Re: Visually Boring
It isn't just the attire, either. Everybody is about 6 foot and change, a former athlete, body builder or fitness model sort.
Where is a really creepy looking, out there guy with a more normal physique like Mankind? Why are the monster heels like Vader? What happened to guys like Bam Bam Bigelow? So "fat" people have to have silly appearances and silly gimmicks and get jobbed out?
Where have all the props gone? The vultures, urns, snakes, guitars, baseball bat etc.
There is a group called THREE MAN BAND and nobody has a musical instrument?
How lazy can you get?
Does any new wrestler have a piece of attire that sets him apart the way Bret Hart had the Hitman Jacket and glasses or Stone Cold had the vests and knee braces or The Rock had the 5000 dollar shirts or Sting had the trenchcoat? Even just little things like that are absent. I realize not everybody will be this gigantic, larger than life cartoony sort with an elaborate Undertaker/Kane wardrobe but still.
Almost every new guy and 50+ percet of the roster right now has a name like...
"Bertrand Trentwhistle" and dresses like a guy off the street. You'd never know even half of 'em were wrestlers if you saw them in the supermarket.
Here is another thing...
FACE PAINT AND MASKS. How cool are face paint and masks? That can really help get a guy over and tell you what he is about. Again, laziness. No face paint, can't have a mask unless you are a luchador.
I guarantee you Del Rio would be more over as a devious, diabolical backstabber, Two-Faced "Dos Caras." Dude looks boring right now. Ricardo has a better look.
