Update on John Cena vs. Kane, WWE Connection with Tajiri’s SMASH Closing?

– John Cena vs. Kane in Last Man Standing matches are advertised for WWE live events after WrestleMania 28, including the April 9th RAW in Washington, DC.

– Former WWE star Tajiri’s SMASH promotion in Japan has announced it will be shutting down in March. Tajiri added that the promotion is closing due to issues between management.

This may have something to do with WWE looking for Cruiserweight wrestlers to appear on a new Network show. Nothing is confirmed but Tajiri could be appearing on that show.

    SMASH has some fantastic female talent working with it. It would be nice to see the WWE bring over a few of them. Of course, with the way they kick, they probably wouldn’t let them into the ring with the current Divas, so that’s probably not going to happen. Those girls strike each other harder than what you see in most WWE men’s matches.

    Ever think that Kane may cause Cena to lose to The Rock? It works cause Rock wins and Cena loses uncleanly. Then Cena turns heal cause Kane made him lose the most important match of his career.

    I want to see Ultimo Dragon vs Sin Cara. We’ll see who botches their entrance.

    Just for the record Jimmy yang isn’t Japanese and I wouldn’t say wwe ruined any of those guys career or anything they just didn’t get a proper push

    I miss Tajiri. He had some pretty good matches in WWE with Mysterio, Regal, and RVD. And countless others. I remember his original ECW run too. The Japanese Buzzsaw had the sickest kicks. I’d love to see him come back. No reason why he shouldn’t, or at least could’ve been in the Royal Rumble. Much rather see him than that jerkoff Duggan or half the roster that usually wrestles on NXT or Superstars. This year’s Rumble was a joke.

    Dick Togo and Taka Michinoku completly forgot about them

    SMASH has been on it’s last legs for a while now, it’s a pretty tenuous link to make.

    Sooooooo the Cena and Kane feud will just end
    at EC and then start again after Mania? WWE
    is losing it they really have no idea wat they are
    doing. They should have started the Cena Kane
    angle a month earlier and just ended it at the
    Rumble and used all the road to Maniwa to buil
    up Cena and The Rock
