    Default Japanese Stable incoming?

    Giving the signing of Kairi Hojo and most likely Io Shirai there is a lot of great Japanese talent now sitting in NXT waiting for gimmicks. Nakamura, Itami, Asuka, and now Hojo and Shirai, looks like we may see the easy mass debut method and get a stable. With Bullet Club reminding people that Japanese wrestling is a thing, could see someone like Finn lead them, which would be perfect since he can speak for them and main event in case they do not pull the trigger on Nakamura. Given the post WM shakeups that occurs and Nakamura and Asuka being more than ready, curious if this will be the big kick off angle, Japanese invasion of WWE.

    I think a good name for this potential stable would be "The Rising Sun."

    And maybe they'll put all the British wrestlers together, and have Regal manage them and call them "The Empire".

    You got any more old fantasy booking ideas you wanna bring up?

    Why do we need to stick all the Japanese wrestlers together?

    By the way, my suggestion for the stable name would be Kaientai...

    I like the idea.

    Hideo Itami & Shinsuke Nakamura only.

    I'd completely rip off the nWo angle - Bullet Club has - but simplify it, due to the talent's inability to speak.

    - Outsiders Nakamura & Itami debut on Raw taking out random talent.
    - Mick Foley is tasked with fixing the problem and lines up Cesaro and Sheamus to take out Nakamura & Itami - they fail.
    - New Day call out Nakamura & Itami challenging them to a 3 on 3 match at SummerSlam ( Bash at the Beach.. get it? )
    - Nakamura & Itami go into the match 2 on 3 stating they don't need help, mid match Kofi misses Trouble in Paradise knocking out Woods cold.
    - Shinsuke hits a low blow on Big E, when the ref has his back turned.
    - The lights go out - Balor is in the center of the ring, standing firm with The New Day - Finn turns back and superkicks Kofi out of his ridiculous attire.
    - " Bulletproof " beat down The New Day, they throw up the ' too sweet ' gestures.

    The following Raw, " Bulletproof " cut an invasion like promo. The lights go out - AJ Style's music plays, The Club is here and is taking over. It's civil war.

    Guys.

    Bayley isn't working on Raw. I think it might be time to draft her to Smackdown, turn her heel and make her Sister Abigail.

    How bout dah.

    Or we can debut them as they are. Surely far better stories that can be done this way. I mean we could have stories such as Hideo doing 5 minute tag cruiser matches as that Japanese guy who does everyone else's moves. Nakamura getting destroyed by Strawman in a two move match while the commentators shit on his NXT title reign (Welcome to the big leagues kid!!!). Asuka's undefeated streak being broken by Jax on Raw in a 2 minute match. Then they can do dark matches and house shows!!!

    Even better, how about we just keep what is working and leave these guys in NXT until they quit and go back to Japan so we can then talk about how WWE wastes talent?

    Grouping a bunch of Japanese guys without strong gimmicks gives them an instant gimmick until they can get over based on their in ring characters. Otherwise, no one debuts until WWE creates gimmicks for them and storylines, which it appears they are unable to do as they cannot write Asian wrestlers and never have been able to. So could be a year out on Nakamura, two to three on Hideo. Asuka's gimmick should work, but odds are her story will be her streak then she will turn into Sumie Sakai style Asian caricature gimmick. Of course this depends on if WWE wants them to do promos in English or not. If so, then add more time to everyone's debut until they learn the language.

    Unfortunately the prevalence of Nation of Domination/British Empire suggestions that flooded PW over the years means that any kind of stable suggestion gets dismissed with an eye roll and an "Oh boy, another one of these threads" after a mere glance at the thread title. I guess these comments are somewhat warranted because Engel did not give much justification until his second post. I share his belief that WWE ruins almost every wrestler that has success in NXT. I'm not saying every NXT graduate should be a WWE main eventer, but the main roster creative team tends to strip everything away that got that wrestler over in NXT. Very few wrestlers got through unscathed. I especially have much less faith for the Japanese wrestlers whose English skills are somewhere between barely-existent and non-existent. People say Nakamura can speak English, and he can to an extent, but his promos are far below average. The smarky NXT crowds are willing to overlook this because they know how good he is in the ring. If he cuts that level of promo on Raw, it would be shat on or met with silence.

    Stable can work wonders if booked right. The Shield was awesome, and it made instant stars out of the individuals. Who knows if they'd have got that level of success on their own. That holds true for the Wyatt Family to a lesser extent. This stable doesn't necessarily have to be all Japanese wrestlers either. Maybe the next batch of NXT call-ups. Say Nakamura, Itami, Asuka, and The Revival. The trouble is, any legion of thrown together NXT wrestlers will reasonably be touted as a poor man's Nexus or Shield. An all-Japanese stable could have a more fresh and interesting backstory. A group of wrestlers showing that their native wrestling style is better than the "soft" way the Americans wrestle. The strong style army, let by the king of strong style. I'm sure there are other, better, ideas.

    Is this the best way to present the likes of Nakamura and Itami? I don't know. I just don't think it deserves the instant dismissal it's receiving in this thread.

    The reason it's being dismissed isn't because 'ewww stables' it's 'ewwww grouping a bunch of foreign wrestlers together'.

    It's old-hat, and type-casts a bunch of wrestlers to the point where the fans aren't going to care about them. Straight away, all fans could think about is Kaientai and knowing Vince that's the exact path it will go down.

    I could just see myself tuning into Raw, flicking it on and there's Itami being a creep outside of the women's locker room because we all know that deep down Japanese are depraved perverts, right? Just like how all black wrestlers are either extremely jolly and like to dance or they're mean, or they're complete and utter savages. Uncle...

    It should probably be noted the last stable of foreigners touting their superiority over Americans in the WWE failed miserably.

    Exactly this @Emperor

    In addition, I haven't seen the idea of a HHH stable consisting of Owens, Joe etc being belittled or tossed aside, people seem kinda into that idea.

    I hope Nakamura and Asuka are solo acts and NOT a part of a Japanese Stable.
