I don't know what Seabs is talking about. Steen could be very successful in Japan if he goes as a crazy brawler who doesn't give a fuck and disrespects everybody. Puro is full of limited workers who know how to work around their limitations and showcase their strengths, and Steen has way more strengths than most japanese wrestlers.
If he wants to (or if he is allowed to) he would stand out immediately from other gaijin or native heels. He works best when someone fires back at his bully antics and puro is pretty much all about firing back.
Yeah I'm not saying it wouldn't work but I'd be shocked if it worked as well in front a different culture of audience. Somewhere like New Japan and Dragon Gate with hotter crowd he's got a chance but no way in NOAH.
