Re: Bray Wyatt's new look...
Well I fucking love this, and it works in large part because Bray is the best talker they've had since probably the likes of CM Punk and Jericho. His acting is brilliant. He's so good as the Mr Rogers clone. I only just watched them all now.
The opposites they're working with are great - the dark underbelly beneath the bright and happy exterior provides lots of avenues to go down. I really liked both looks to be honest.
What they need to do is build him up slowly like a Sting-Crow 97 thing. Keep it minimal. We get more vignettes each week. Then, what you do is progress into videos using that 'found footage' shaky cam style. It's Bray behind the camera this time narrating, creeping around maybe even outside the damn arena, claiming he's almost ready to come home or something like that. He turns the cam on to himself to reveal the nice guy Bray scowling.
Then he shows up maybe backstage just at a glimpse, behind someone else's promo, just quickly, and also maybe leaves weird things around. People turn up beaten up with a freaky mark on them. Week after week it escalates. Keep him out of the ring as long as they you can and let the slow burn happen.
By the time you get closer to an actual ring debut, you don't start with an actual match - the lights go out, he turns up in the ring and beats the living crap out of whoever then disappears.
Damn I should be a booker.
The best they can do is produce the character unlike the norm in every way.
I can't believe in the arena they don't turn all the lights off when they play them but anyway.

I will build a great wall and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me and Ill build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.
