Sho Funaki (船木 勝一 Funaki Shoichi) 1998-2010

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/funaki_7311.jpg
  • Dark Horse Victory: Few expected him to become number one contender to the cruiserweight championship. Fewer expected him to win it yet he did, held on to it, and successfully defended it in Tokyo.
  • Gag Dub: As voiced by Howard Finkel "Indeed" in 2000-2001
  • Gratuitous English: "Smackdown announcer number one!" He got better.
  • I Have the High Ground
  • I Know Kung Fu: When he came back from interviewing as Kung Fu Naki, after taking a little rap by R-Truth to heart.
  • Jobber: One of the more well known examples, which was probably why Stephanie made him an interviewer. To elaborate, you can typically tell if a wrestler is going to job if they don't even get entrance music going into a match. Often times WWE will bring out guys not on the roster and sometimes not even in any long term relationship with the company, just to have them get beat by stars they have signed that have nothing else to do. Funaki lost to one of those guys, after he came out with entrance music even when the other guy didn't. Diamondback today is only remembered as that nobody who beat Funaki!
  • Laughably Evil: As part of Kaientai.
  • Red Baron: "Kung Fu" Naki
  • Rising Sun: One of his finishing moves.
