I have to commend Bully Ray for trying with this gimmick. He's playing a less whiny Raven if Raven existed in a comic book universe.
Remember when TNA used to have that very realistic feel during its backstage segments? Well, those days are long gone. It's time for the would-be directors to flex their muscles.
The segment with Bully was hilarious on so many levels this week for a variety of reasons, including, but not exclusive to:
- The cinematic camera cuts (the lighter flicks had me giggling)
- Bully's crisp audio, as though it was added in post
- Bully implying he had something foul smelling in his other hand
- Anderson's face
For those who haven't seen it who love when wrestling gets goofy, you owe yourself.
Bully Ray new character needs a good director and editor. I don't see anyone within the wrestling business with enough "cinema" quality to pull it off. Good old Ray is gonna be forced to pull it off by himself.
The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.
