He looks like a heel. Pretty cool gear though.

Is he Phantasio V.2?

Change his theme song!!!!!!

On topic, it's a bit stereotypical although cool. They had to something with guy.

Yeah. Coming out to what sounds like a generic track for Mario Kart while wearing something that badass is counterproductive.

He guys,

I just saw an article on the main page about Yoshi Tatsu's new look:
http://www.wzronline.com/wrestling-news/photos-yoshi-tatsu-debuts-a-new-mask.html
What do you think about it?
I think this one's really cool, and showing perhaps a darker side of Tatsu? (Hint: Heelturn)
It also show some things from Japan, and he looks more bad-ass now.
Video:

(BTW, now only a new theme, this look + his current theme = old woman shitting on the shiny throne of queen Elisabeth I).

Your Thoughts?

(And why does the audience cheer here? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOwoYzatKik)

I think it is an awesome way for him to stand out a bit and show some love for his heritage
Now if they can only do something about that annoying J-pop entrance musak he's got

He will never be taken seriously with that music..
WWE stereotype everyone... Remember Hornswoggle with Finlay.!!!?!! And Irish people don't always wear green. (had to get it in there) lol
Hopefully they do something with him though.. he is very good in-ring.. but his English isn't the best

ELNIOJR
09-07-2011, 12:48 PM
I like it. However I would like if they actually gave him a "Asian Mafia Man" Look. With some suits, you know. As a Heel of course!

I was going to say the same thing. His theme DEFINITELY does not match that look.

He needs to be in the mid card, he's a great wrestler he just needs a good character, hopefully this is it.

I don't know. I like the half-face painted look, though I imagine that it is a pain in the ass to get it to look that way, and also, he must be using better paint than Jeff Hardy or Sting, cause it doesn't seem to smear nearly as much

haha i gave him a new theme, and black attire, on my SvR 2011 he's a 5 Time World champion, and a one time undisputed champion ( i switched his brand so he could hold both world titles)

with that darker gimmick Tatsu would bring some colour to the bland, non existing midcard

No its easier to apply face paint when your not hopped up on drugs or old as fuck.

this is another reason to bring back the cruiserwieght division, ive been waiting for tatsu to hold some gold since he debuted and knocked out shelton with a single kick

He was way too generic face for me
true about he music, it definatly needs to go

I like the new look, but like everybody has said now he needs new music. And he barely speaks Engrish, I think he needs a manager.

not about how it looks when first applied, it just didn't seem nearly as smeared post-match as I am used to seeing

Change that theme, and get him on Raw. You have a winner!!

Keep the music. He doesn't need a darker personality like everyone seem to suggest for EVERY WRESTLER. In other words, he'll just become one of many others. Dull, dark music, and stalled career.

its a cool look but looks like a cross between sting and avatar this is that reinventing himself like triple h mentioned and he doesnt look bland and he stands out hope this gets yoshi some tv time on smackdown or raw

The Brown One

Nice new look for him. But I don't see him doing anything more than hes currently doing on NXT.

chances are he'll be on raw or smackdown once nxt finishes, he might just job but he probably will be on one of them. After all do the high ups really spend that much time creating costumes and essentially a new gimmick for someone whose going to be on internet tv for what? 3 more weeks?

unless he just came up with it all himself and the higher-ups were just like "well whatever, nobody cares anyway"

Either way, it does look awesome, especially with the bleach resemblance, so i expect with a new look, that he will have more eyes on him, i just hope the wwe takes advantage of the opportunity.

I mean it's not as if his new look is a ninja, samurai or yakuza

maybe it's just me but he looks like an anime character, like the badass one who everyone thinks is evil but it turns out he's actually been helping the good guys behind the scenes
that or someone from a visual kei band

Brewer 314
09-07-2011, 06:10 PM
I laughed when he came out.

That mask looks like some sort of cheap craft project, his ramp attire looked just as cheesy, and then obviously there's that bad music.

09-07-2011, 06:24 PM
And I highly doubt anybody in creative watches anime.....Nobody with a job watches anime.

Goldust used the split face look right around the time that he was "struggling with his identity."
