Just like with Almas(Sombra) if you go back and watch their CMLL stuff you'll see why Dave has the view he does. Dorada was AWESOME in CMLL.

LOL.

Actually Kota is a free agent and is performing all over the place while also being Tiger Mask W for NJPW. Wrestling is fun for him, not about the money.

Add to this that he'll probably end up in a feud with a possible future IWGP champ soon.

If you look at how all the guys in 205 have been used compared how they would be used everywhere else, Kota was the smart one.

And it was also the reason why NJPW broke off their relationship with TNA. NJPW was hoping he'd find another level by working the American style. Instead Russo made him a Kato knock off and sidekick to Samoa Joe. And Okada wasn't a young boy(LION) when he went to TNA.

Okada was not trained by NJPW. He was trained by Ultimo Dragon.

His disappearance has been super puzzling. I thought he, Ibushi and Kendrick were the standouts of the CWC.

So what if he made a couple of botches on his debut? He went through the CWC pretty smooth and put on some great matches. Few botches in ONE match shouldn't discount all the great work he did.

Kalisto and Sin Cara haven't really set the world on fire. I was hoping Gran Metalik could get a shot at being the next top luchador. I'd be up to see him on even NXT. Him vs Almas could be great.

Instances are not exactly the same but situation still sucks.

For once in the company, Japanese wrestlers are treated (and adapting) better than Mexicans.

Vince should release him so he can go work LU taking Puma's spot.

Do it Vince!

I find it amazing that it wasn't enough for them to fuck up Mascarita but now Mascara as well. They're SUPER bad with masked wrestlers. Look what happened with Ultimo Dragon. If I wore a mask I'd stay far away from WWE. Hell, even Zayn is getting treated like shit.

Couldn't agree more they had one hit with Rey Mysterio and other then that they've never had any success. Sin cara, Kalisto, Gran Metalik... not to mention they book always book them as faces to get fed to the big guys... well atleast sin caras getting wins in the locker room.

Mysterio's success had nothing to with WWE though.
