Yes, they've certainly never run an all american face gimmick against a gentleman from the middle east before (Yes, I know Jinder's not from the middle east but WWE audiences go "lawl brown people")

Like I said in another thread about this, there is so much they could do with this gimmick in the current social climate of America. Unfortunately, I feel like Vince's politics and out-of-touch mindset would hinder it entirely. Really solid effort. I hope to see some magic happen.

I agree. Derrick is actually funny, but I think this is something that could make his character seem less threatening similar to a Santino Marella. Comedy is only ok in small doses in professional wrestling because you eventually will lose to much credibility with the fans in order to make a name for yourself. Then, there is always a heel turn which would be okay for Derrick in this case, but not Marella for the obvious physical reasons. Bateman the larger of the two would easily come off better as a "threat". Honestly I wouldn't mind a simple name change for him like Derrick Bale. This seems like a character made to clash with someone like Jinder Mahal as well.

They need to make him funny but also establish him as a legitimate athlete. The last thing we need is an American Santino

I don't know how the gimmick got this far along, once someone explains to Vince what the Colbert Report is and that like that, this is a parody of extreme nationalism/flag waving they will kill the gimmick faster than Beaver Cleavage.
