I don't think this gimmick is going to go over very well for A-Train/Albert at all.  For one thing, most fans will remember him as A-Train and secondly, there was nothing that stood out with this gimmick other than it looked silly.

I'm not sure that the fans knowing he is/was A-Train automatically equates to this being a doomed gimmick. I mean, Cole is point blank telling folks he is a former WWE superstar during ring introduction so they're making it easy for fans to connect the dots

I'll give him some time to get comfortable before I bury him. Brodus Clay looked like a dud @ his debut but look how well that turned out for him

Here's the opinions of a guy that hasn't watched much of any new wrestling in 10 years or more, so take 'em for what it's worth:

Prior to Tensai's debut, I watched a highlight package of his Japanese work, and it seemed as though he'd really improved during his time overseas.  So I just watched this video, and it seems to me that, moreso than Kwang or PY Chu Hi, the WWE's trying to mimic the aura of Leon White when he returned from Japan repackaged as Big Van Vader.  Unfortunately for them, White was a much better athlete and much better wrestler than Albert, IMO.

Based on the highlight footage and the discussions I've seen on this board, I had high hopes for this gimmick.  However, after watching this match, it seems to me this is still the same ol' Albert, just with a few more tats and a lot less back hair.

I don't think it's the fan's knowing it's A-Train that will doom the gimmick, it's just that the match was boring which was just like most of A-Train's matches.  Also, since A-Train was never more than a mid-carder, I think it's going to be difficult to condition the fans who know him to think he's some unstoppable force - especially after a showing like last night's.

I agree it was cool to see him bring back an old school move like the claw, but why didn't he use it as a finisher during the match?  That made no sense at all.

Debuting the same night as Lesnar didn't help him. I'm not sure fans will even care now.

I didn't mind him before, he was underrated for a big guy, Just not a ME type which WWE is hoping for.

Wis they'd have had him wear Kaubuki/Muta face paint. Hell he stole Muta's entrance gear so it would have worked.

I think that would've worked much better.  He also would've looked cooler if he grew a ponytail like Killer Khan and had more of a Mongolian look.

I am going with this one.

I read where this guy was supposed to be improved, so I watched the clip.  He looked choppy in there and was not fluid at all with his moves. 

I can also see where they may be trying to mirror the Vader character.  He is nowhere near as talented as Vader.

Not impressed with the wrestling or the gimmick.

I got to give the gimmick more than one match to see if its good or not.

I do like the look.

Its seems like the way the match was booked they were trying to tell that he out there to just hurt people rather to win. Since he never tried for a pin, and the Ref just stopped the match.
