Re: Bray’s gimmick is officially ruined

OK, guys, his gimmick was ruined years ago.

Why do you think he's doing what he's doing now. Because he knew he could not go back to what he was before. Because what he was before was a loser.

And what he's become is the most interesting he has been in years. Because while the initial Bray Wyatt character was ruined, it carried a lot of mythology and symbolism with it, such Sister Abigial (Abby the Witch), Buzzards (Mercy the Buzzard), his former character Husky Harris (Huskus the Pig), his old compound that was burned to the ground by Orton, which he then painted.

So he's not abandoning the stuff in the past. He's just using it in a different way for more comedic purposes, while still maintaining a sinister edge. Like when he was talking to Abby last week, she said "why won't you just let me rest?" And he laughs saying "I'll never let your rest! Never!"

Yeah, it sounds funny, but it's also kind of creepy in the sense that Bray will not let the soul of Sister Abigail rest. And people say I might be looking to far into this. I don't think I am, because I know Bray has put that much thought into this. Because from everything we've heard, a lot of this is Bray's own idea. I mean do you think Vince of all people would be able to be that subtle?

In the end, I don't look at this as Bray being "ruined." I look at this as a 2nd opportunity for WWE to ruin one of Bray's gimmicks that he got over.

Bray's gimmick ruined?

Absolutely not.

Bray Wyatt has already done more segments than Woken Matt Hardy.

The gimmick is unique and good enough to be remembered for years to come.

Even if Wyatt remains a mid carder for the rest of his career, Wyatt will have earned a spot in the Hall of Fame.

I thought it was Huskis, but on the YouTube video description, it is Huskus. Duh, with the chocolate, accent and talk of gluttony, he's clearly referencing Augustus Gloop. The more I rewatch, the more I uncover all of the subtle references. It clearly has WAY too much thought put into it to be any of Vince's doing.

Re: Bray’s gimmick is officially ruined

It's funny everyone having a meltdown on this and blaming Vince.

This entire thing is Bray's idea. Have a problem with it or his career, take it up with Bray. Btw, he's having a blast with the new character, he's all in.

The CHARACTER may be his idea, and if that's the case, he fucked up, but THIS IDEA, this week, was Vince. There's no doubt about it. It doesn't even fit with the other crap.

Possible. But Bray's all in like I said. These segments from day one were weird, each week they get weirder. Will see what the payoff is gonna be, and how Bray coming out to the ring will reveal.

Im digging this split personality Bray has got going. But we need to start seeing him in person and him using it in the ring or backstage. How long can this keep going before people get bored?

I don't think you are reading too much into, I think you are pretty much spot on. The pig was a reference to Bray's old character. With a little bit of the German kid from Willie Wonka thrown in. Bray's speech to the pig referenced lots of stuff from*his previous run.

The dance I thought was a parody of Vince's "Stand Back video", the whole 80's / Hogan period and Vince's love of big guys with big muscles..

There was a whole layer of subtle messages in that thing..
