Video: Lord Tensai debuts on Raw and squashes Alex Riley

We watched Daniel Bryan deliver an awesome post-Raw speech. Then we watched Brock Lesnar make his triumphant return to WWE to smash John Cena. Now let's watch the debut of Lord Tensai.

It's not really a debut, not in the truest definition of the word. It's the debut of this particular character but the man playing him, Matt Bloom, has already spent considerable time with WWE having wrestled under the moniker of Prince Albert and A-Train, among others.

But he left for Japan, got over fairly well and now he's back in the states to impress us. But did he?

It's only one match, and a squash at that, but what did you think of Lord Tensai? Looking forward to more or already bored?
