During Raw’s latest trip to Las Vegas, Brodus Clay and Tensai were set to compete in a lingerie pillow fight courtesy of the Raw Roulette wheel. After Tensai left to change his attire, however, Vickie Guerrero and Clay decided to spin the wheel again and it landed on “dance-off.” The Funkasaurus — and the WWE Universe — breathed a sigh of relief, but Tensai was unaware of the change.

Tensai didn’t realize the ruse until after he was already wearing lingerie and in the ring. But following some encouragement from Clay, The Funkadactyls and the WWE Universe, it was clear — the massive Superstar could definitely bust-a-move. Two nights later on WWE Main Event, Tensai once again proved he’s got rhythm after defeating Titus O’Neil, dancing alongside The Funkasaurus, Naomi and Cameron.

The sudden change in Tensai’s demeanor brings up an age-old question when looking back through WWE history — a question last pondered following Brodus Clay’s debut in January 2012 — why do big Superstars like to boogie? (PHOTOS OF WWE'S DANCING SUPERSTARS | WATCH PLAYLIST)

The arrival of The Funkasaurus was highly anticipated and for weeks then–Interim Raw General Manager and Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis hyped the imminent debut. Clay boogied his way to the ring, flanked by The Funkadactyls and an arsenal of smooth moves. Surely, the WWE Universe was just as perplexed as Clay’s opponent, Curt Hawkins, and did not take the Superstar hailing from “Planet Funk” seriously.
