    It remains to be seen how Sakamoto will be used as a wrestler. They already fired Taka's other student they had hired.

    His first gimmick was Regal's slave, biggest japanese star in WWE was a fat samoan.
    He was the most pushed Japanese star ( even if he was midcard)

    WWE.com have announced that John Laurinaitis has resigned from his backstage position as Senior Vice President of Talent Operations. The story says that he is "burned out", but that he will be concentrating on being a Producer within the company.

    Raw is going to get stomped into the ground ratings wise because the olympics are turning out to be around the most watched ever.

    As you can imagine, there is major backstage heat on AW (Abraham Washington) for his comments regarding Kobe Bryant and his rape case from Colorado.

    During Monday's live WWE RAW broadcast, A.W. made an off-color remark referencing NBA player Kobe Bryant's sexual assault case in 2003 and 2004.

    As client Titus O'Neil tangled with Kofi Kingston in a singles match, A.W. yelled from ringside, "Titus O'Neil is like Kobe Bryant at a hotel in Colorado hotel room. He's unstoppable!!"

    Following the commercial break, WWE broadcaster Michael Cole issued an apology on behalf of the organization for A.W.'s remark. He then quickly transitioned to a replay of a backstage segment featuring John Cena and CM Punk that took moments prior.

    In 2003, Bryant was accused of sexual assault after having sex with a hotel employee in Colorado. In September 2004, prosecutors dropped the case after his accuser refused to testify. A civil suit was later filed and settled out of court.

    There are many who feel a release or suspension is forthcoming, especially since WWE apologized for the remarks upon returning from break. This is similar to the Chris Jericho flag incident where the company knew they had to take some sort of disciplinary action. This is also obviously not good for Linda McMahon's senate run.

    In addition to that, Vince McMahon was not in a good mood at RAW due to the chaos that ensued just before RAW went live. We'll have more on his mood and backstage reaction tomorrow here on the website.

    Unlike Jericho, AW is expendable enough for WWE to fire him. Not like it will hurt the company

    Yeah, wouldn't be surprised to see him gone. Other than that time Primo punched him out of nowhere, AW hasn't exactly been indispensable to the PTP's act.
