Re: Sell Me on Sanada
He has never really been put in a position to be successful.
Dude hasn't exactly been given the Okada booking. He loses more than he wins. And he has basically lost to every top guy that he ever faced, and wasn't even given more than 15 minutes in the ring to establish himself.
NJPW just doesn't see him as one of their own. Japanese pro wrestling is in many ways a very backwards business. If you haven't been groomed in a promotion's dojo, the chances that you'll be booked on top as a native talent, are very, very low. You're just seen as a utility player, like Sanada. A guy that can be used to put over NJPW's own.
Foreigners are treated differently.
