Adam Rose has a very entertaining Russell Brand gimmick. I'm not sure how much legs it's got, but it was entertaining for his first night. As the title says I loved Kruger and couldn't believe when they changed him, but Rose is entertaining so far.

What does everyone else think?

I love the new gimmick and was happy to see him get a positive reaction from the crowd - speaking of, one guy tried to get a "Leo Kruger" chant going but the crowd shut him down immediately. Nice to see that the majority of the people are giving this character a chance.

Thought the early part of the match was fun, with him continuously rolling away from his opponent. There was a point where things slowed down and the crowd got quiet, so I think he needs to find the right balance in the ring to keep interest. Through every gimmick he's had, that's the one thing that hurts him in that he oftentimes loses the crowd with restholds or ground-and-pound. If he can find a way to make his restholds "fun" in line with his character, he'll really have something. Liked the finish too, with the "CHOO CHOO" in the corner to set up the clothesline. It's almost there, and this is the most entertaining version we've seen of the performer, so I hope things work out for him.

I'd aim much higher up the card for any tie in debut. If Jericho was around, for example, Adam Rose could be introduced as an eccentric friend he runs into all over the world at the most strange times sorta deal.

Or have it a case where seemingly every wrestler knows him - like he gets around, all over the world and in all circles. So Del Rio would know him from a time in Mexico, Cesaro would have a story about him from a meeting in Switzerland, Khali and Rose would be buddies, Yoshi would know him, Regal would have a great grimy story about him, Hornswoggle would be a party regular etc...

As much as fans seem to love the character, the guy is fucked. I almost feel sorry for him.

Wrong guy for the gimmick. I get the character, but he just makes it look generic. They should have used someone else for this character. He doesn't look the role.

It's a comedy gimmick that's the problem
Kruger was a great gimmick and he played it well. I see no reason to change him

which is why he was more over in that one match than in how many years as Leo Kruger?

Comedy gimmicks are not a bad thing - look at Emma, look at Breeze, look at (arguably) Bryan

What does "the role" look like then? It's a translation of a Russell Brand character, and he's one of the few guys on the roster with a similar look. And I don't think he makes it look generic, it looks like he's having a lot of fun and that translates on screen to me.

I disagree, I think we've seen that certain characters can be played for more than laughs. Team Hello No, Fandango and Tyler Breeze are all characters that could be considered "comedy" gimmicks, but it's all in the execution. As far as the Leo Kruger character, I don't think it had legs since it was already starting to get stale. Plus, there was always a disconnect between his crazed sounding promos and his methodical in-ring work.
