Could Bray Wyatt be the next Mankind???

I have become a huge fan of Bray Wyatt and his works but the more I watch him bray wyatt remind me of Mankind. With his not normal looks and his ring styles I think he could be the mankind if the WWE will push the idea more.

Re: Could Bray Wyatt be the next Mankind???

Nah, Mankind was one of a kind. He was more deranged and crazy, although I do agree that they are as psychotic as one another. There are some minor similarities but Wyatt is not as unstable as Mankind was. Wyatt also is possessing leadership/brainwashing qualities that Mankind never had. I sincerely believe that we've never seen a character like Bray Wyatt in the WWE (apart from Waylon Mercy but he wasn't around to make much impact).

He's done a phenomenal job in this role, and I hope he becomes very successful but I don't see the comparison, outside of having a psychotic streak. Plus, he has a long road to go before he becomes Mick Foley level talent. He may not ever get there, few people do.

Better than Foley? I'm a massive fan of both guys but I'm not sure on that one. In fact I completely disagree but there ya go.

Re: Could Bray Wyatt be the next Mankind???

I too am a Punk fan, but his mic work is overrated and he's only considered a top guy now on the mic because he's compared to the rest of the current roster - quasi-shoots and regurgitated indie stuff he did years ago that were better the first time. Maybe it's because he was terrible with the canned comedic stuff written for him as a face or that's he's whiny as a heel. Mankind, Rock, HHH, Austin were all allowed to be badasses as heels. Now all the wwe has anymore is comedic faces and whiny heels. Mark Freakin' Henry got himself over because he was a tough talking badass heel.

Mankind is also my favorite Foley persona by far. Foley is one of the greatest promo guys of all time at his peak.

Well, you're free to do that. I'm a massive Foley fan too but I'm less connected to his promos than Punk. I rate Punk higher on the mic than just about anyone in wrestling history, I can't think of many.

And to be perfectly honest, and I'm not saying that's what you're doing so don't chew me out for it, but I completely believe most people subscribe to the theory that old is ALWAYS better than new. I don't, I try to disconnect myself from that and purely look at their abilities, and my finding is that Punk > Foley. People will appreciate Punk a lot more when he's not around than they do now, believe me.

Re: Could Bray Wyatt be the next Mankind???

I think we compare new guys to old guys far too much. Instead of putting them in someone else's shadow, look at them as a whole new persona.
