Leo Kruger new gimmick?

Ok what was up with his weird ass promo this week? I didn't know whether to think he was retarded or nuts. It does have me interested i'll say that, i'm more interested in him now that ever have been since it looks like he might actually be getting a gimmick. What are you're thoughts on this? and what type of gimmick do you think its going to be?

Re: Leo Kruger new gimmick?

I personally enjoy him the way he is. I just think some adjustments should be made.

Call him Leo "The Lion" Kruger.

It's bad enough the man is as plain as paper, but calling him Leo "The Lion" Kruger is just awful. Kruger has nothing in terms of overall talent other than his ability in the ring which isn't that impressive in the first place. His mic skills are better than average, but when he speaks it doesn't matter because he isn't saying anything special anyhow.

I thought that promo on NXT was both confusing and horribly delivered. It came off really badly, I wouldn't have aired it at all.

Re: Leo Kruger new gimmick?

I thought the promo was great - something completely different. As for his new gimmick, if you look at his nxt bio on the official site - he's going to be a South African big game hunter/poacher type who has hunted and killed every animal so now is after new game to hunt - wwe wrestler. Good enough for a call-up and the mid card.

His NXT Bio -

Quote:
Leo Kruger spent most of his life living in the ‘bush’ in South Africa. As a big game hunter, Leo has spent most of his life on the fringes of society, seeking only the solace of the jungle. Kruger is not driven by the materialistic trappings of WWE Superstars: money, fame, even championship titles are meaningless to him. Only one thing drives Kruger: the thrill of the BIG hunt. He preys on the biggest and strongest beasts he can find, stopping at nothing to capture and destroy them. With former quarry of elephant, lion, even crocodile, Kruger has now set his sights on the big game Superstars of WWE. Khali, Ryback, and The Funkasaurus are Kruger’s new obsession. Utilizing his ‘bush’ English and native tongue, Afrikaans, Kruger presents a terrifying danger to those he faces.
And his new look -

You mark for Ohno. You have no room to be calling any wrestlers "not that impressive" in the ring.

And that would be the fault of the writers not him.

Looks kinda like Kraven the Hunter. (He's a spider-man villain.)
