He's a massive prick of a heel in NJPW, he was a beloved face for years there and turned heel last year. He's proven to be a great asshole, he really riles up crowds.
Some of that has to do with how he's presented in Japan (he uses US style heel tactics in Japan, a place that doesn't have that kind of a heel normally), but I'm sure it would translate well to WWE. And he can be a face, if they wish, he's got a very spectacular style (which he's currently toning down while he's a heel).
