The mysterious Superstar who thundered into WWE on April 2, 2012, boasts a rich, storied past that spans across both years and continents. Tensai’s path to that fateful night began when he competed in WWE under the names Albert and A-Train for a number of years. During this initial run, Tensai, who's built like a bulldozer but possesses surprising agility and speed, battled some of the most iconic Superstars in WWE in the hopes of capturing sports-entertainment’s supreme mantle: the WWE Championship.
Despite his prowess, though, the powerhouse Superstar was unable to achieve his mission, and decided his path to the World Title lay elsewhere. He ultimately crossed the Pacific Ocean on a personal journey to Japan. There, he immersed himself in Japanese culture and customs, adopting a new training style and ultimately forsaking the ways of his homeland in the hopes that, when he did finally return, he would claim the greatness that had eluded him the first time around.
As the final step to his transformation, the expatriate took the name of Tensai, which translates to "disaster." And with his servant, Sakamoto in tow, disaster did indeed descend upon WWE when Tensai made his return, mauling Alex Riley into submission in his first contest on the night after WrestleMania XXVIII.
Over the following months, Tensai had impressive outings against John Cena and CM Punk. However, after several frustrating losses to Tyson Kidd, Tensai assaulted his own associate Sakamoto on the July 30, 2012, edition of Raw.
In fall 2012, an even more aggressive side of Tensai surfaced, as he tangled with the likes of Ryback and Sheamus. But 2013 brought changes to the beast. After competing against Brodus Clay in a Raw Roulette Dance-Off, The Funkasaurus tamed his foe and taught him some boogying ways. Since then, the unorthodox grooving pair of "Sweet T" and Clay has downed opponents like 3MB, Primo & Epico and Team Rhodes Scholars.
In a Tag Team Turmoil No. 1 Contender’s Match at Night of Champions, Tensai & Clay came up short when The Funkasaurus fell victim to Jack Swagger's vicious Patriot Lock. At WWE Battleground, Tensai was part of the expert panel for the night's Kickoff Match.
As 2013 came to a close, tensions between Tensai and Clay began to grow. At WWE TLC, Clay fought so ugly against R-Truth that Tensai, Naomi and Cameron abandoned their friend in disgust. On the Dec. 16 edition of Raw, things came to a head when The Funkasaurus didn’t take kindly to Sweet T’s sour performance and retaliated in furious fashion, splashing his partner repeatedly.
No longer partners with Clay, Jason Albert (formerly known as Tensai) has been honing his announce skills and has joined the WWE NXT broadcast team alongside Byron Saxton, Tom Phillips, Alex Riley and others.
Albert was part of the expert panel for live editions of "WrestleMania Today," offering exclusive coverage of WrestleMania 30 on WWE Network.
