Re: Bray Wyatt's new look...

Well they've captured my attention with Bray for the past month or so. It still leaves the question of how is this gonna play out with other wrestlers in front of a live crowd. There's some good storytelling to be done with him having dual personalities and you can do some long form storytelling. Either that or they'll overexpose the character like they do with everything else and kill him to death.

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.
Don't usually agree with this guy but I'm with him there. See, I love over the top gimmicks. From good old Kane, Undertaker and Goldust to Leo Kruger or the Bludgeon Brothers. And I'm been asking for more gimmicks for 8 years.

But this Bray Wyatt is too much. He didn't need to be this kind of creepy clown. His NXT gimmick was just perfect. I think this new characters has 10% possibilities of coming down great and 90% of being a cheesy act that has been forgotten in less than a year.

This will all be a waste of time when the first thing that happens is Rollins calling him a fat Mr. Rogers and curbstomps that Slipknot mask right off his head.

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.
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.

Re: Bray Wyatt's new look...

I think it's dumb. They should have used makeup and not a mask. Use some creativaty. Make it look REAL!

It might as well be, given how far this will get him. It's certainly the worst gimmick reboot that's ever been given to a former WWE Champion.

Did I think they would do that? No. Do I have to think they'll do something to demand it? No. I demand better.

This gimmick will job just as hard as old Bray Wyatt did. Actually, HARDER. If Vince didn't get a simple, easy cult leader gimmick, no way in the darkest levels of hell is there the slightest snowballs chance he "gets" a fucking Mr. Rogers/evil clown split personality gimmick.

Yeah, because of WWE, not because of him. I have to suffer with this piece of SHIT gimmick because of WWEs incompetance in ruining the perfect character for him. And you wonder why I'm mad and I hate this shit.

Even IF that's true.....it's 100% not, but even if it were, what's the point of him getting better booking if this gimmick sucks? I don't LIKE this new Bray Wyatt, so I'm not invested in what he's doing. I want the old god damn character that made me give a shit about his career. I don't care if he gets better booking now.

It didn't make sense for Bray to have a cult leader gimmick since he no longer has a cult.

Re: Bray Wyatt's new look...

Then GIVE. HIM. A. CULT.

The most ridiculous argument in the world.

"Hey guys, the ring got destroyed."

"Shit. Well, I guess we can't have a wrestling promotion anymore since there's no ring."

"Ummm.....we can just make another one."

"Nah, fuck that, it's too much work."
