This is awesome!

We have a roster full of vanilla midgets in black trunks who nobody (outside of Nxt Marks) give a damn about!

WWE give us some larger then life characters and story’s that will bring back old fans and casuals and the Nxt Marks shit on it.

Call him Rotunda and have him wear black trunks, so Nxt fan boys will blow their loads, further making it a niche product!

Why he has to be an evil clown, or Mr. Rogers, or a split personality of the two, or WHATEVER he is is beyond me. Vince screwed up a perfect character, he could've easily un-screwed it up. You don't have to reboot everything.

Either way, nothing will come of this. He'll never even make it on PPV with this gimmick, and he'll be losing on the undercard.
WWE ruined Brays cult leader gimmick by making him all super natural. His old character was perfect in NxT and the early half of his main roster run, but WWE booked him into a rut, the crowd gave him boring chants and no one took his promos seriously anymore because the booking was never consistent with them. Bray was literally a laughing stock, 'The Eater of Pins' remember that? Bringing back cult Bray Wyatt would have resulted in the same.

And while I don;t trust WWE to do this gimmick any better, Bray needed this gimmick change, who knows maybe there's still a little bit of cultist Bray still in there, it sure seems it. I don;t think it's a massive drastic change.

I'm being optimistic I know, (which is foolish when involving WWE).

You're speaking as if F grade horror doesn't have more entertainment value than current WWE.

It still entertains me, but for different reasons then it used to. Smackdown mainly entertains me, and I always catch 205 Live.

Re: Bray Wyatt's new look...

So will this gimmick get some "Uso HEAT" or be thrown in a bin.

No, he didn't need a gimmick change. He needed WINS. Anything that was ruined can be UN-ruined. Eater of pins? So have him win all the fucking time. Problem solved. What kind of absurdist philosophy is that? You made him a loser so now you have to change the gimmick? No, just make him dominant and people will shut up. Nobody's gonna call him the eater of pins if he comes back and kicks the world champions ass clean as a sheet and takes the belt like he should be doing, or even just beats some unimportant main eventers who aren't doing anything like Bryan. It's not the GIMMICK that's the problem, it's the BOOKING. Unless Vince McMahon whacked his head and thinks that Bray Wyatt is literally being performed by a different person, his booking is going to be exactly the same with this gimmick. That hasn't changed. Vince doesn't change his opinions on talent, you're always the same person to him.

This gimmick is fucking stupid and will doom him to the undercard. God damn, you talk about making him a laughing stock and needing a change, what's more of a laughing stock than having him dress up like Mr. Rogers and host a kids show? At least in the old gimmick, he got major feuds. He was the world champion. Do you think he's gonna be the world champion dressing up like Mr. Rogers? You can kiss all of that goodbye with this fairy tale horseshit mixed with Jekyll and Hyde or whatever crap he's doing. I still maintain he'll never make PPV with this gimmick. This will not be a priority for Vince at all, it's too dumb even for him.

Until an actual Firefly, like Captain Spaulding shows up then this is a dud.

Re: Bray Wyatt's new look...

Bray can pull this character off absolutely fine - my problem is that it takes two to tango. Who the hell on that roster can put him and the character over properly? You wouldn't trust a single one of this vanilla roster only interested in suicide dives to interact with that character the way they need to, it's impossible.

Great potential in the gimmick, but for me he's going to be let down by his opponents.
