Well apparently a lot of this is Bray's brain child. And even if "Yowie Wowie" was a Vince idea, it's something fans were chanting in the main event of MITB where Bray wasn't even involved. So like it or not, it's working.

I hope so. For 4 weeks in a row they had 4 weeks of fresh, new content with these Funhouse videos and with how quickly this company gets bored, a video like the one we saw on Monday can be worrisome, even if it was well done.

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.
The Sting 97 route isn't a bad way to go. Even if WWE book this well, which is unlikely but still,the gimmick will lose some of it's luster when Bray is back in the ring. Whether backstage, outside the arena, or in the crowd, tease Bray as much as possible and build the mystique around him, and only have him wrestle a true match when you have a big name lined up for him.

Werd. This needs to be a slow burn of all slow burns. If they keep on leaving little tidbits here and there that ramp up in intensity, my money is the angle will get bigger and bigger and people will be tuning in to see where it goes next.

Also I would say once he does start wrestling, he needs a unique ring style, mostly brawling IMO. A psychotic weirdo character for me doesn't care about doing inside cradles or body slams. What will get this over is the right body language and image commitment in the ring, like Mankind.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."

"You oughta see this guy - 'uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember,'"

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll 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.”
