Default *News* Real reason why Hirohito's gimmick Was dropped

PW:

The word from backstage is that Kenzo and Hiroko Suzuki talked Vince McMahon into nixing the Hirohito gimmick due to the potential backlash it would have with WWE's loyal Japanese fans. WWE makes a lot of money off its tours to the region, and offending them with such a gimmick would not be worth it.

Suzuki will now likely move to SmackDown, although, was originally scheduled to be in RAW's main-event in a title feud with Benoit.

Some sources claim that this was a thoroughly-planned angle by WWE, and Benoit and Jericho were announced as being from the US to create US vs. Japan feuds with Hirohito. Both men were expected to work high-profile feuds with Suzuki's Hirohito character, although plans have been scrapped. It is not known how highly he'll be pushed on SmackDown!

Well, after hearing what they were going to do with it, i would have really looked forward to it. and of course it would offend the japanese, but what the heck. Hopefully the WWE Won't drop the ball on him over on SD, because i sadly see him forever trapped in the Velocity Vortex.

That's a stupid reason. They make a lot more money off the canadian market and they didn't have any problem dissing them.

...and it's not like FUnaki isn't a bit sterotypical, or That every Japanese worker Besides funaki is held down in the WWE.
