Yep, and if I'm not mistaken Sho Funaki is from Texas and also speaks perfect English. This is WWE though, and if you look Japanese, you must have an exaggerated language and not speak the language a lick.
Originally posted by Spaceman SpiffFunaki happens to be living in Texas, but I'm pretty sure he's originally from Japan. I don't know how "perfect" his English is, though.
Sho Funaki was a founding member of the awesome Kaientai stable that was brought over from New Japan (I think) in the late 1990s to flesh out the WWF's then (and still) non-existant Light-Heavyweight division.

What was wrong with the crowd tonight? That was an awesome segment, and the crowd didn't give even a quarter of a damn! The only time they made like ANY kind of noise after the McMahon segment was for the Rock. That was very whiny of the crowd.
