"If the WWF was all about who was the most talented, then Taka Michinoku would be the WWF Champion" - Mick Foley
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!
