He is supposed to be the next Bray Wyatt. I don't want this guy to be the next anything.

Does Wyatt come up with his own promo's or are they written for him. That is the key.

Reminds me of Raven more so than Mankind, but yeah we haven't had a good 'messed up' character in a while

I suppose the similarity is in the fact that both had 'out there' gimmicks which are catching the attention of a lot of people. Problem is, Mankind became ridiculously successful not just because of his gimmick being pushed but because in terms of pure passion, Mick Foley is one of a kind. He brought a different feel to WWE and peaked at a time where there weren't so many limits. Bray Wyatt will be a good gimmick no doubt but I don't think it'll be as successful because Foley was more talented than Wyatt is (although his age means he can improve a vast amount. His potential is huge) plus the Bray Wyatt gimmick is coming at a time where he's too 'out there' to main event and he may not even get over. The WWE is aimed at children more so now than in the late 90s and it's quite a complex gimmick.

I have been following the Bray Wyatt character since it was introduced, he is without doubt the most interesting character (Next to Damien Sandow) in the whole WWE in my opinion. I absolutely love his work. There are so many superstars on the WWE main roster who aren't even close to the talents of guys like Wyatt and Ambrose.

You're comparing him to the wrong wrestler. The only guy currently similar to Mankind's heel persona is Dean Ambrose. In that both are loners, brawlers and have characters revolved around deep seated psychological issues. Mankind was a schizophrenic, Ambrose is a depressive, misanthropic nihilist.

Instead, Wyatt can more comfortably be compared to talent such as Punk, Raven or perhaps even Jake Roberts. It's obviously too early to see if he is worthy to be compared to them, but that's the heel persona he seems to be mimicking - a manipulative sociopath.

A very good point. To me it seems as if they are written for him. His delivery is superb and the way he is playing the character is brilliant but the content of his promos are very long-winded and deep which is why I have a tough time believing that he is the orchestrator of them.

If you compare him with a guy like Ambrose, or Foley as this thread has, he isn't as fluid and it doesn't sound as 'off the cuff' as those guys do. I don't think we'll know the answer to your question until he gets on RAW or Smackdown and we see how much his promos differ from his stuff in developmental.

Don't you mean the first Bray Wyatt?
