Foreign wrestlers like Yoshi Tatsu should be able to cut pre-taped promos with subtitles. It might be weird at first, but I think the fans would eventually acclimate and accept the style. Wrestlers like Tatsu would have more degrees of expression- being able to convey humor and personality- rather than just broken English promos. I think it would also help in creating the international feel that WWE pushes for.

Bad idea?

Well it would have been nice to see a Scott Steiner promo with subtitles.

I of course understand The Great Khali, but for those who don't, he should have had subtitles as well.

Doesn't he just growl and then his manager,whoever it is,does the talking?

Promos are at least 50% crowd reaction. With subtitled promos there would be no reaction and they wouldn't get over from them. Having managers translate ala Runjin Singh is a much better solution.

What's the point? WWE write everyones promo's anyway so they'll just be saying the exact same as everyone as, as if we're not tired of that already.

Wouldn't be that stupid I think. I think a Promo by for example Tatsu would be better with subs.

I would be for this, if I didn't think that it might hurt the wrestler and turn them into a comedic character

It would only work for comedic purposes, like Kaientai with their "Indeed" stuff.

Lucha Libre USA does this now. So, when the new season starts off, watch Lucha Libre and see if you like it. Then assume WWE would do it worse.

Personally, I like it and think it's done well on Lucha Libre.
