Re: Derrick Bateman pushing a new character
I hope he says that he supports the troops a billion times, that he opposes bullying thousands of times and I hope he endorses Linda McMahon.
It would seriously be brilliant television if he used this character to its full potential come December with the "Tribute to the Troops." Cut a lengthy promo in which he completely kisses the military's collective ass and talks about blowing people up 'cause that's what we do!
You can get so meta with this, it'd be fantastic. Like he interrupts a random Jinder Mahal promo and tells him to go back to Iraq or tells Hunico and Camacho to quit waving their Mexican flag and to stop speaking Mexican.
If you did this in most arenas, he'd be babyface by default. But then you slowly let the rubes in on the joke as it goes along.
Kind of dangerously high-concept in nature but that is why I like it.
