Sho Funaki Returns to WWE in Japan, Matches for Today’s WWE Superstars

– Matches for today’s WWE Superstars include Ted DiBiase vs. Heath Slater, Kofi Kingston vs. Primo Colon and Santino Marella vs. JTG.

– Longtime WWE performer Sho Funaki worked the RAW live event today in Yokohama, Japan. Funaki was the special referee for a match between Divas Champion Beth Phoenix and Kelly Kelly. After the match, The Miz interrupts Funaki and told him to get out of the ring. Funaki left WWE in April of 2010 after 12 years with the company.

Another match of interest from today’s show saw John Cena and Big Show defeat the team of Kevin Nash and The Miz.

    I remember Funaki being there so long and was barely on tv. how did he keep his job for 12 years?

  • Sammo

    When Miz told him to leave the ring, I hope Funaki responded with “INDEED”.

    If rather watch Funaki referee than Miz wrestle, tbh.
