The gimmick is bad, but the real problem is Curtis. How many gimmicks has he had by now? None of them really works, and his ring work is less than stellar. I see him future endevaured soon after he debuts, Escobar style.
This might work if they do it right. I hope they incorporate some of Johnny's creepiness into this character, he could be like a cross between Goldust, Disco Inferno and The Artist Formerly Known As Prince Iaukea. That could really work well.
