After 4 years as a mostly silent monster heel (the most he’d said up until now was “YOSH!” and of course “BANZAI!”), Yokozuna finally speaks up at In Your House 6 in 1996 about how Jim Cornette had been mistreating him, and immediately becomes a good guy.
And he speaks perfect English much to the audience’s surprise and confusion.
Man, that is so weird. It’s like finding out that Santa Claus isn’t real or something.
So, he delivers this kind of rambling, loud speech, and he ends up pretty much destroying his career in the process because nobody gave two Sushi Rolls about a bland, boring face Yokozuna who could now suddenly speak.
Some characters are just meant to be bad guys, and Yokozuna was one of them.
The only notable thing he did in wrestling after this ill-conceived face turn was the even more ill-concived Heroes Of Wrestling show which I’m just going to pretend didn’t happen.
