What is spooky about Stu Grayson dressed up like Vega?

Their look might take some getting used to but I'm definitely intrigued. Evil Uno cut a nice promo and I'm interested to see where they go with things.

re: First Impression of the "Mystery Tag-Team"/The Dark Order

My observations:

1. Evil Uno needs to cut back on the word salad. Trying to sound Shakespearian like that doesn't work for bad guys in 2019. Whether you're writing a book, a movie, a TV show, audiences are just over the bad guy with a thesaurus.

2. They're genuinely creepy, that's good.

3. They look different and have a unique presentation that I have not seen before anywhere else, that's good.

4. They still need to come across a little less seriously. You can't dress that ridiculously and then expect the crowd to take you at 100% face value as scary creeps. I'd think if anyone would understand this it'd be Cody and the Bucks. Either they have to tone down their look or inject some sort of irony into the promos

Either way, I'm intrigued and excited. I got some OG Wyatt Fam vibes from like 6 years ago

Who cares what type of mask he's wearing? The black and white, the leather, the silence and the throne of men feeling over the creepy fat man's body gets the creepy vibe across. If you recognize the Vega mask, good for you, it doesn't take away from the context and in any case, all masks are creepy. If he'd have been wearing a Mickie Mouse mask, it'd have been creepy. You need to appreciate the full context rather than picking at little things that 5% of people even took the time to research.

Even though he was wearing a Vega mask, it was modified and I think he was trying to be more like Jason?

The Dark Order. Just like that, having to get a new name and it works. Good show.

Loved the vignette. Seeing these two working with clear noticeable higher production with a major promotion is so exciting.

Yep. I'm excited. Maybe one of their followers gets unmasked...could be some good TV.

I got Humungus from Mad Max 2 vibes off Evil Uno in the promo.

Liked the human throne... and that's it they didn't do much, still I'm interested.
