Should the WWE create another dark character?

Do you think the WWE should come up with a dark character similar to the Undertaker? If you think so, what kind of gimmick should they create and also, who would you pick to play that role? I think even though he was eliminated from NXT, Eli Cottonwood could play a dark gimmick role pretty good. Hes got that sort of evil look to him. Share your ideas.

Re: Should the WWE create another dark character?

I don't really have any ideas but I agree.
I've always thought there should be another dark gimmick.
It can't be too similar to Taker though.
But yeah, I could see Eli being a dark "freak" type character.
He just needs some work, and I think he should become a little bigger, muscularly if he can.
Eli's just really awkward to me, and clumsy. But he could work on that.
And the awkward part could go with his character anyways.

THANK YOU PUNK.

No. Eli's not even Festus character material. Nevermind dark material.

It should've been either Raven or Mordecai.

I don't know if they have anyone on the roster currently who could pull that type of gimmick off.

True, with what we've seen.
He could work on it.
But don't they have some big guy in FCW named Jackson something, I think Andrews.
They could bring him straight in as a dark character instead of on NXT.
But who says a dark character has to be really tall anyways.

I really can't see Jackson Andrews pulling that off, all he has is height and as you say, there's no reason why a dark character would need to be huge anyway. Hell, they were going to use Hade Vansen in a 'Fallen Angel' type role and showed a couple of video packages but then pulled the plug on it. Vansen is about 5'10"

LOL. I wish Darren Young had actually taken on a Dark Cena gimmick.

No Dark Character will ever replace The Undertaker. I also can't believe you suggested Eli Cottonwood.

Hustle, Loyalty & Respect.

YES! YES! YES!

Re: Should the WWE create another dark character?

WWE seem to always fail with these 'dark' type charracters; Undertaker & Kane are the only ones with any ammount of success. They're gunna try and push Eli in the direction but as we've all seen from him already he doesn't have it in him to play the role properly (he's awkward on the mic, always looks down as if he's scared of looking at the fans etc).

Re: Should the WWE create another dark character?

They should have another dark gimmick in the pipeline for when Undertaker retires, but it has to be a unique spin and certainly not Undertaker V 2.0. Once he retires, that entire gimmick needs to retire with him, untouched.

I can't remember who it was, but I remember about 4 years ago there was a British wrestler who seemed poised to take on a dark gimmick and also hinted that he was going to lead a group of guys to take out Undertaker. Who was this guy? He didn't seem half bad.
