At least somebody gave Taka Michinoku the respect he deserved! I was always a huge Kaientai fan. Taka Michinoku is my friend's favourite wrestler of all time and i think a few people here know that i've always been a big fan of Funaki (also one of the best workers the WWE ever had in my opinion) What's your opinion of Taka, Funaki and their team Kaientai? Do you think they were a missed opportunity by WWF and that they should have been used better? I definitely would have preferred to have seen Kaientai used better. I loved Taka Michinoku as Light Heavyweight champion. it was the only proper title reign either of them had, Funaki was cruiserweight champ for a short while which i enjoyed aswell. I can't belive they never got their hands on the tag titles, i was always rooting for them to win! Even when they were "EEEVIIIILLL" Plus while the "EVIL" and "INDEED" gimmick was entertaining for a while, i think it killed them. They became nothing more than a pair of Santinos and i always would have preferred seeing them wrestle rather than goofing around with bad dubbing, as hilarious as it sometimes was. Out of the two, wheres i was always a bigger fan of Funaki, i think Taka Michinoku was technically the better wrestler, and he definitely could have had a better singles career. One of the best cruiserweights, if not the best, that WWE ever had!
