I honestly don't think a gimmick like Taker's will ever get over properly again. They should let his legacy alone when he retires, and focus on making entertaining characters that are based in realism.
This. If a surreal deadman gimmick was introduced now, it would never go over in today's more realistic, almost UFCish wrestling environment. Back when Taker made his debut, WWF was in an era full of outlandish gimmicks and most people didn't know about kayfabe back then, hence the children crying during his entrance in Taker's early days.
