for TNA. Now with their X-Div being so thin it was easy to find a spot for Sanada, and a joint-contract will hopefully give them incentive to do more with him.
