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.
The gimmick really isn't that far off from his old gimmick. You're acting like his gimmick is on the same tier and the Funkasaurus, its still got some cultist undertones it;s still in the same continuity as Brays previous character too.
Its' like Undertaker transitioning into Ministry Taker. It's Bray Wyatt evolving and changing while still keeping some of the old Bray Wyatt. It;s not like the WWE/Bray didn't acknowledge that he never had the previous gimmick. So it opens up a possibility that he could return tot hat gimmick. It's character development, something this company has been guilty of lacking a lot of lately.
Bray Wyatt would never come back and just start 'picking up wins' in his old gimmick, because he's been there done that, it was very clear WWE were not into it or just 'didn't get it'. You honesty think Bray would return and start winning because you said so? You know he would come back and just lose again and again and again. He would be in the same position he was in.
At least with his slight alteration WWE might be able to think differently and it keeps Wyatt from begin stale, which to be fair he was becoming, because of the fault of WWE. I certainly will miss the cult gimmick, I was a huge Wyatt fan, but WWE fucked him over and I just stopped caring, because WWE stopped caring. Now with the slight change to his gimmick it opens up new possibilities.
Now saying that do I think WWE will do him justice? Probably not he'll probably end up going the same way, but at least this new approach has got me into Bray again and I am in for the ride while it lasts.
