Funaki to provide Japanese commentary for WrestleMania 32 on WWE Network

Funaki, the former WWE Cruiserweight and Hardcore champion, will be doing play-by-play Japanese commentary for NXT Takeover: Dallas, the Hall of Fame ceremony, and WrestleMania 32 for the WWE Network.

The 47 year old Tokyo native spent 12 years with the WWE, first as part of Kai En Tai and then moving ahead with a singles career. He was released in 2010.

The Japanese commentary will be available on-demand after the live broadcast. WWE announced a few days ago that starting from next weekend, WWE Network events will have multi-lingual commentary available in German, Spanish, Italian, French, and Japanese in addition to English.
