Some WWE Stars Were Allowed to Wrestle More ‘Japanese Style Matches' on Recent Tour of Japan
Posted by Larry Csonka on 07.17.2014

As previously reported, former Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis was on the WWE tour of Japan and was in charge of those events. He worked with Paul Heyman with some of the tour's booking.

According to The Wrestling Observer (via Wrestlezone), some WWE talents were allowed to wrestle a more Japanese style during the events in Tokyo and Osaka. For example, one of the Cesaro vs. Kofi Kingston matches was said to be laid out similar to a classic bout between Riki Choshu vs. Shinya Hashimoto. Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn, who have previous experience working in Japan, were allowed to present Japanese style bouts. Finally, while working with Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose was allowed to work like Terry Funk (which he asked permission to do) and worked trademark Terry Funk babyface spots into his matches with Rollins.
