Can Kairi Sane get over on the main roster with her current gimmick

It's very much looking like Kairi will be called up and will appear in the main roster this week. Most likely on Smackdown with Io or Asuka as a tag team who Paige could be referring to as that "impressive tag team"

There has been no mention of Io being called up thats why its possible it will be Kairi and Asuka.

Anyway, could her gimmick, which is a Japanese wrestler being a pirate, get over with main roster fans?

Some gimmicks that that did well in NXT dont transfer over smoothly to the main roster. Take Bayley for example. Huge fan favorite in NXT. On the main roster at one point they booed Bayley.

No doubt Kairi is a beloved fan favorite on NXT. She was awarded,by fan votes, as best female competitor of the year as well as best overall competitor of the year in 2018.

My take is for fans who dont watch NXT it could take a couple of weeks to warm up to her cause fans could find her pirate gimmick a little silly but then they'll warm up to her and cheer for her.

She'll get buried into oblivion before having any chance of getting over

If she goes out with that gimmick, The announcers will act like complete dipshits every time she steps foot on the stage and hurt her popularity on a nightly basis.

So it will be business as usual..

Of course it can't be forgotten the scene Michael Cole put on about the Ultimate Deletion was absolutely embarrassing and it would likely be something similar for her.

She needs to change her gear more than her gimmick.

Re: Can Kairi Sane get over on the main roster with her current gimmick

She can and will. The real question is whether WWE will back her or destroy her when that happens.

Hiroshi Tanahashi/Kazuchika Okada/Minoru Suzuki/Daniel Bryan/Asuka

Samoa Joe/Tetsuya Naito/Tomohiro Ishii/Meiko Satomura/Becky Lynch

Yeah, the commentary team make or break people too even when they kayfabe play a villain describing how someone is "awful" or "an idiot"

Basically this.

She's talented and engaging enough to succeed but how they make her work out to be is another thing.

Depends what you mean by "over".

If she can't talk, she'll have the same glass ceiling as Asuka.

I think the gimmick can get over. It is an obvious fantasy gimmick and has no schoolmaster attitude. But it depends how WWE is presenting it. If they go again like "uh oh, btw, thats Kairi Sane, you know her from NXT, good luck", then it could be a problem. In my opinion many transfers from NXT failed in the beginning by the way WWE introduced them into the show.

Weren`t the boos regarding Bayley from fans, who thought her injury was fake?

The gimmick isn't even over on NXT, the crowd loves her because she has a cool Elbow Drop and is quite cute.

What can work for her is that next Mania theme is a pirate theme.
