Come on in. There are all kinds of wrestlers on the WWE roster and may of them come from around the world. That can be rather beneficial for WWE as it offers a wide variety of matches and feuds, along with the idea of appealing to several different areas around the world. It is a big deal when WWE brings in an international star and now they seem to have done that again.

According to, Tama Tonga has finished up with New Japan Pro Wrestling and is heading to WWE. This move has been rumored for a long time but nothing has ever been made official. Tonga, 41, the adopted son of Haku/Meng, is a seven time IWGP Tag Team Champion as part of the Guerrillas of Destiny and a four time NEVER Openweight Champion. There is no word on when he will debut for WWE.

He’s rather talented. Check out what Tonga has done in the ring:

Opinion: This is something that has been long teased for WWE and now we should be in for something interesting. Tonga is someone who can start rather quickly as he is more than experienced enough to make an impact right away. WWE bringing in more stars is a good thing as you never know when you are going to find the next star and Tonga certainly could make an impact.

What do you think of the move? How will Tonga do in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
